Theoretically a leak down test is more useful than a compression test but it does require more, expensive equipment. Practically a compression test will let you diagnose bad cylinder sealing and you can infer poor valve sealing from the results. All this takes is a £20 gauge and a little oil if the readings are low. Which is why most people just do everybody does compression tests.


When you make the test, ensure that the engine won't start, crank it for a similar amount of time for each cylinder, and do it with the throttle open. The precise numbers aren't particularly important as good covers a wide range, but you do want all six to be close.

How come?
You walk in, ask for price and availability and they check the stock. If they have one they will tell you the price and that it will be two days from Germany.

If you ask really nicely, they might even fit it for you  :P

If you meant why they have stock, it's because they haven't sold all the spare ones yet  :y

WOW that's how it's done in UK but here in Portugal I'm sure it's not possible!
But if it could be done well, I would like to keep this car in family for the next 10 years or so and after that maybe retire it and convert it in a classic if I could afford to keep it in mint state.

That was about 2-3 years ago, and was exchange, probably be nearer £2000 now,  also they were gmx units.  Which I think we're done in Ellesmere.

Apparently no longer available from Vauxhall, but I was dealing with a retard. Needed reg or chassis number, gearbox and engine ident code. Gave him a 3.2 reg and computer said no.

Take your car to your nearest Opel dealer and ask :y

There is no local Opel dealer,actually Opel drooped so must in labor costs that right now deliver client support to a big shop that does work with major brands such as Toyota, Chevrolet, Opel, Seat and so on called "Auto Industrial". Basically they change parts and do a awe full work. I've a budget for engine repair around 5500€ made by them, can you believe that?!?
