Ok so I called the aa out again and this time i got a decent bloke,he tried alot and got it running with ver very low revs say 200rpm for about 20seconds.he took spark plugs out and turned over and it was firing fuel out like no tomo he didnt reckon it was chain as it ran-albeit at 200rpm and like a lumpy bag of mess...his best guess was overfuelling,he plugged in and got no fault codes,temp read 21degrees,would it throw out Fault code if timing chain had slipped?/was out? He said it sounded like it was runnin backwards at one point.any help greatly appreciated

Ok so tomo ill check all the wiring and make sure I have a good spark,if that fails I guess i have to make the choice between timing chain kit £115 + 18 for tool,and hope it hasnt done damage, an ebay replacement engine £250 plus postage or scrap it for bits and start again! Also im not a mechanic but a competant diyer which would u choose in my position?engine or kit?

Has anybody ever had a chain slip? What happened? Did it mean the end of the engine? Has anybody got any input at all? Could anyone tell me if this engine is an interferance engine or not?
