The car had been unused for about 5 months so i checked the oil and coolant and after putting a new battery in she seemed to start fine but she had an erratic idle and a delay in throttle response.
after looking through the forums i put it down to either MAF or throttle sensor or due to the battery being dead for so long it needed icu reset and was in limp mode.
Here in lies the problem. i had the car booked to have the chassis straightened last monday and i was going to address the engine issue after.
so it seemed drivable but on the way to the crashy i think i have killed the engine.
Loud noises from with in the engine....all bad!
I want to get in there and find out how bad it is but i dont know what caused it???
so my question is this what could have caused this?
i know its hard to answer without seeing her but some direction would be much appreciate.
i will be removing the sump to have alook at the evidence soon.
Firstly i was pretty annoyed about this but i really want to learn move about my beloved GTVs so i really look forward to a bigger project than i expected.
I will be diligently sifting through the forums to find as much info and guides as i go.
i havent fallen out of love yet
