    Lo peeps,

    I had a small crack in one of my oil cooling pipes on my GTE when I got it
    over a week ago, but before I investigated yesterday I didnt know it was
    cracked. As I have tried to unscrew the pipe, it has not loosened from the
    metal part of the pipe, and has started to twist it, thus making the
    existing crack larger.

    I have contacted vauxhall for a replacementl, and I have to buy the two
    pipes together (understand), but costs £70. My local scrappy's dont have a
    GTE in stock or any parts, and have also contacted 5 parts dealers on the
    net, and four of them overnight have delivered the same message 'Not in
    stock'! Its looking like I might have to buy the new pipes, which I dont
    mind toooo much, but im all for saving money, does anyone have any short
    cuts to maybe fix, or a pipe off another vehicle, or know anywhere to try
    that mail parts? or even anyone with a spare GTE lying around :)

    Thx, ']['enacious
