Loud noise on start up
I was wondering if any of you out there may have experienced the same issue that I had a few weeks back.
I tried to start my 1.9 jtdm in the usual way but was met with a loud rough noise coming from the engine. The car failed to start and after about 4 seconds I thought it wise to pull out the key. It's difficult to recall what the sound was like all I can say was that it sounded like a really rough diesel start up noise from a way bigger engine.
The only thing that was in anyway different on this day was that I had the car washed in an automatic car wash about 45 minutes previously.
I've not had any issue with the starter since this happened about three weeks ago.
Any help would be appreciated:
