the vehicle should not be driven or attempted to be started/driven in this condition.

it is very difficult to diagnose a noise that one cannot hear.
the most common thing that would cause the car to die out like this would be a failure of fuel delivery of some kind (pump, injectors, etc)'
ultimetly proper hands on testing will be required to verify, as I cannot do so if not at the car
Hi i will give a good rating honest! The car didn't die on me however, i stopped it cos as an engineer myself my mechanical sympathy gene kicked in! It would then not try to start even (i've never had starting issues before), regarding the noise - the rattle turned into a more severe scraping at the time! I'm pretty sure it's not a fueling issue, are all the starter teeth sitting at the bottom of the bell housing?!?! Thanks again, and i understand how difficult diagnosis via the net is! Regards Bill.
