    Hi would you say it is a louder diesel noise/rattle as i have had this problem on my 2.0 dti since january this year, i had my veccy into vauxhall and they advised to get the injector seals replaced, i got that done over a month ago and its still the same. Ive had no eml on, engine temp is fine etc, just get this noise under acceleration when driving. Im still trying to solve the problem.

    Ive been doing a bit of research on the net about this rattle noise. It could be the exhaust manifold cracked or the gasket knackered as mine had this loud diesel rattle under acceleration last year but only when cold, once i got half way to work it wasnt there. Since january this year the noise is there all the time at low revs under acceleration, in fact the noise has got louder. If i rev it when stationary, or drive it very steady the noise isnt there, only under load when driving, also i think there is a slight blowing when revving the engine when stationary. Anybody agree with this? Im hoping to get a garage to have a quick look on tuesday and hopefully pin point the problem to the exhaust manifold.

    Well im still none the wiser. Had my veccy into a exhaust garage today and they say the exhaust is in good condition. They took my car for a run so they could hear the loud diesel noise under acceleration, they said it is definatly engine noise and to try some fuel additive which ive been doing for a couple of months. Problem is im sure there is a blowing noise from the exhaust, near the front as even my wifey could hear it before i took our car to the garage but the garage couldnt hear it. I was thinking the cat part of the exhaust had broken down because of the blowing/raspy sound and the louder diesel noise which made sense to me as the noise has got louder over time. I guess i'll just have to put up with it.
