    Ssangyong engines are made under licence from Mercedes and are not made by Mercedes.....there are differences which may make it incompatible.

    We have managed to find a guy who is willing to re-build our engine after calling 5 garages but they can do it

    Something went wrong with when we bought it then it's been at a garage waiting to find out what's wrong with and whilst it's been sitting for 2 weeks it's ceased but the new garage are positive they can fix it. She should be running by the end of August as they can't start it until 03/08/15
