Serious time

All gtis sound like they tap a bit on idle. This is down to noisy injectors. Ive never heard one that doesnt. Difference is as soon as you pick up the revs, the engine noise drowns out the tap so it should disappear. If the tap picks up speed and volume with the revs, its definitely a tapper and regardless of if its been "repaired", should be avoided!

Cambelt history is essential. They should be done about ever 30k on this engine!
knocking top mount on pull away. Gtis have a habit of breaking the cup where the engine mount bolts too. Fairly easy welding required to fix this.
Oil leak. May look like its coming from the cambelt area, usually it comes from the brake servo pump on the side of the head and runs along the back edge of the head.

tapping is the valves being bent. If they are slightly bent they will tap. Think thats hitting the top of the piston every time it comes up? If they are bent a bit more they will be wearing away the guides they sit in. Either way any tapping you are looking at lost power AND a head rebuild which is anywhere between £400 - 700 depending on how much work you get done, how much damage there is and whether you get it done pro or do it yourself. What Niall said about the tapping getting faster and louder the higher the revs. Cambelt replacement is killer on these so unless its been done recently id get it done asap!

Basically. It pays to get a good 6 in the first place instead of getting a crap one and having to fix it!

Standard stuff to look for is shagged beam, beam mounts, make sure the temperature is in a decent place on the test drive. mmmm rallye specific... make sure the window winders work? D:

oh and make sure the racoon filter is in good condition. They are a dealer only part and expensive to get hold of if its knackered Sad

the valve tap is the head of the valve not seating properly every time it returns home. Eventually the head will snap off and destroy the engine!

with regards to temp, they run hot! Its not unusual for it to hit over 100 degrees in traffic situations.

National farmers union allow you to change car on the policy with no admin fee, essentially change it whenever you want.

Might be worth considering..

well i didn't get the six! Sad tell me i made a wise move!?

story time!

these are the pictures that sold the car to me in the first place

   
   

so after lots of messaging i got the price down from 1300 to 750 less than a month MOT left and 6 month tax
subject to viewing,
so today was the day i went with £1000 in hand to go view on the hope of driving away

first inspection found
4x new kumo 195x45x16 on speedlines nice!!!!
condensation in masked headlight
C/L worked on drivers door only
no radio
service light on
paintwork Highly polished but left to go dull
lifted bonnet water low in rad
ign on fans ran fullspeed from warm ign off fans ran at half speed
topped up water this stopped
engine quiet no tapping through rev range on idle
idle control sticking

Test drive
Clutch slipping
engine pulls strong in all gears
gears smooth
reverse stick release sticking open letting gate to reverse
clonk from back on revers locks
clonk from front on forward take after reverse only
water leaking out poor sealing rad cap no bubbles in water has antifreeze

Jacked up car from centre of rear beam
No CAT
N/S handbrake cable broken
O/S Beam f*cked! i mean really f*cked in out movement and up down
arch liner all eaten away


bodywork very clean
interea very clean

sum up
this car in its life has been a show car highly polished and clean to such an extent some of the body edges have been polished through to the primer

i believe this car in the last two owners has been neglected and as it stands needs a major overhaul
things needed
Cambelt
clutch
rear beam
handbrake cable
probably service


this will be a nice car again if someone is prepared to spend a load of money
