159 1,9 JTDm 2008 engine noise

I need some advise/help before buying such a car. Milage is very High, 330.000km (approx 200.000 miles). All service ok. Gear Box Sound ok. I knowhow it need new clutch, and therefore maybe also flywheel. It also need waterpump and timing belt. I have Price for this repair so therefore This is in calculation. BUT i have heard 2 Strange noises. a Tikking in idle speed, and a kind of raddle noise at approach 3000rpm (only motor, not driving) i Think Best Way to explain the Sound is that it could Sound as a piston rod bearing. Is there anybody that has somme ideal. Please also inputs to mileage and Any expirince coupe helår me deside buy or not. Thanks

I get the ticking noise at idle, only covered 16,500 miles. Hoping it will be resolved with a cambelt change, but need to get it looked at properly. If I use the accelerator to put the idle up to 800 rpm (rather than 750rpm) it goes, so wonder if getting the idle speed slightly increased is a solution. Will be in for a service early Jan before warranty expires.
