Any idea what these odd noises are?

Recommended Posts

Took the car for a drive. 35 mins later something evidently was wrong, flashing CEL. Pulled over and it stopped. Then started again and stayed solid - I got a P0300 code for random multiple misfire, however it didn't sound like it was misfiring and pulled just as well as it usually did. Nursed her home (only 2 minutes) but realised a very odd sound coming from either the gearbox or engine area, alongside a 'whining' sound when at idle...

Check the spark plugs and coil packs. Known issue with the Z. See if there is any oil or burning. 


How much engine oil are you getting through atm? Maybe a compression test is in order too?
