Fixing a smart car engine with loss of compression in one cyclinder?

smart car

On returning from a long drive south london, the engine management light came on and I lost power. A local garage diagnosed loss of compression in one cyclinder and a damaged spark plug in that cylinder but said the enginer would need to be opened up. Can anyone advise where I can get the engine opened up for a reasonable price in south east london.

  1. sorry but it sounds like you will be needing to rebuild your motor or put in a new one, that won’t be cheap ANYWHERE.

  2. A damaged spark plug usually is an indication of a thrown connecting rod bearing.Probably put a hole in the piston and scored the crankshaft.Could of damaged the valves,pushrods,lifters,etc.

    Complete rebuild = $$$$$$$$$$$$
