Rattlesnake GTV ?
My V6 GTV has developed another problem.
There is this very loud rattle/screeching noise coming from the engine bay when the car is idlying. The air con is ON. Turn the air con OFF and it goes away.
It sounds up again when you try to move off i.e. 1st and 2nd gear (air con OFF) but disappears once above 25mph or so. Everything sounds normal then
History: Car bottomed out on a bad patch of road. Assumed damage was just to the exhaust (front section). Early warning sounds were a tapping from the engine at 3000 rpm (stationary). However it did 400 miles before the rattlesnake kicked in.
Sounds like maybe a cracked Air Con unit but why would this sound up when moving off?
I am stumped. Any idea folks
All comments welcome.
