2.0JTS slight tapping sound
I have just upgraded from a 1.8 156 to a 2.0 GT complete with 18"s
One slight problem I've noticed is that there's a faint rattle coming from the engine - This is only noticable with the window down at certain rev ranges.
I don't want to panic without just cause but I would be gratefull if someone could provide an insight on the JTS engine currently I'm thinking it could be that:-
1. It's been run without oil in the past and is shafted.
2. The JTS engine rattles anyway and I'm being neurotic - (I was told that they rattles by a specialist of course it could turn out that he's a bit SPECIAL)
3. The ratling is due to the variable value belt thingybob and although it will need replacing it's not that major
Any help / comments / thoughts would be apreicated - I dont really want to have to return the car but if I find out it's shafted then I'll have to do just that.
Note the tapping is only faint but I guess it could progress.
