maybe not flywheel maybe n/s driveshaft? but a strange noise as well?
Took the car to my mechanic today before the dealer has a look at it next week and seems like the n/s driveshaft has alot of play in it so they will hopefully sort that! A dmf failure would be shown via noise when the clutch is depressed on on idle is that right?
But ive also noticed a strange hissing/ticking sound at idle that seems to come and go every 10 seconds or so..
10 secs of ticking - 3 secs of no ticking - 10 secs of ticking etc
Is this normal as it doesnt sound normal sounds really loud in fact, not a knocking noise but almost sounds like an injector noise? The car has been sat a while so wonder if the injectors need a good cleaner run through them. My thermostat also doesnt read correctly, i.e sits at 90 but takes an age to get to 90, then all of a sudden drops to 70ish. They will sort this but would this cause any noise on idle?
Any ideas that i could take to the dealer with me?
