Hi,

After some expert help, I currently own a MK 2 G limited import, tonight whilst blasting up the motorway I came to the slip road slowed down and the engine lost all power with a terrible knocking sound coming from the engine upon acceleration, pulled over managed to get it started again, but I hardly have any power and this constant knocking noise. I managed to get it home after it cutting out about 6 times. All lights on the dash lit up, brakes and steering lost all power. Any ideas what the hell has happened to my 2!!!!!!

Was there any smoke coming out of the exhaust?

Hi,

Well I cant even get it started today, got nothing Battery is good but no sparking nothing. I had no smoke from the exhaust, when it was ticking over there was no rattle but upon depressing the accelerator, that's when the horrible rattle started, sounded like a tank last night!

Sounds like the big ends are the most likely culprit but without hearing the noise I couldn't say for sure. If its something else there might be an error code in the ECU, its wirth checking to see if there is one I suppose.
