Hi Mike had service done about 10 weeks ago
put code reader on ...no fault codes only saying misfire
RK03 FWE 140.000 miles
no lose of coolant or oil and has not overheated
no fault on dash
will start and tick over but banging from right hand side [ not metallic ] a bit of black smoke form exhaust and not a lot of power [ it will move forward and back ]
thanks hope this helps...Rob
Hi there Rob - Thank you for your reply and extra info..
Your info sorts a few ideas out - but when you say its a "banging"... is it like a heavy banging / or "knocking" ??
Plus when you say " it will move forward and back".. are you meaning it drives ok transmission wise --? No issues there..
And to help clarify that - is the engine running like a misfire even on tickover?
Too -- can you get the engine to run better - as if its clearing , when you raise you the revs on tickover?
One last question - when did this all start ? Was it soon after the last service for example / close to that -?
yes it will drive forward and back no transmission fault but no power
yes the engine runs like a misfire even on tickover
i can get revs up but banging gets louder
IT started when i was driving on motorway , lost power and started to knock pulled over and got breakdown to come for me it will tickover and it will not overheat have checked head gasket ...ok..it was some time after service...thanks Rob
