If it can its very tempting to keep it. I have seen some Toyota and Honda petrols pass 200K. My car isn't too old and I'm 2nd owner so for its first 4 years it did 10-12K and I know since then I have serviced twice a year and the miles I've put on it are from motorway driving.

If it runs fine now for a week or 2 I will get the cam done and look at the wheel bearings another time, I actually think the AA warranty covers the wheel bearings and since I didn't claim on this recent fault (plugs = serviceable so I paid the £60) I am not in any cooling period so if the noise gets worse and the bearing needs replacing hopefully they can do it for the £35 excess

Have something to contribute?

your are better off starting your own thread instead of piggying on the back of this one

also, put as much info as possible about your car and what happened.

More information please, does not start and cut out in ___gear?  Have you had the fuel filter change? Is the engine turning over without the usual resistance to the starter motor?
