    Default Sydney Peugeot mechanic

    Hi all

    does anyone know of a good mechanic in Sydney who knows anything about old pugs ? 89 mi16.
    I need to get a head gasket done. Also how big a job is this ? And how many hours should it take ?
    I have talked to Paul at A P but he hasn't the time.
    Thanks

    Any mechanic can change a head gasket and get the head machined if required.

    Whereabouts in Sydney are you to help direct you to our stalwarts?

    Colliers at Granville are a possibility. Reasonably near the railway for your trip back. Collier's Automotive Services > Home Not cheap but they know what they are doing.

    If you can wait for Paul V at AP automotive then he's the one to do it. Otherwise PQ Automotive in Chatswood used to be good. Not been there personally in a while though.

    I'm guessing your Mi16 has the alloy engine? I'd say all you need is a good mechanic, not necessarily a pug specialist.

    Yeah, 89 has the aluminium alloy block. I'd recommend a Peugeot specialist just for peace of mind about knowing what to do with clamping the wet liners and issues such as caution with snapping the head bolts on removal. I know this isn't the only engine with wet liners, but I'd still suggest using at least someone who's worked on this engine.

    And secondly, someone with a Back of Steel​TM which is what you need while bending over and undoing the rearmost bolts on the head.

    Yeah, I'd take it to a French car specialist... many independents advertise themselves as European car specialists so they can charge top dollar to BMW and Merc owners... a good mechanic will love working on your car as much as you love driving it. The way it should be.
