2007 Ulysse engine lock

greetings! I have a 2007 Ulysse 2.0 diesel with 330k km on it. it was running fine, until i heard a metallic knocking noise that went away when i pressed the clutch. it went for about 300 meters until i let off the clutch and the engine seems to have locked up. turning the key does nothing. is there any point in taking the vehicle to a shop and try any repairs, or should i put it out to greener pastures?
there is no oil underneath it, so i don't think it threw a rod

Please help bros

Re: 2007 Ulysse engine lock

Hi.

The clutch might be a clue.

Either clutch..gearbox

Or the crankshaft ' floating along'

Towards gearbox.


Does depressing the clutch pedal still feel 'normal' ?

If the clutch appears ok.. then it sounds like an engine failure..


To rule out a gearbox problem.. can you turn engine with the clutch pedal depressed?

Re: 2007 Ulysse engine lock

the clutch is fine and the gearbox shifts

i finally came to the conclusion that it threw a rod
when trying to start the engine, the starter engages, as i can hear the clunk, but it won't turn over
probably pressing the clutch saved me from blowing a hole in the block and spilling oil but it is frozen solid after all
got it towed to a shop, gonna find out monday what killed it and if a rebuild is feasible
it had 350k km after all
might do an engine swap if i find one identical and in good condition
it is a pitty as there is not a spot of rust on the body and undercarriage

Re: 2007 Ulysse engine lock

Its the fact that before the motor stopped.. the clutch changed the sound..

That is a bit weird..??

Re: 2007 Ulysse engine lock

*update
a valve broke off and it was chewed, no idea yet what cylinder it was
one piston is royally screwed, and the head is beat up

i'm now hunting for a replacement engine, gonna do the swap myself in the coming weeks
the old engine block will become a coffee table or a flower pot, either way i'm keeping it
