Re: excessive fuel consumption on 147 1.6
but what if he got the car fully serviced 6 months ago and did the cambelt? nothing else would need doing!
similar thing happened to me, the week after i had the cambelt done the dreaded rattle started, it hardly happens but it does every once in a while so i know it needs doing, only i will never do another 36k in the 3 years so will have to wait another 2 years before i fork up for the cam and variator.
it is rubbish especially when a girl gets in and says 'wow your car is gorgeous!' and then it rattles like mad for 2 seconds on start up!
