147 Gta

Hi all,

Just introducing and hopefully learning more about what goes wrong with my car..

I have a 147 GTA and out of the blue yesterday after driving 40 miles of mixed speeds i entered a small village, progressed slowly (approx.20mph) on a straight road when I heard a terrible metaalic crunching noise. I immediately pulled over and saw that gear oil was puring out below. Am very worried as am out of warranty and car has only done 33K miles... Could it be a broken driveshaft??

Re: 147 Gta

Thanks, will do. Just working my way round the website. i actualyy just jacked it up and after reading a couple of the other threads it could actually be the driveshaft that has failed. When I place the gear in neutral and the wheel is jacked up off the ground it does not spin free..

how is your GTA treating you...
