Bye Bye motor. Spun rod bearing maybe? Whatever it is, it's not good and I'd recommend that you do NOT start up your car anymore, you'll just do more damage.


Pretty legacy though.

sounds super loud.... hmm after exhaust installation?

remove exhaust and see if the sound is still there... it does sound like a bearing/rod issue though... but if it was fine before the exhaust.. mm :|

oil level do you ahve it? What kind were you running?

the reason im not too sure about the spun bearing is that i just had the pipes put in...it just seems to make more sense since i just changed my oil

after a downpipe install? who did the work? did they take it for a "test drive"?


don't let him rebuild it, just go for a swap.

You're welcome, sorry about your car :-(


Time to upgrade the internals while you're in there!

i thought about putting a different engine in there and doing some upgrades, but i just want to get it fixed...it had some serious balls already before it died. 280hp stock...i had an intake, TBE, boost controller, and some other stuff done to it.

if we get them over here for decent money on ebay, im sure you can find a good replacement motor for your car for a fraction of what an engine rebuild would cost you.
