    Default Could be the dreaded timing chain 2.2 direct

    Been on earlier this week after 4th service 64k all at same main delear.
    They said water pump making a slight noise.
    Over the month i have heard a bit of chatter on cold start up but only for a few seconds, so i thought after service new oil and filter all would be quiet.
    Anyway it been alright for a few days but this morning it was quiet on start up but after a few hundred yards i had to stop and lift the bonnet.
    The noise didnt sound like chain noise but as if the top end had no oil getting to it. After a couple of miles all quiet and nice and smooth for the rest of the day.
    Been to the dealers they said we need to hear it first thing in the morning, said could be the chain, but the noise is more of a banging noise, any advice please.
