noisy engine and sloppy gear stick!
just purchased a 147 1.6ts at the weekend and it has a few issues.
First is the diesel sounding petrol engine- i'm guessing form reading elsewhere that it's the variator or camshaft.....
secondly the sloppy gear change, there is a lot of movement at the gear stick, even when in any gear. The movement is in all directions back- forward - left - right and up - down.
is this down to the gear linkage bushes in the engine bay or could it be at the gear stick itself?
Also, having had a good look around the engine bay at the bulk head there are only three cables disappearing under the outer rocker cover from left to right I have BLUE - BLACK - WHITE and then there is an empty cradle where I think there should be a BROWN connector block, but no! Any thoughts?
Many thanks in anticipation for all your help.
