Help Dont Laugh

This might seem a bit strange but here goes, I have just had my cambelt and various parts changed by main dealer, but I have notice since, that the engine note has changed since having this work carried out.
The car goes fine no problem.

Is it me or could there be something not quite right here.

Told you it was strange.

Re: Dont Laugh

When mine was done I noticed the engine note had changed. It was quite obvious as the loud, high pitch whine had vanished. The exhaust note had hardened a little too. I think I was so pre-occupied with the noise from the belts whining before!

Anyways, as long as it is producing a similar power level and is of a similar thirst it will be fine.


PS I've found that post service, engines sound a bit different for a while until all the new bits and pieces get covered in filth and dirt and the oil thickens slightly
