    Hi Guys,

    Basically i was driving along yesterday and drove over a nice pothole, next thing im getting a very strange noise from the engine, pull up and open the bonnet and it seems to me like the engine has dropped on an angle to the left wheel, Got recovery vehicle out and got bk home, he doesnt think its owt major, im not convinced, any ideas would be welcome,

    Cheers all

    Have you checked the engine mountings, there is one on the inner wing near the water bottle?

    It's not a common fault,but as you've already said,it started after you'd hit a nice big pothole.
