    Default engine rattle on 150 cdti

    hi all,
    i bought a 05 150 sri cdti with 79k yesterday. today my misses picked the kids up from school and when she got onto our road she could hear a loud rattle. she described it like the sound of a bike chain coming off.
    it got louder and she said it cut out outside our house. when i got back from work i visual check from the top and everything seemed ok. i checked the cambelt and thats fine. i decieded to see if it would start which it did, but when i started to rev it it rattled like hell. it doesnt sound like a big end noise, could be possibly a rocker snaped or the turbo?????

    I had a really loud rattle come from my 2.2dti out of the blue a month or two ago it didnt reduce power as far as I could tell although I did limp home, I took it to my mechanic and hey presto a broken cam follower in 3 bits sat in an oil outlet. A 12 quid part, some fiddling to get all the pieces out and an oil and filter change later and my engine is back to normal. Hopefully it will be just that for you I believe they can go if the engine is rev'd from cold. fingers crossed for you.

    take it back to the supplying garage by law any second hand car bought from any dealer has to come with at least a months warranty, if it was a private sale and it doesn't say sold as seen on the receipt take it back and get them to fix it or request your money back. either way you shouldn't have to pay to get it sorted seeing as you've only had the car a day.

    had this on mine post DMF / clutch

    loose bolts somewhere underneath

    I guess they just needed tightening. anyway 10 mins on ramp with torque wrench and it was back to normal

    take it back and check the simple thing first before going into greater mechanical depth

    lets hope its that and nothing more serious

    just took the car round block to see if i could find the problem and it did the dreded noise halfway down the road. i turned it off straight away and tryed to start it back up 5 mins later and the engine would not turn over. i left it a minute later and it started, i got it back home and noticed that gear oil was all over the floor.
    does this sound like the dmf?????
