    Default 2.2 with a rattle

    Hi all my 2.2 non direct has started to give a rattle noise when started up, lasts for about 3 seconds then stops. Any ideas?? Thought it might be the chain.

    Thanks in advanced

    Promise you its the chain and perhaps tensioner.

    Through Vauxhall you're probably looking at £800/£900 to resolve.

    My 2.2 does exactly the same thing every so often. Been doing it for yonks now.

    Wasn't that much when Vx changed my chain. And I then got a 70% goodwill gesture because the tensioner was faulty, but they also wanted to change the chain to be on the safe side.

    I've been to my dealers (Platinum Vauxhall in Trowbridge) and thats what they said to me.

    They said keep an eye on it and if it gets any worse go back. Thats was at least 2 yrs ago. Sometimes it does sometimes it dont rattle but thats why they probably did yours due to the fact it was doing it whilst it was within it's warranty.

    Mine wasn't. Still will keep an eye on it like always and if it gets worse, bye bye car because wont be worth getting if fixed.

    It's a know issue with the tensioner which is why Vauxhall have a field remedy recommending changing it to the one they fit in the 2.0 turbo engines in the event of failure. I don't know the field remedy number offhand, but if you can find it, then it might be worth reporting back to them about it. Sounds like they're just covering up.

    Not saying it's not the chain, but if there's an issue with the tensioner/pulley (Common problem on the 2.0T which has the same chain drive)

    Part numbers are in THIS THREAD(last post)
