    Default whats the problem with my Cdti 8v?

    Right here we go,

    Car had a water leek which i had to keep topping up. Noticed the tempreture had risen to around 95c, pulled over and think i filled the water bottle up to quick and trapped some air as it was making an awful cracking sound.

    Drove about 10 miles and car went into limp mode, turned the car off and on again and it was fine, water temp was fine.

    Then started making a loud knocking noise from the engine internals, I reduced the revs to idle, It idled for 10 seconds then stopped dead.

    Left the car for about 15 minutes, went back to it, tempreture light was off the scale and i think it was the oil tempreture light was flashing away.

    Go to start the car and it seems like theres no compression.

    I called a diesel specialist, he said that the headgasket, water pump, belt needed doing along with skimming the head. And quoted me around £600-£700

    But that dosnt answer the reason for the knocking noise and no compression. I think the problems further down the block.

    Any thoughts?

    The cars only worth £2200 running so i dont know weather its worth spending the money to fix it.

    Whataver the problems are, you need to assess the total amount of damage to the engine before doing any repairs.

    No point in throwing hundreds at the head if there's more damage elsewhere m8.

    If there is damage other than the head, that might be the way to go m8.
