so hi guys,
my car (laguna 2 19dci) has broke down,
i heard a strange noise like a scoring sound,
i stopped and checked things out.
is was on a Friday and i was 2 mile from home,
checked the water it was very low, but my temp was OK.
anyway i had 1 litre of hot water in my flask so i topped up and drove the 2 mile home at tick over of as near as poss.
3 weeks later and a garage has come to pick up my car.
the batt has gone flat, so central locking wont work, and to top it all the key will not fit the passenger door to open it up.
as i don't want to bust a window to get in,
if the garage had come sooner it would have been OK.
now the other thing is, this guy at the garage says, that it sounds like it needs a recon engine,
he must be off his head surely??
i explained that once the car had cooled down fully, i filled the water up, checked the
, all was fine.
i started it up, and some smoke or steam was coming from the exhaust,
and the scoring sound, sound was still there, sounds like water pump and head gasket to me.
he has NOT heard the engine run, only my description to go off.
