How much! could the clunking not be something as simple as engine mounts? (If its very shagged) but you didnt state where the sounds coming from? ... i presume it was fine on the test drive?

perfectly fine on the test drive, and my dad drove it 40 miles home and it was fine, the sound , sounded as tho it came from lower engine but not certain. as it only made it baldy when i bumped it from towing and turnt it straight off again.

Does'nt sound great. Stepper motor should be causing that mechanical clunk you heard.

I had this happen to my old car.(ford)

The fly attached to the camshaft which is at the bottom of the engine sheered of inside engine. Made a clunky noise. Then i lost power. Its the same affect as if the belt would have come of. No top end drive and i f_ucked head too.

Does it have compression when you bump it?

as suggested, may as well check the top engine mount.

seeing as its free:


FAQ Mount

if its anything like the one pictured here, could well make a Very nasty noise on start up / or when revving etc.

Crack

Doubtful, but worth a check Thumbs up
