I have been suffering a top end type noise on my 1.9 diesel for a week or so.

Is the 1.98 diesel 16v engine particularly loud especially the top end noises.

I have made a recording using my phone but cant upload it.

Any one else any experience of loud top end noises from their car? Is this normal?

Thanks

Frank

Top end noises? Like the tappets in a cheap Ford from the 1960s?
