    Question help if u can folks

    Was at the girl friends the other night there was quite frost. I turned my car over and the spanner light has come on(amber). Over the past few weeks or so i have noticed the engine sounding a bit louder than usual and doesnt sound as smooth on tickover there is a small rattle, but once the engine is warm it doesnt seem any different to when i first got it.

    Anybody any ideas b4 i go to see the mechanic??

    Cheers Brian
