Have you checked the oil level? You cannot run these engines low on oil. If you suspect the big ends, do not run it any more! You may well need a new crank, to be honest it may be cheaper to drop a good second hand unit in. If the crank is not damaged, the new shells is not a major job. Get your mechanic to recover the car and drop the sump for inspection.

Oil Level was fine, that was what was starnge about it all.... its recovered now - hoping to get looked at asap - was just wondering if it rang any bells with you guys - so, fingers crossed the crank is ok?! ..... Love the drive of these cars, but boy oh boy..........
