New to 146's and need some help please!
My wife's 146 1995 1.6l manual, is starting to make some noises that I am not to happy about.
The engine sounds ok on cold start but when one rev'sand let the rpm's die down one can hear a metalic clunking as it drops to idle. Once the engine warms up this sound becomes more obvious and starts to appear as the engine is being reved or driven a 1200+ rpm but again the noise disappears if the rpm are held constant or the engine drops back to idle!!
The sound appears to come from the back of the engine but not the gear box. This noise happens with the clutch in or out while in gear or not, so I don't think its the gearbox.
Any idea's please. variator? Main bearings? Realese bearing for the clutch?
Many thanks in advance!!
