Okay, so I was driving down the road, doin' the limit (about 80kmph), happy as can be, music cranked, and I hear this weird clicking noise. So I turned off the music, and sure enough, there is a clicking noise coming from the engine I have no Idea what this means, so I'm starting to worry, as my accelerator pedal loses pressure, and my engine shuts off. I manage to coast to RELATIVE safety (busy road, rush hour) and call for a tow-truck. The van is now sitting on the street, and the engine won't turn over. When I turn the ignition, all I get is a clicking noise (which started as a single click, but when I held the ignition down, it became a rapid succession of clicks). The lights come on, but fade almost to nothing when the ignition is turned. The oil light is also on, but I just checked the oil, and it is clean, and topped up. I also checked the battery, it shows a voltage between terminals of 12.34V at about 10 degrees celcius. I also checked the timing belt, and it seems to be fine. What has happened to my poor little minivan?
have the same problem?
