Maybe its nothing...
I could just be being paranoid about nothing, and i hope i am, but my engine seems to be a little loose. Let me try and explain what i mean.
The revs are all there, but it doesnt sound like it used to. The exhaust note is a little muffled, there is a slight whir coming from somewhere unexplained. The top of the engine sounds just a tad rough and on idle it pinks slightly. Like i said, the revs are all there and as far as i can tell it hasn't lost any power.
On cold mornings there seems to be a slight rattle from underneath somewhere but it goes when the engine gets some heat into it. It also does the fabled diesel like noise sometimes its started, but i am putting that down to the variator. Err, i think that's it for the time being.
Oh, one last thing. My belts were changed in March, now the variator has gone (or going) will the car be okay for another 27,000 miles before they are done again?
Thanks in advance
