    well. my car is in the garage once again. its a tdi 110, and sounds like a tractor. put an egr delete kit on the other week, after a while the pipe split that goes from the manifold to the egr, so i removed and blanked off. Car has no power and sounds really loud so its in the garage and not coming back until everything is fixed.

    i reckon cracked manifold

    mechanic reckons bottom end

    what do you reckon?
    as soon as its fixed its going lost heart with this car now shame as if its the bottom end it will have to be rebuilt, top end was rebuilt a month ago (if that), the amount i have replaced on this car is ridiculous, dont know what il get for it really either, certainly wont get my money back thats for sure!

    No warning lights? I lost oil pressure and destroyed big end bearings.

    Lost all power and sounded like a tractor. I pick car up Tuesday

    Did you not unblank the egr and run a new hose? As you say you blanked it off then this happened?

    Get it scanned buddy. Always the first thing to do when a fault happens.

    Good luck anyway :)
