I think its spun a big end
Working on the 240 shifter adjustment for the reverse lights yesterday which I sorted by slotting the tab to slide the switch back slightly. Started the car to reverse back into the garage and a considerable amount of blue smoke came out the back. Not unreasonable for an old turbo etc after sitting for a few days I thought. Gave it a little rev and it cleared.
Went to start it this morning and its got an almighty knock which sounds like a big end. Nothing yesterday as all. Full knock this morning.
Can the oil pumps pack up?
Do they sometimes drain out and struggle to prime them selves?
Am I in denial and it actually needs a rebuild?
Its the quietest b230 Ive heard and has done under 200k. It was low on oil while I was a away a year or so ago and the better half missed it before it was lets say “really fing low!’
Im assuming the was damage done a while ago and now that its got the turbo on it its given up under the new ‘reauirements’.
Anyone got a spare b230ft fk sitting about??
I will remove this one and fix it up but need the car on the road asap for the wife and her business.
Fun times. Slightly stressed out
