    Default Rough Engine - advice please

    Guys your advice would be much appreciated:

    My 1.9cdti 150 has just passed its 3rd birthday and has done 42k. For the last couple of weeks, on cold start up (not every time but seems fairly regular) the engine sounds like a box of spanners.

    This is when I have the clutch fully down and the car is stationary. I am getting a concerning rough, rattling noise from the engine. This noise disappears when in gear and goes after a couple of minutes driving.

    I have no clue what this is and would really appreciate your help on what this might be before I go to Vauxhall about this, as I was hoping anything major would have been picked up on the pre 3 year birthday warranty check they did for me a month ago.


    Thanks
    Paul

    Taking it out this afternoon and the dreaded shake through the clutch is there. So what are my chances of vauxhall footing the bill for a DMF since it only turned 3 yrs old two weeks ago?

    if the car has less than 100k on it and has full dealer history, then the chances are good, get down to the dealers and have them try for a sympathetic warranty claim. I do know that if the warranty guy at the dealer actually calls VX and logs a case, usually they do something, even if its 50% of the cost.
