The engine goes "ts-ts-ts-ts" apart from the usual diesel clatter at idle, when it is cold. Something malign...?

Ah I thought only mine did that, a pulsing sound in my case " ffhut - ffhut - ffhut " only when cold most noticeable when standing offside by drivers door behind front wheel or if bonnet open coming from area down between air intake resonator box and drive belts on side of engine. Has a frequency of about 2 x ffuts per second at idle. Had thought it might be a fouling belt or a dodgy water pump.

Anyother ideas????

Me too, on the 1.9 JTDm. Any idea what's behind the driver's side lights, and behind the front bumper. Something induction related?
