    Exclamation **urgent help required**

    Hiya, i have a 2003 vectra z22se 2.2 sri with 57000 miles. I bought it recently and the timing chain had been replaced etc.

    My problem/concern is this. A couple of times now when travelling the car starts making a train like chug chug chug type sound, as though one of the tyres is flat type noise. It is really loud both inside and outside the car, but only when moving. I have brought the car to a stop and No noise. Started moving and the noise comes back. Turn the ignition/engine off, restart and move off- no noise?

    Oil all at correct levels. No noise i can hear from timing chain area and the noise is not all the time,, i am worried i have bought a pig and there is something seriously wrong.

    Any help/advise would be gratefully appreciated before handing it to the stealers.

    Thanks

    Without hearing it its pretty much impossible to say for certain, all we could do is guess, best bet would be take it to the garage for a proper diagnosis (independant tho not stealers, they'll try to charge you for an engine rebuild when it could be a cheap fix).

    i should have mentioned that the car felt bouncy/jerky as if going up and down at the front.

    The thing that is getting me is that it sounds like a wheel bearing but that would be there even if you turned the ignition off and on a hundred times, and the fact that it goes away when you restart points to an engine issue, have you got any warning lights on the dash?
