Default Will not make NEBF......

As I have mentioned before to some of you my LD8 had been making some odd noises (mostly at idle) well about 3 weeks maybe a month ago it stated dieseling not bad (but not good) I have been hoping it was Chity gas. But this afternoon something else happened when i pulled in to my driveway (see pic) It felt like the car rolled over on it self (at 15khp) and the traction light came on. so i went to see my service adviser took him for a ride and he asked if the TC was working said to Make it work well I did and the car dieseled (nice) lets just say he didnt like that Also saod he could possibly hear a knock (yup me too) so depending on whats going on tomorrow Looks like I'll be pimpin a rental for the next few days. (least I'll have tunes) I think there are some front end issues I noticed a dry moan when i put it in reverse one day. Do i think its that bad to not make the trip No. Do i think its going to blow up No is that a chance im going to take NO

Most likely it will turn out to be bad gas I only run Ultra 94 but the octane could be too high and as far as the engine noise I think it'* the water pump stupid internal pumps. As for the front end noise worn parts ?? oh well I think there arfter the warranty work so let them have at it.

Better safe than sorry.
What'* dieseling to you? To me it occurs after you turn the key to OFF and I've never seen an efi car do that.

no the car shuts off nicely.. To me dieseling..... when you mash the gas just as the car takes off it for a second sounds like a Duramax. They called me this morning and advised that the tech that is or will be the one to remove the heads and take a look is on vacation till Monday So I hope its just the gas being to high on Octane.

Lol... gotcha. I believe "dieseling" generally refers to the air/fuel mixture continuing to ignite after the ignition spark is removed from the equation; i.e., the heat and compression generated is enough to keep the car running, just like a diesel.

But that'* not good if your car sounds like a Duramax. I don't know how gas with "too much octane" could cause such a thing, unless you're putting some kind of crazy race gas in the tank. Hopefully they get it figured out. Is it still under warranty?

yeah It'* covered so I don't really mind them looking (I'm beginning to think that the previous owner might have been a little harder on her then i first thought)

And the last time i had a car make that noise was when my water pump on my 3.1 Buick century let go and stubborn me drove 40kms to a town to call a tow truck it got so hot it was dieseling. And i know my car hasnt gotten hot like that since i have owned it.

and Maymybonneliveforever I'll be around for the TO meet this summer I'll bring the beer.
