Strange noise on overrun
CF1 2.0 TS 16v in a 145 Cloverleaf
Engine is well maintained, regular oil checks/top ups, new plugs every year. Equipped with half decent panel filter, Alfatune exhaust system and Alfatune remap running 170bhp
When the engine has been warmed up, it pulls very strongly but when slowing down or when the revs are falling from mid range to tickover, it makes a strange rattly/ticky/grinding noise around the 2500-2000rpm mark. Doesn't do it under power or holding the revs steady, only when the revs are falling. It is due a full belt change soon but this noise sounds like its coming from the passenger side, or certainly to the left of the drivers side, could be a central noise.
It is definitely engine related, nothing to do with gearbox (that i know of) as it does it when either driving along, in any gear, or when stood still.
Any thoughts guys? If it needs a new clutch and/or flywheel, sod it. Its getting ripped out and replaced with a 20v turbo from a Fiat Coupe!
