Iv started hearing a very slight ticking noise from the engine. Very much like tappets. I can liken it to an old fiesta engine noise! i.e. very tappety! but its only slight,on acceleration at any speed. It had the belts done 1yr ago and tensioners. But i don't think the variator was done,no receipts for it anyway.
When i say slight,i can't really hear it if i rev her up,you can hear it going along when you catch the engine note,like going past hedges or houses and the sound rebounds back. If that makes sense!!!
only had her a week or so so i don't know about the recent service,no docs proving it. she's stamped in the book but this was 2yrs ago!she must of had fresh oil last year with cam belt right?when i got her the oil was real low so she's just had 2 litres of fresh stuff!!
Probably not. Cambelt has nothing to do with a service. Very low oil is a bad sign. Get it serviced and hoepfully it will go away but the tick could turn into a knock which is big ends and massive expence time. These engines can't be run low on oil. Hope it's not and fresh oil and filter does the trick
Can start as a tick and progress to a knock. But lots of other options first. Yes you can add a video but it has to be through a url linked in. If you press go advanced on the option below the post window you get a youtube icon in the header next to all the normal B, italics etc.
ok here we go. as i said,very bad video sorry! and you might not hear much until 20seconds of the 30second video!! but it should give an idea. revving was up to around 4k revs max and she was only just warm,not up to normal temp as i had left it for a bit.
