Major Problem...Urgent Help Needed!



  is dirty.
Was driving along tonight with my girlfriend in the car, started to accelerate and heard a loud bang. Then the car sounded like a tractor and if I drive in first gear the gear stick comes really far back when I put my foot down.

Any suggestions?

I am absolutely gutted. Cant wait to chop it in for something with much better build quality and something far more reliable :dapprove:

Yeah it is down on power but I cant drive in 2nd or 4th to be honest. Just 1st 3rd and 5th. It feels as if a mount has gone. If it's the engine mount how much am I looking at?

Would that also explain why I put my foot down in first and the gear stick comes way further back than it should? It sounds stupid!!

Yeah this is coming way further back than usual. So I'm looking at a coil and engine mount. Any rough costs guys or?

Oh and any suggestions on a new car up to £7000?

Thanks a lot for the help...much appreciated.

The mount might have busted you gearbox to as where it is attached it is in the gear box. When you pulled away did you bring the clutch up to fast?

No not really, when I stop the car, the gearbox seems fine but it's when I'm driving. I hate my clio!! :mad:

Rear engine mount had snapped and done a fair bit of damage to the exhaust and the mounts. Couple of hundred quid unfortunately :(
