    ive got a diesel ford mondeo 2ltr, with like 65k on clock.

    the diesel knock is so loud now, i think its gunna blow up or something, its really pissin me off. i think its so loud, cos the oil that was put in by this dodgy garage was too thin, im thinkin if i change it to really thick oil, it might shut up a lil bit?

    or might it be somethin else? anyone kno?

    Give it one last send off. Rob a bank or 2, kill a mortal enemy of yours and bury it next to the Lion in Forbury Gardens.

    The knocking is probably the catalytic converter mate. Is the knocking when you go over slight bumps or just all the time ? Also where is it coming from?? Does it sound like its directly beneath your seat?

    How old is the car, when you say oil is too thin what wgt oil was put in it?

    To be honest if you put the wrong oil in then the damage is already done.

    throw a heavier weight oil in it and some oil stabilizer and see what happens.

    Surely you would have to drain the oil first?

    In your manual it will state the correct grade of oil to use in your engine.. However are you just running on a presumtion that it was the garage?

    How loud is the diesel knock? Does it just sound like a transit or is it very bad?

    I've told you, do an Ikarus and all will be fine.
