JTD - Loud click/ping from engine bay during low speed manouveuring.
I have noticed a very loud click/ping (almost sounds as if something metallic has just sheared each time) coming from the engine bay when undertaking very low speed manouvering/parking/after a second or two following coming to a stop.
Not sure whether I should mention this as it might unnecessarily link the two together but the car is also lacking in low down power but at the moment I have put this down to a split MAF to Turbo pipe.
I havent had a good look as I'm always in the car when it happens and havent had a helper to rev the car with my head in the engine bay.
Im going to take a look at the VNT actuator but any ideas what this very loud metallic click/pining might be?
Need an Alfa! Cheap, cheap! Pref something older that needs a little work!
