    Default Insignia rattling upon cold start

    Hi all!
    I am new here and here is my problem:
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG-tXO7nEYU"]Noise 26022012.mp4 - YouTube[/ame]
    Tried to find discussions in the forum, but nothing find about Insignia.
    Thanks ahead for directing me to right place on this forum.
    --------------------
    Concerning the issue:
    On different forums there are two main opinions: or VVT or chain.
    IMHO it is VVT, because in 99% the noise appears upon COLD start-up.
    How it is built? What is a reason? What parts are knocking? How danger is it? How to resolve this problem?
    Our local Opel representative says that it is absolutely normal.
    For me it is hard to believe.
    Can anybody help?
    Thanks ahead.
    NB. It is about A2.0NHT Turbo engine on Edition 2011, 10 KKm.
    PS. it makes me crazy...

    It could be your chain/tensioner mate. Is the 2.0T a VVT on the Insignia? If so check your oil levels as well, the VVT needs to be kept topped right up with oil.

    Yes what engine is it? the 2.0T, I didn't think was a VVT... could be wrong though.

    Either way the cam phasers/actuators/motors whatever that are called this week. Starved of oil normally on the VVT.

    Thank you, rushy for prompt reply!
    If it is chain-why the noise almost not appears the engine is hot? what the difference for chain "to scream" when hot?
    Yes, it is 2.0 Turbo engine (sorry-I edited it ), topped with oil up to upper mark.

    Surely this car is under warranty, 2011 and low mileage
    Lois Griffin: Peter! You're bribing your daughter with a car?
    Peter Griffin: Ah, c'mon, Lois, isn't 'bribe' just another word for 'love'?

    Sure! But what can I do when they say "it's ok, you may continue to drive"?
