Hi I own a vs commodore 97 v6 auto ,,I ve had her for over 6 years 2nd Female owner , color , panther green mica ,in reasonable condition body wise but motor has seen better days , when I drove her home first time she over heated on me I was so pissed off but the deal was done . now 6 yrs on ,shes looked after me well but I have neglected her a little, but replaced almost everything but the motor itself im not that financial this side of xmas so im limited in what options I have, yes im attached to my car otherwise I would of sold her long ago , ive just payed the next 3 months rego , I still drive her everyday but since about last 3/4 mths she cuts out on me as soon as I take any pressure off the accelerator just stalls ,dead .starts after a few attempts again and labors like its choking ,shuddering ,all under 80 kms after that shes smooth as ,ive noticed a white color on my oil cap underside ,so that pretty much tells me im screwed . should I pay someone to put a reconditioned motor in ? or is it not worth the bullshit ? thanks for reading guys .
