Yes mate it had a new LuK clutch and slave cylinder fitted, and the clutch line was replaced too.
hi mate, heres a massive update on this!Faulty clutch I’d say. Only other time I’ve had that is an Astra 1.6 with thrust washers gone on the crank, rattled until clutch pressed lol.
Be something simple.
altho second video doesn’t look good ....
Thanks mate. Strange thing is it sounds like its knockng from the top end and not bottom. I dont have great knowledge of that tbh, but even Kris said it didnt sound like bottom end. Plus there was another lad with him working on it and he said the same.Theses don’t run lifters. They’re solid buckets ( set clearance buckets non shimmed )
that oil looks abit weird. If it still sounds s**t , it’s probably either finally spat a big end, or somethings adrift. if You was closer I would of had a look at it for you.
Actually tel a lie , I have seen oil like that before. A scenic I rebuilt an engine on last year , the lump i took out had bad service history( lack of oil changes ) that was all like that , including a very clogged intake port.
bet sump is full of it and it’s span a big end
Got a front starter kangoo engine at the unit if needed. Ran fine until pump s**t itself and took injectors out. Pulled it out to fit a 1.9dci into the van
bottom end knocks on these sound like top end knocks.
if Chris pulled the sump and took the main caps off one of them will have span , or rod bearing.
injector knock will have it chucking smoke out the exhaust as it’ll be overfuelling. Cam rattle doesn’t sound anywhere near as bad. id also assume timing is correct Again.
Doesn’t matter how many oil changes you’ve done , that scenic had multiple oil changes by the owner over a two year period but the mejority of s**t had already done damage.
make sure Chris puts dust caps on EVERYTHING to do with the fuel system if he has to take it all apart , slightest bit of s**t will damage an injector. Fragile things lol.
Probably find dropping in the new lump will be fine. Injectors don’t need coding to get it to run. They’re only C2i codes for fine running/ emissions control.
any help needed drop a PM mate
Sounds like the garage had absolutely no idea and was using your money to fire the parts cannon against it. I wouldn't be happy that parts kept being replaced without it solving the issue.
I get that, I really do. But there shouldnt ever be a need to just throw parts at a car hoping it will get fixed. I can understand how you can end up being in deep all of a sudden and at that point seems pointless taking the car away from where it is but another specialist might have found the issue instantly!bit of a strange situation really. Kris has been great, and has seen it through but it is a shame there wasn't a guaranteed diagnosis from the start. Was so frustrating for me that the engine was fine until the clutch was replaced but I appreciate sometimes things can start going together.
Like i said above, had i known from the start i simply wouldn't have got it fixed. I was in that situation where I had already spent £400 on the clutch and disnt want it to go to waste so got the injector done, then by that point im almost up to £700 so didnt want that to be a waste, so fuel pump etc etc and so on. And here I am £2000 later.

Especially as it's not even fixed, youd hope labour was waived on parts that didnt solve the issue. Imho of course.
Wasnt the car plugged in to clip? Why did you also spend money on a new fuel pump and then fit the engine with the old? Parts should have been transferred over when it was out of the car!
jeez looks like the 4 bolts that locate the column are loose !!
those should be done up in a specific sequence. Get down in there and look straight up, you'll see 4 13mm bolts that fix the column to the upper dash dupport.
have they had the steering column off ? if so, why ?
If that is the case I'd look into the 10mm nuts that fix the pedal box down as well, since you're complaining about the accelerator vibrating.
the actual operation of the pedal is fully electric so there is no physical connection between it and the engine, the only thing that can cause that would be some sort of movement around the firewall area, that's my guess.
what's going on with this car ??
