    Default Strange rattle from engine.

    Right here goes. I own a 52 reg veccy c 2.0 dti. Ive had the car for about a year, when first started and driving steady my car sounds ok, if i give it a bit more revs then there is a louder rattle, my car has done this since ive owned it, once run for a while the rattle goes. Over the last couple of days the rattle is always there cold and hot engine at low revs 2000 -3000 revs approx. If driven gently the rattle isnt there but is with a bit more power. My car when stationary will rev fine at all revs, no rattles, but under load the rattle appears. One thing i have noticed the miles per gallon have dropped over the past month, i was getting 43 to 44 mpg over the year ive owned the car it has now dropped to 41 mpg so there seems to be a problem somewhere. There is no engine management light on, temperature is fine, starts fine and accelerates well. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    if it is clutch related, then it is time to get a bank loan.

    Dual mass fly-wheel and clutch replacement may be looming ahead.

    Well i put my veccy into vauxhall on wednesday. They took it for a drive, put it on tech 2 (had no engine management light on), Been informed to have a pressure test done on the injectors. I was going to get the injector seals replaced but the garage where i get a few jobs done said would be better to replace the injectors, would this be right? Also i rang vauxhall for a price on the front coil spring insulators, they said they should go on the top and not the bottom, any help would be appreciated.

    Right ive just priced up the injectors £100 + each. Im sure its not the injectors themselves as ive read some of the forums with the problem of rough starting sometimes etc. Leakoff pipes were done last year, car has done 140,000 miles, once started it runs fine with good acceleration so as said in the forums injector seals need replacing i think. I rang vauxhall and they said there are 3 seals, does anyone know which seal i would need, vauxhall said it probably would be the bottom one? quoted £1.33 each.
