Maybe casting issue at the factory or maybe grinding the gears?
What does the gearbox place think it could have been?
They say that it is normal wear and tear.
I have a new problem. When I received my car yesterday, the battery was flat and they had to get one of their guys to jump start the car.
I drove +- 40km back home, but stopped at the mall. Went in, came back out, tried to switch the car back on but it just wouldn't start.
I got one of the car guards to push, it started and I drove off.
This morning, tried to switch the car back on and it just wouldn't start.
Got a neighbour to jump start the car for me and I drove to work.
Knowing that my battery is well over 5 years old, I decided to buy and install a new one.
Now, when I come to a stop street, the car just switches off. The rev counter is much lower than what it used to be before the new battery.
I don't see how the battery could be at fault here, so is it possible that these guys that fixed the gear box messed up the timing in the engine as well?
