Re: engine trouble

Hi ,I thought I shouldn't open a new topik as I have a similar issue(I hope Kmky does not mind) ...when I'm running at 2000-2500 rpm and press the acceleration hard I hear a ticking till it gets to about 3000 rpm but is an annoying sound...I believe it may be the variataor as it does the diesel sound for about 3-4 months now on start-up and is due to be changed in December along with the cambelt. But I aslo have another annoying sound when starting the car like a scueak for 1-2 second(I think I need to change somethin in the electromotor), but I don't think these 2 are related...
Hope you can give me a hand here...Thanks!

Re: engine trouble

no i dont mind allex, hope you get your problem fixed asap my friend ,

my problem dates back to a misfire i had last month which i thought had been fixed when all the coils got cleaned and all the plug sockets got cleaned from the oil that had leaked in there, but the motor control system failure warning has surfaced again, the exhaust rough sound/blowing sound seems to be far worse on start up in a morning , when its been run for a while the sound eases slightly , im hoping its mothing too serious ,
