Had me 2.0t serviced last thursday and looked at "again" regarding the backfiring issue told again cannot find fault.
My misses drove the car yesterday to pick me up from airport and total power loss.
I drove it back barely.
You get no respeonsivness from the throttle pedal in 1st 2nd 3rd feels like your trying to start the car in 5th gear.
Engine management light up.
Vx say fault code is Maf sensor.
They changed me sensor and noticed also that plug gap was 1.5mm which I told them to change to 1mm on it's service which they hadn't.
Vx Engineer test drove it this morning said it was fine, took it out again as I arrived at the garage 1630 ish by 1800 he still wasn't back then manager came out and spoke with me saying it had catastrophicly failed upon the engineer, and they think the engines shot.
Oooh whats that shock horror it's only just out of warrenty and now you believe theirs a fault.
Got to wait until vx direct get back to them tommorow to find out whether they will pay out otherwise it's me again with a bill for roughly 4.5k.
How easy is it to get piston's to fail or boost rings.
What about blow holes in pistons.
Who ever had the car before I bought it got rid of it for a reason now I know why.
The previous owner has definately had the turbo out for the reason's below, what else could cause my engine to fail?
recirculation valve spring was missing I replaced.
Securing bolts upon turbo housing x2 connecting to downpipe missing.
After market release paste upon turbo housing.
Inlet manifold from turbo gasket perished, and also carboard not oem.
Whats the common cause of piston failure?
Really am worried now
a) got to pay for the repairs.
b) got to pay for a car cannot drive
c) gutted might not be able to come to Pvs, well at leased not in the ill veccy.
