    Default SRi Turbo- (04) Pinking sound at low revs

    Hi all just joined having acquired a nice 70K mile Sri Turbo. Has been fully serviced etc and drives well. Thing is- it is missing slightly at low revs when on tick-over and although probably not related, when under torque at low speeds- ie. pulling away at say 10mph in say- 2nd gear, the engine has a vibrating/light clattering sound which seem to come from the drivers side of the engine (from inside). Had about 20 Vauxhalls and I know they can 'pink' but this sounds a bit harsher. Any ideas? Cheers. Ian (W.Sussex)

    Sounds like it could be chain chatter? don't know wether or not this would cause a performance problem though?

    Its a 2.0 Turbo Petrol with 77K on the clock. Timing chain was my immediate thought. Would this cause mild hunting on tick-over as well? Is it a big job to replace? Guy I bought it from let it go for a cheap price so it's got me wondering. Otherwise car is great.
