A 1995 2.0 16v Ecotec Cav CDX has come into my possesion.
The problem I have is a major engine fault. It rattles like crazy from the top. No, I don't mean tappets tapping, I mean a house brick in a tumble dryer.
It's obviously undriveable, in fact I won't even start it again but I just wondered if there was any common fault with these engines? I'm expecting to find a totally trashed camshaft/cylinder head etc, if not a wrecked engine although it starts straight away everytime and runs ok.
It's done 75,000 miles and has a full history. Any ideas chaps?
