2.0 TS grinding noise
OK ... so I have just spent a whole day working on the car, and thought everything would be sweet ... but NO ... more problems.
When driving the car, there is a grinding sound coming from somewhere ... but this only happens when under 3,000rpm ... and doesn't matter what gear it's in. The sound is kind of like a metal pipe being dragged along the ground.
Now, I have checked everything that I can think of:
1. All interior panels secure and not rattling
2. Exhaust heat shield not moving but have bent further away from exhaust just in case
3. Coolant and engine oil topped up
Any ideas for other things to look out for would be appreciated.
Also, how do I check the gear-box oil??
