Heard a loud bang today on my way to work. Just as I throttled a bit going uphill.

Went into neutral thinking “there goes the powertrain” and coasted onto a ramp.

Sounded like it came from rear left.

Inspected car - no blown tires or any cosmetic damage from what I could see.

Went into drive. Drove as smooth as always - so drive very carefully to my local mechanic. On the lift later today.

I’m thinking a broken spring because it was kind of a bang. And I did not hit or drive onto anything. At least I did not notice anything lying on the road.

When I drove to the mechanic perhaps I noticed the rear being very bumpy. But went below 20 mph so I cant tell 100%.

Diagnosis comes later today.

Aren't you considering something new already? I'd let that car know in no uncertain terms you're gonna replace it unless it straightens up and behaves. Threaten to give it quiet time over the weekend away from home at the dealer's if they don't find the fix today. Yes, I find talking to my cars immensely effective.

Seriously, hoping just a delam tread or 'random misfire'. Any lights or codes?

I KNOW RIGHT!!! :eek: (y):cool: at first it looked like he was having clutch issues because his shifting was suspect. Then it looked like he didn't want to break the tires btw shifts. I guess he figured it all out at the the end!!!

Its the same colour but otherwise see no idea in going 200 mph.

Inspection confirmed everything is good so took a good ride.

Must have been something on the road getting blown up under the car as I pass over it.

Symptomatically the stereo played “lost in music” as it happened. Perhaps I was paying too little attention on the road.

Your response from another thread. Seems to fit...
Still sounds strange but if it otherwise runs good...

If Long were you (or is it the opposite) - now is a good time for a beer.

Long: no beer tonight. Killed a magnum bottle of rosé and a really good 2013 Italian.

And now I’m ready for black jack and hookers. Anybody send a private jet to CPH. I’m ready to lay down New York.

I'm raising a glass to the two of you.

What's in the glass you ask? Why Elijah Craig Small Bath 1789 on ice. Very very nice.

To your health! 🥃🥃

Thanks guys.
Hope you had a fine evening Long. Such things are important to celebrate.

After my alcohol poisening last night I secured a few gallons of Coca Cola for tonight’s episodes of “Away” ;)
