    Need Help, Car keeps cutting out??/ What could the problem

    Ouch, for a 1.4 gearbox. I might just have to leave it as it is, and when it dies on me then sort out this engine swap, surely much better time saver and money saver in the long run? But will future gearboxes or engines have the same issues?

    Engine Swap Into A Seat Ibiza

    Been a really long time since ive had a chance to get onto the site, thanks for the advice. Any idea if it would be hard to do myself?
