My beautiful D4 is dead

Having had it serviced yesterday, it has decided to blow up.

Well, I guess the crank has gone, but wont know until tomorrow.

Uphill, light throttle, MASSIVE jolt and thud, and everything immediately stopped.

No power steering or anything, rev counter on 0.

If I pressed the starter, nothing at all, not even a click.

So its been dropped off at Tim Fry for investigation.

Spend £421 on it yesterday Embarassed

Although that might be a good thing, since Warranty Direct cannot argue that it hasnt been serviced recently!

This seems to happen quite often. Work done on car, then major failure, a day, or a week later.
Could there be an issue with the work that was done?

Car has done 101000.

I cant think of anything that the service could have done that caused this. It was only a B service, so nothing major, and being OCD like i am, I checked the oil level before I set off and it was showing full.

But yes, this does seem to occur after services having read about it.

Problem I have is that its my only car, and even if they agree to repair, it will takes months!

Oil filter is a D3 issue ISTR, plus it would take more than a day to go bang. Good job there is WD cover. Thumbs Up

Would assume that the belts were done at some point in the recent past. Question
Also, did it have an MOT when it was being serviced?

MOT was done in March, not with the service.

Both belts done about a year ago, by a very well respected indy, so unlikely to be that.

Been a Censored day. After dropping the car at the garage, I had to walk back to work as I needed to get my laptop as I will have to work from home the next few days. Its 3 miles, but after 1/2 a mile is started to absolutely Censored it down, and I didnt have a jacket or coat Sad Just my suit trousers and shirt.

So got back to the office, dried my self off and had to call a taxi to get me home, £50 Sad
