Dear customer, do you feel that the motor is noisy, it only moves more than normal?

I would like to know how long you have without having performed maintenance on the fuel injection system and air intake?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
It’s last service was at the start of feb and noise is when it is and moving and when it is Reved up

Dear customer, I am concerned that the noise comes from an internal engine failure.I recommend you to do not use the vehicle or start the engine only strictly enough to go to a local garage. I am concerned that several cylinders of the engine have stopped working for what it presents the loss of power and the noise is due to a part with a strange movement inside the motor.

The best is to carry out the revision uncovering the upper part of the engine only to verify that there are no strange play and with this we verify that the engine has good lubrication.

It is also good to perform a compression test of the cylinders to verify that it is not a failure in them. In addition is good to check that the motor mounts/supports are not defective.

Have you understood me, dear customer?
