156 wonít start
« on: January 07, 2019, 03:36:50 AM »
Hi, I have a 156 ts that will not start. I was travelling along a freeway when my exhaust suddenly got a lot louder. I pulled into a service station and before I switched the motor off, it sounded like Iíd lost a muffler. I turned the motor and tried to locate the issue. When I tried to start the engine, it turned over but would not start. Later after doing some research, I removed the exhaust system excluding the last muffler at rear of car. Upon inspection, I could see right through the catalytic converter as there was nothing inside it. Is that normal?
I replaced the exhaust system and still no joy. Any idea as that was the extent of my mechanical knowledge

When you crank the car, does the tachometer needle move?
