156 2003 2.4 jtd 'ticking' problem
Had a look through old posts but nothing quite matches my problem!
I have a 2003 2.4 jtd which when idling is fine and also when driving steady on a flat road or down hill it is fine but when you push on the gas harder through the gears or when the engine is under load up a hill you get a ticking noise which runs in rythem with the engine.
It sounds very much like a metallic tappety noise and have tried various products said to help this but to no success.
As soon as you pull over and lift the bonnet to listen and try and pinpoint the soucre it goes quiet again!.very frustrating indeed!!
The car has done 162000 and has had recent timing kits done etc and also aux tensioner has just been replaced.
Can anyone help??
