Im new here and have a big problem and im very worried about it.
My nissan cube second generation automatic 1.4 bz11 engine has a serious problem.
The car has been running fantastic,really is great ride.The other day I got in the car and she took some time to start.
The engine kept popping really was a popping noise from rear end.The car did startbut would not move very fast so i persevered and eventually she ran a little better but would not go above 50 miles an hour.If i tried to go faster the car would engine would pop pop eventually after about 10 miles she came to a halt,and that was that.She just would not start again.I was towed to a garage that is very back street but good guys.I was told it was my starter motor so i got a second hand one which is fine starts up the engine but will just not turn it over.
The guys have tried everything they are now saying the timing must have jumped out of time.or a engine valve has gone which could mean thousands of pounds in work.
Im very worried indeed as the car dispite its age is on a finance deal.
Please,has anyone had a problem like this, are the guys missing something!!!
Is it better to go for a new engine !!any ideas.
