PostSubject: Zafira 2.2 engine stopped   Thu Apr 22, 2010 3:57 am

Hi All, My Zafira 2.2 engine stopped

As i recall when it stopped, we were travelling about 60mph when the oil light came on and about 1 min later the car came to a sudden stop, no banging or nothin, just died, it wouldn't start back up, recovery man said the engine seized, but i think the timing chain has slipped, causing it to bend the valves, making it seam like it has seized, i think

hope it can be fixed, i love my 2.2 zafira

thanx shaun

i could be wrong, but i was told by a vauxhall mechanic that the vauxhall engine was designed that if the timing belt/chain broke that the valves wouldnt touch the pistons and eliminate the valves being bent..
may be the oil pump ..packed in..

Sorry everyone for the late reply, internet playin up ok for now, hopefully.

i have been told oil pump packed up, causing the engine to seize, but i had no oil light on until about one minute before it stopped, if that helps

how much for the c20let box and loom, is it complete with engine

if anyone knows where i can get a z22se engine please, it will go straight in saving the has of modifing the engine mounts, i am looking to pay around £200 to £300, if anyone can help, as i am out of work

hope thei answers most of your questions

thanx for all your replies
