Re: 166 sounds like a diesel
I had a look as suggested, ps thanks for all your feedback!
Right, it doesn't sound hugely bad! I can here it on tickover, when i rev it 1k to 2k revs, sometimes at 60 when i put my foot down (more like a grinding noise at this point, but a soft one)...
But it does sound like it could be something to do with the clutch!!! When I stick my head under the car, near the front passenger wheel, i look up and there is this alu metal block. I think the gear box is above and behind this part. I belive the sound is coming from there.
The service history is mint, everything has been done apart from the water pump......eeeeek!!!! If it was a tensioner the noise will be coming from the otherside....which suites me fine!
Does that help..............
