car isnt remapped at all, i didnt have any symptoms of the dmf going and no starter like noises before the whole thing went bang. Basically it happened within one day. First it made a clonk when you would release the clutch harshly, then whilst parking it started doing it again then it went bang while in 1st gear and just refused to move so i got it to coast to the side of the carpark. When i restarted it again to see where the noise was coming from and revved it a bit smoke began to come out of the right side of the engine. makes a terrible noise which as i said goes away once i push the clutch but returns the moment i put it into gear - any gear and it has no drive at all in any gear. No oil came out of the car when this happened so i dont know what to deduce from this.
Dont know if this is of any importance, but after the cv joints were replaced along with the cv boots it was making a type of clonking noise when you would floor it. I was warned in september that it seems the gearbox is on the way out but the mechanic wasnt 100%
