Right, the story so far. i purchased the car and drove it for a month, the head gasket blew after 700miles, repaired under warrenty. Put her up for sale as had a blinding deal on a Civic TypeR but drove her another 600miles could tell something wasnt right.
went back to same garage - couldnt find any problems and car came out 2 MONTHS later with no 4WD, HICAS and endless amounts of other problems - they managed to snap a camshaft......

Car then given to a competent mechanic who has fixed everything, drives like an absolute dream. better than ever before. BUT its cost me £2000 to fix someone elses fcuk up and i really cant afford to keep her anymore. im trying to get the money back off the garage who destroyed everything else but this is going to take time :(

it's done 2500 miles since in the UK

have you had this looked-over by one of the Skyline specialists such as Abbey, RK, or Middlehurst? When was the last service, oil change, and cambelt with tensioner work?

didnt mention it the thread sorry, cambelt was changed last week and all oils change 2months ago. engine/gearbox etc(about 300 miles ago)

car hasnt been to any 'specialist' but the mechanic i use certainly knows his way around cars.
