wife was just driving me into work for the last day and the car gave up.
52 reg Fiesta 1.4 TDCI
It was working fine last night,
Started fine this morning, ticking over while de-icing.
pulled out of street and there was a little whiff of burning rubber
drive out onto the street there was a 'slapping' sound coming from what seemed like the front passenger wheel.
got out had a look couldnt see anything.
carried on a bit futher, the slapping continued getitng louder then a dull THUD, then a scary, metal on metal screeching noise.
the car still turned over then common sense said, turn it off its fooked.
answers on a post card please
i reckon its the timing belt snapped or there was no anti freeze.
its was serviced about 10 months ago.
the timing belt as far as i know has never been changed.
will keep you posted as i wait for mr RAC.
just before Christmas great!
