    Gday everyone :)

    My name is T1ct4c and I'm a Copenoholic!

    I've joined because my poor little car is sick and I want some advice on fixing her. It would also be fun to find other Copenophiles in my area to maybe go on tiny car convoy cruises sometime. Only thing better than one Copen is several, right?

    So... stop by, say howdy. If you have any experience with importing and fitting crate engines into your tiny beast, DEFINATELY say hello, I'd appreciate a chinwag.

    Seeya,

    Tic

    Hi Tic,
    Welcome to Copenworld.
    I don't think anyone in the UK has a Crate engine fitted.
    Not that I know off anyway.

    Hi Dwayner

    She's got a cracked head - tiny but evident on pressure testing when hot. She's also burning oil - we're not too sure why or how. Mech's quoted about 3 - 4K for a rebuild so has suggested a replace as a cheaper alternative.
    Any ideas?

    hi tc

    never heard of a cracked head on a copen before, so dont know what to tell you. do you know the cause of the crack? I service mine every 2 months - wether it needs it or not - cant take a chance with these cars - parts are hard to get.
