TS Down on power???
I am wondering if my 2.0 8v TS is a bit down on power at the moment. The car starts and runs absolutly A1 but I just dont think it has as much get up and go as once it had. If you put your foot down approx 1/3 to 1/2 way down on throttle it doesnt pick up very well it does go ok and builds up steadily enough to a good speed just no with alot of urgency. I have read a little into cam variators (possabily at fault I wonder??) I would also say the top end is a little tappy maybe the valve clearences are all wrong? Also does the engine have hydrolic timing chain tensioner??? I only ask as when cold there is a bit of a rattle coming from that side of the engine, if not might be a/c pump or something else???
Sorry so many questions just like to get as much imput as poss. Thanks
