    You missed my point, what size and year is it? I don't have the foggiest what the noise is (3 cylinders??!!) but would be useful info for the brainy ones.

    Possibly sounds like its banging back into the inlet manifold?
    Have you over revved it?

    It is firing on all 4? Any signs of smoke or excessive emmissions? Coolant loss? Mayonnaise in oil? Enough oil? Excessive fuel consumption?

    I know its some basic questions but sometimes a fresh train of thought helps.

    Sounds like the Dual Mass Flywheel to confirm, let engine idle, put car into neutral and bring the clutch to biting point, is there change in engine note? If so, I would say the DMF is on the road out.

    If it's not that then you may be reading into something that's not really there, EGR valve may be faulty or there is a fueling issue/not running on 4 cylinders but I doubt that, I would say EGR valve or DMF. If there really is anything.

    Could be the Glow plugs or EGR valve then.
