Got a bit of a problem.
For our nice family car we run a 53 plate 320i saloon, lowered on eibachs, poly bushes, upgrade 17's, CNL remap, all stuff I can sneak past the missus! It's a lovely car BUT.... We recently went on a 'staycation' to Robin Hoods Bay, it's a steep hill to get out, driving up the hill in 2nd gear with the window down I could hear the engine ''pinking'' like a b*stard, or the little ends tinkling, gulp, i've tried an injector cleaner (live in hope eh) but no difference.
I can hear it when i accelerate in 2nd gear, 2 to 3k approx, there are no fault codes showing, car has 90k odd on it and is regularly serviced.
Any ideas? Do these things knock out bearings?
All comments welcome!
