    Default I think its happened

    Sitting on the N2 Hospital Bend in my D3 which I think has just broken its crank.

    As much as I hope it hasn稚.

    I値l post updates as soon as I know but it値l take a few days. Taking it to LR Services on a flatbed as soon as they get here.

    Sad day for me as this has to mean a change of something. Apart from a decision on how (and whether) to fix it.

    I hope for your part not. Have some faith. In March I sat stuck on the N3 just on my way to DBN, and also thought the dreaded end has come. Turned out to be only the fuel pump that went.

    Symptons was following :

    Driving along nicely, then all of a sudden no more revs, no more power, nothing, just like that. Car freed to a standstill on the side of the road, and then died. After that it turned over but refused to start. Engine light did come on.

    Couple of loud knocks as if maybe something like a conrod had let go then engine stop then coast to a stop. Feel very fortunate that the lanes to me left were open and I could coast over to the verge. Hospital bend is a pretty dangerous spot to break down.

    Motor turns but doesn稚 sound good. Hoping for the best but seems as if it痴 the big C.

    No codes. 353117km

    I値l post when I know.

    In all seriousness. Good luck. It must be a terrible feeling. Let us know if you need a tow or something.

    Well at least you've done decent mileage. Still a bummer though!

    Lets hope he bought it new and did all the mileage.
    It would be a bummer if he bought high mileage

    Eish. Mine did not make load knocks, and when it turned over it sounded 100% normal. Just refused to start.

    I bought it at 350k from a buddy. I went in with my eyes open to the crank issue though was hoping that with 350k it was a 堵ood crank. A little naive but life is full of little dreams and tales.

    Im hoping I can post some good info though on what happened.

    Holy #####. If it is the crank, you have some serious bad luck. Only 3k km done before that hits you. EINA.

    You overpaid by roughly R350K
