Was the car left in gear whilst standing with the handbrake on?

If so, perhaps the clutch components and/or the brake calipers are the problem.

$. theres no 'gunk' in my diesel engines,just lucky i guess!

Again im finding myself defending good advice on this forum.Im starting to think its just attended by bad tempered old men who obviously have to anger to shed.

Again,do NOT fill an engine with diesel!!

If you want to see a taste of my expertise in this field,then just search my prior posts.Plenty of pictures to show i know exactly what im talking about with old engines!

Is it normal to try and push the car while it is in 5th gear?

Take cylinder head off. Put a wooden post in the cylinder and smack it with a hammer.

Then announce HGF and pretend nothing ever happened.
