Hello guys, my mate rang me tonight and said that his car was broke, he said its making weird noises and it wont go into gear. He told me to come round so he could show me what he meant.
He came out the house started the car and within 2 seconds the car cut out, started the car again and it was making a weird ticking noise. When reving the car it sounds flat like there is no power. Then he tried putting into gear and it wouldn't go into first, he said that he tried to get it off the path and it kept cutting out all the time.
He has had problems with 3rd lately, it crunches everytime you go into 3rd. He took into into Vauxhall last week and they said they could find a problem, my mate and his dad said there is problem with it, its crunching, the reply was "we couldn't find anything wrong, it must have been behaving for us" WHAT??!
The worst thing is, my mates meant to be picking his new M3 up sometime next week and the VXR is getting traded in, couldn't have come at a worse time.
Any ideas of what it could be people?
