    My late F.I.L was so bad he crashed into parked cars and once "lost" his car because his Parkinson's & Alzheimer's was so bad he had no idea where he had left it. Was so very angry when it was taken away from him. He used to be brought back home...

    Does sound like some form of oil starvation, I assume your oil filter is of decent quality incorporating a non-return valve & you are using the correct grade of oil? As for the damage(?) question, metal components coming into contact with each...

    P38A 4.6 THOR - Noisy till warmed up thoroughly.
