GT Blackilne 1.9 Diesel - Serious engine problems. Any ideas?
I have a very poorly GT Blackilne diesel atm. Last thursday during my daily commute from work, I drove over a speed bump around 10-15mph when the gear jumped out into neutral and then a horrible knocking / tapping noise started coming from the top of the engine. The car has since had one injector replaced but hasn't fixed the problem. Tomorrow the plan is to remove the engine by a specialist Afla garage in Cambridgeshire and investigate the problem further.
The car has done 90,000 miles and yes, the engine had oil. However, the morning of the incident i noticed that the oil level was 2 bars on the digital display. I then topped the oil up with 1ltr of Shell HELIX HX5 15W-40 Diesel & Gasoline oil.
The car is in the best place possible but I would like to know if anyone has experienced the same issue or has any ideas as to what has happened?
Thanks - Jack B
