Mine suddenly came on after a fairly fast 20min run. When I got home it was a grumble at idle but with a bit of throttle it developed into a full "bag of spanners" rattle. Took it to my local garage and they confirmed big ends. Sorry.
Following on with my saga, If anyone wants it for nowt, contact me. It's got good history, all the hand books even the dog guard.
Anyhow, I'll keep it till the end of next week then,I'mr afraid, it'll be off to the local scraper. Shame really.
On a lighter note the replacement, 156 2.5 v6 is really nice, and is a worthy successor, again from Clive at CG trading.
Hope for the best, plan for the worst.
