1.9JTDM Clatter and whines.....

Hi
My 159 has been sounding a bit clattery of late (done 32k) and is noticeably more noisy inside the car especially when cold or at low revs, I read on Cloverleaf site there had been an issue with this which some people had had fixed under warranty, my cloverleaf memebrship does not seem to work anymore so cant get to the thread!

Anyone else know of any issues with over clattery engines? Sounds like my dads old petrol Astra did when it needed a new cam.... or am i just listening too hard.

Have had other issues with engine of late, hesitation on light throttle, limp 2x, dpf blockage 3-4 times

Oh and also got this whine noise when at idle which disappears when you apply some throttle too, this seems to be getting louder or again is it just me hearing it now?

I think (and ive had many sleepless nights since first post as a result of small children!) the whine noise was the fuel line issue that seems to raise its head occasionally on the forum although not had it for ages.... i just moved a few fuel pipes around near the bulkhead and around the filter and that used to stop it for a bit but like i say i havent had it for ages.....
