Idea Noisy Engine

Can anyone help me - I have a 147 Lusso 54 plate. In Sept the cambelt went - and 1000 later, was fixed (grrr). My problem is that now the engine seems very noisy. Is there a solution such as an oil supplement that could help?? Any suggestions gratefully received... thanks

Re: Noisy Engine

pretty much all the time. Some days are worse than others - some days it sounds like a diesel!

Re: Noisy Engine

Not sure I can help with the noise as I've never had a TS, but one thing is for sure - the noise is due to an underlying problem and an additive of any sort is not the solution.

Do you have the correct oil grade?

Others will be along with more suggestions like "bottom end", "variator", "valve clearances" but without direct experience, I'd not want to venture an opinion.

No help, I know!
