Engine Mounts 156 2.4JTD wanted
My on going saga with my 156 sportswagon continues.
I originally posted saying that I had a knocking noise under hard acceleration.
£128 and a new drive shaft later..............it still knocks.
I had a mate of mine drive the car with the bonnet up and the engine appears to move alot for & aft when taking up drive.
I checked the top stabiliser bar/monunt and the rubbers are shot!
Also the bottom front engine mount seems to have a bit of play but its hard to see the rubber in this one.
I am thinking that the noise could be the engine moving/vibrating/knocking against something under power take up and hard acceleration. There is no vibration or anything under normal driving and acceleration.
Has anyone got a top engine stabiliser bar to fit an o2 plated 2.4JTD and possibly a bottom front engine mount?
Im driving to the Alps on Friday and need to sort this problem before I go.
Also heres a good one. Since its gone to 2012 the computer on my car reads the correct date but always a day in advance eg Monday instead of Sunday!! Italians for you I suppose. Just another bit of 'character' to go with the fuel gauge that always reads full but which the low level light works perfectly on!
