the joys and pains of a cinq owner

Posted 13-05-2007 at 16:34 by cinq117

Put on my fast road pads which is still bedding in at the moment and have ordered my shoxs and wheel spacers. Things where going all hokey cokey until i was driving through sunny saff east london then my cinq decided to stop dead and won't start. tried to turn it over and there was a funny noise with the fan belt. i checked it out and it was the alternator. took the thing off and it was seized, infact i couldn't even turn the pully with my hand. bought new one 80 odd quid sorted that out then guess what ??? started my car one morning a lovely puff of white smoke, took off the oil filler cap and yes creamy stuff on the cap...its a head gasket job ...ahh well at least its given me a reason to modify the head and get a bigger Thottle Body .....the joys of a cinq owner.
