so the car has been looked at, no compression on cylinder 1 or 2, best case scenario, headgasket failure, worst case scenario cracked head between 1 and 2.
Basically theywont know the full extent of the damage untill the head is stripped. I have only a maximum of 500 to cover it but if the head is stripped and its knackered then it is a wadste of labour as i can not afford to fix it, can get a second hand engine for just over 300 quid but no means to transport it.
What do I do? strip it and try and get an e36 for around 500 or risk fixing it on the hop of it just being headgasket?
