Hi guys, I've just joined the community today so this is my first post!
So I'm 99.9% sure that my ISB has gone bad and needs replacing.. I just need my local garage to confirm this on Friday...
I've done a ton of research which has led me to this conclusion; but it would be great just to get some opinions from you guys too!
So here goes:
-When my car is running and in neutral it makes a kinda whining/ growling noise UNTIL I press the clutch down and the car will idle silently.
-In 1st 2nd and 3rd I can hear the noise when accelerating - cannot hear it in 4th and 5th but that may be because of road noise..
-I'm having no trouble whatsoever getting into gears..
What are your thoughts?
Is this something that needs to be fixed asap or can it wait a little?
Also how much do you think a garage will charge to take the tranny out, replace the bearings and change the clutch!?
And is there anyone near Oxford Milton Keynes or Aylesbury that would consider doing this cheaper than a garage would? A side job for a mechanic maybe!?
Thanks for reading guys and let me know your thoughts?
