Tonight coming out of Leeds I gently set of up the M621 to Gildersome M62/J27 and going up the hill I get a massive bang from under the engine ( 2.2 I-CTDI 2004). It was a proper BANG and something thudded against the bulkhead.
From another post I have running, I've been doing a spot if Italian tuning as I reckon I've got clogged up turbo VNT vanes.

Although it scared the life out of me and my passenger...it actually stayed fine, i.e. no power loss or noises/smells ( except my bowells!!). I took it easy to drop my workmate off, then it did smoke as I choose to accelerate off from his house. Then it cleared itself again and was back to being okay.

I think the car is due a rename from Sputnik ( due to its 235k miles ) to......Chitty Chitty Bang Bang PMSL :p

Wish I could fathom out what could cause a loud bang and then be otherwise okay.... wonder if the cat convertor has popped? ( temperature is okay though..)

Small-scale terrorist attack? Perhaps you ran over a very unsuccessful IED lol

Sorry, no idea.

LOL thats what it felt like :police:

Car was okay this morning except for when i got off the motorway. I came off the sliproad and stopped at some lights. Then when I set off there was a cloud of soot.:worms:

It might work out cheaper if I just bought a 2nd hand turbo unit and cleaned out the VNT on the compressor side. At least I'd had a spare turbo to play with when I took the old one off.
I could use it to make a jet engine :cool:

Ive had a rock drop off a waste truck before and bounce along the road.
Hit the underneath of the car and makes one hell of a bang.
