Hi everyone, need some help pse.
I have a 1.8 ts old r reg 156
Got an issue with the rattle, however not sure if its variator or lifters.
On cold start engine smooth quiet.
When its warm tickover up to 800 rev the dreaded rattle.
Can variator be noisy only wen engine is warm, or can tappets rattle also?
Any advice please?

Check your oil isn't low.
If there isn't enough oil it won't get pumped to the variator.

I was sceptical about lifter treatments working on sticky lifters, but my car has been vastly improved by using one. Mine is a diesel but I see no reason why you might not have similar results with the 1.8 TS. Worth a try.
