    Default Guess the problem.

    hi guys,well after 2 whole weeks of ownership my 2007 cdti 120 has suffered it`s first problem so it has gone back to the stealers to be looked at.
    symptoms are-

    1.quite a loud metallic tapping noise when it`s very cold on first start up but goes within minutes or if it is above freezing you dont hear it !.
    2.squeaking noise on first start up but goes once engine warms up.
    3.lights (headlights and dash/interior) seem to pulse when engine is ticking over.
    4.and lastly but has just started today there is a constant whining noise that gets louder as the revs rise.

    there has been no warning lights appear but items 1-3 have been there since just after i bought it but dismissed it as nothing to worry about but the whining has worried me enough to get it looked at.

    they wont be able to look at it till Monday so i am reduced to a 2006 nissan almera courtesy car but on the brighter side it`s still under warranty so wont cost me a bean.

    so any ideas chaps?.

    thanks.
