Hi all hope someone can help me out.
Have a 2001 2.2tid.
Has been running great but now has a very loud vibrating/ grinding noise.
When first started its ok but after approx 30 seconds this loud noise starts.
A friend of mine looked at it and thinks its the diesel pump.
He thinks its a full engine out to replace it, is this so.
How hard is this job and anybody any idea of costs, hope someone can help

cheers ken

Anybody know a good Saab mechanic in the Manchester area.
Tried Pentagon, they want 80 pounds just for an appointment.
Have been told it could be the timing chain slipping, any other ideas.

cheers all
