Very bad 159 problem.
Ok guys... Just came home after letting a mechanic pick up my 2006 1.9 jtdm 159 with his truck and send it to my car service at 1 AM in the morning. I had some problems with my car and changed some parts.. Here is a quick list.
-Changed the clutch at 15000 (seems very common at 159s)
-Chaged both rear suspensions because of bumpy sounds (2006 and 2007 do suffer from rear suspension issues and thats why it is different in 2008)
-A rattling sound was coming towards the behind of the dashbord (right side) and this was fixed by taking out a part, and putting silicon
- Many sounds were coming from the cockpit and therefor i took many inteior parts, put silicon and stoped them from doing noises
- the lock and unlcok button right below the gear was stucked and the car never unlocked itself after locking it. this got fixed
- some issue with the fuel tank's pump and it was changed
- Oil leak from the below of the car and a part has changed
- Oil leak from the right front tyre axel and that part has changed
but today i had a major issue which made me worried.
I was driving my manual car and saw a bump on the road. So I wanted to pass the bump with low speed,thats why i put the car to manual. Right after i passed the bump with low speed, i put the gear on 1 and hit the gas but the car stopped working and all lights within the car suddenly stopped responding. and i am talking about EVERY mechanical thing. No lights, no signals, no interior lights, no dashboard lights, could not open the rear boot, COULD NOT take out of my key and it was stucked. could not start the car at all. sometimes the interior lights would turn on and go off in a second, especially when i pushed the start button the few dim lights that were on would suddenly dissapear and come back to its dim position again. Oh one more thing, the steering wheel was bearly turning right and left...
I am so scared WITH MY LIFE now.. i mean this happened when i was going with 5-10 kms per hour. WHAT if i was in a highway going with 140-or more kms per hour? what would happen if the steering wheel was stucked and there was no power in anyplace in the car?
I am a very good driver. I dont drive my car like a jerk. I always take it to the service even before it is called. I dont do anything to ruin the car. But i had so many faults as i mentioned above. But the latest one scares me. Did anyone experience such a thing or heard of it? what might be the problem?
this happened at a saturday night so the car will be fixed on monday but i am so angry.
I LOVE my 159 besides it is being a diesel (yes i truly dislike diesel engine and will never buy it again because of the sound).
but come on... where is the reliability?
