Help. My 1476 JTD is making a flapping noise after 1500rpm
Hello Guys, this is my first post, I hope someone can help me..
I have a 2003 147 JTD. I love the car, however its developed a noise over 1500 Rpm.
Its hard to describe and i may need ot get a video, its like a flapping noise, but could also sound like a blow in the exhaust/intercooler pipe.
I found a hole in the lower intercooler pipe, i replaced this with a silicone replacement however the noise is still there.
Does anyone know what noise a failed swirlflap would make? in the inlet /engine?
Also ive heard the tensioner is prone to fail on these engines, so could be the belt flapping?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Tomorrow I'm going to look at the belt with covers off and may take the inlet off to check.
The noise is amplified by the intercooler under the car.
