Weird engine sh@t today....wrong petrol?
After 3 months in pownership and nearly 9k km's without a major issue....today was the Big One.....all of a sudden the car started making an variable, rattling, bright metallic noise at all speeds which I can only describe as if a metal plate was loose on the engine block. The car drove as normal but this noise was unreal!....Took it to two garages, one independent and the other Audi / VW and both cliamed it was a camchain back or tensioner which had gone.......whilst driving it the car back up to the agrage that I bought it from.....it just went away as mysteriosuly as it arrived. At the garage they were crticial of me only using Shell 95 and not an 98.....however, I have been using 95 since I bought the car with no issues.
As I said the car was driving as normal with no warnings on the dash.
