i doubt immo fault as you would still have dash lights. does anything else work (lights/radio/horn/wipers) i would guess if lights work ign relay/fuse or switch. if no lights main earth or lives, regards steve

In Topic: Fuel In Oil And Ticking Noise

19 May 2012 - 02:43 AM

petrol is used co clean/remove oil from parts.....if you have petrol in your oil your engine isn't getting proper lubrication and this is probably causing the ticking noise (tappets-camshafts) get this sorted IMMEDIATELY as poor lubrication can damage pistons, block, crankshaft, camshafts, valves basically you will need a new engine!! please dont drive this car, get it to a garage asap. tell them not to add engine flush to the oil thats in but change oil and filter 1st....then find cause of contamination.... then add flush, & change oil & filter again and cross fingers its caught in time.
the alternative is to run it with the petrol/oil mix until engine dies then pay for a new engine & fitting!!!

good luck & regards steve

sueb, return this car for a refund QUICK. look at sale of goods act, fit for purpose or phone trading standards for free advice. this car will cost you money (probably just after warranty runs out) if it wont start tell garage to collect it (im assuming repairing garage is the same one you bought it from?)

pappa bear, sorry to hear your another victim of bosch pump failiure. if the tank and low pressure fuel lines were not removed and cleaned please get it done now. the problem on these is...

1, pump roller bearing break down and the metal particles travel up to injectors and down return lines back to tank, then back upto pump & injectors & back to tank.

2, injectors become damaged so garages replace pump injectors and filter

3 if garage doesn't remove tank & lines for cleaning you will end up back at square one.

don't rely on filter to protect your engine spend a little now and class it as prevention being better than cure
