Worrying Engine Noise - Any Ideas?
For the last couple of weeks or so now my car (2.4 diesel 210bhp) has been making a strange engine noise which is slowly getting worse and is causing me some concern.
The only way I can describe it is a high pitched metallic whine/whistle that sounds very much like either a circular saw doing what it does or a large jet aircraft stood with its engines at idle.
And, before anyone tells me that it's turbo whistle, it is not turbo whistle (unless the turbo has recently developed a defect).
This noise can be a constant through heavy engine load, over-run, idle, ambling along at low rev's etc. and sometimes can be heard, sometimes not.
Any ideas anyone, other than to take it to a dealer to get it checked out?
If it appreciates, buy it. If it depreciates, lease it.
