    I suspect that I may need my engine to be rebuilt on my 2007 CR-V DIESEL 2.2.
    I was driving when there was a bit of a bang and the car suddenly stopped, and a diagnostic from my local garage indicated timing chain problem, and I am awaiting another diagnostic test from Honda Gloucester.
    I am expecting the engine wants repairing and I can not afford Dealer prices, so I need members suggestions of good regulated engine repairers or any other advice you can give me.
    My car is quite high mileage, however I think I fell into the trap of thinking that timing chains do no break and the engine would be ok,but research has told me otherwise.
    Yours tankfully ghost rider.

    Alas, I am not able to suggest anyone over your way that can help.

    Is this the I-CTDI , engine in your CR-V?
    If the chain has broken, this could be very expensive to fix.

    I think that it will be easier for you to replace the engine with a low mileage one from the breakers.

    I may go down that route, or I may look into getting a remanufactured engine from Ivor Serle

    Yes, it is a chain and I am looking at a very big bill, about £150 for Honda to diagnose what has gone wrong before work stars.
