Someone else with a rattling engine!
Looking for some advice on my little rattle? Its coming from the engine, it happens when feathering the throttle in the lower rev range, say between 2000 and 4000. A sort of metallic rattle. Also when I floor it I`m sure the engine sounds somewhat "loose".? I don`t think its the variator as I don`t get the start up diesel sound.
I check the oil regularly and no issues there. Also seems less prevelant when engine is cold but I dont tend to rev it much until engine has warmed up. No other problems, engine pulls fine withut any flat spots and apart from the rattle it sounds good.
The car is a 2001 Y reg. It will be due a cambelt service fairly soon and I dont think the variator has been change in the cars history.
I would like to identify this before it goes in for the Cambelt service so I can get it looked at at the same time.
Thanks in advance....
