I've not been around for a while, mostly thanks to my missus for leaving at Xmas me after 10 years together!
Anyway... my faithful Veccy has properly chucked its toys out of the pram this morning! Drove to work and pulled into the car park and noticed the engine not sounding brilliant, down on power, rattling badly and the EML is now on. It sounds terrible - like tractor terrible.
It will restart after a few cranks. I've pulled the injector plugs on all 4 cylinders and 1 and 2 don't appear to make much difference. 2 seems to change the engine tune a little bit but 1 is completely dead. So it's running on 2 and a bit cylinders. The question is why...? If it was just 1 cylinder then I would be thinking injector or injector wiring - but it's affecting two and sounding terrible - so perhaps something internal mean i no longer have compression on 2 cylinders?
Oil and water levels are fine. EGR valve was cleaned a couple of weeks ago. I've disconnected and reconnected plenty of plugs in the engine bay, but to no avail.
Any ideas guys?
