Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Got a hole in the oil pan--drove for like 2 miles without knowing and the car shut off while shifting. Didn't make any noise or smoke, just shut off like the car was stalling. Also, the car never overheated or anything... now it won't start--it clicks when i try to start it.
anyone know what the problem is? i hope it's not blown up haha
You may have seized the bearings!!!
let it kool down & disconnect battery then try to turn motor by hand & if it moves ok then you may be lucky !
but id get it pulled down & inspected as its likely to do it again! with dire consequences
