So you have the engine cover off? Of course you can replace. Diagnose why it came off in the first place.

Garage at first did not know what was wrong. Then took cover off said its slack. And said maybe best get a second hand engine.


Why a new engine? Did the broken chain damage something? How many miles on the engine?

He said was easier to replace it .As a new chain might not fix the problem , He does not know if any valve damaged, The chain just went loose No power and only has compression off 160.. We have only owned this car since January has 119000 i think . On service stamp said belt been changed .Only its not a belt and a chain on it..
