    Hello, I'm trying to find some information about the 20SEL engine in a 2000 Astra G CDX Saloon over in South Africa.

    Hi all, Ok so I posted a thread not so long ago about my astra 1.8 2002 cutting out. Well, it started to lose water due to a water pump failure on the seal, so seeing as it's done 162k miles, I decided to do an engine removal and rebuild. I took the head off, removed the vales and everything...
