Re: Noisey Variator
My 2001 156 TS makes a diesel noise on a very cold start up for anywhere between 3 and 5 seconds... Its has never done it for longer, and it stops almost instantly if i blip the throttle a tiny bit.
I had the oil and filter changed about a month ago, which didnt seem to make a difference, since I covered 6k miles and almost let it run dry... After topping her up (3 litres ish!!) it improved a bit... but still happens on cold startups for a few secs.
Performance hasnt been effected, nor has economy, should I do anything about it? Or keep an ear out and see if it gets worse?
Is it causeing, or going to cause any damage? :-S
Dispite the cost of living now-a-days, have you noticed how it still remains so popular?
