    Default Engine rattle

    I have the 1.9 150 & it has just started to rattle. Easiest way to hear the rattle is when the car is stood still and the accelerator is pressed then released. It rattles mainly when the revs drop back down to idle, it doesn’t matter whether the clutch is pressed or not

    Any help would be great

    Cheers

    A local garage fitted it that has done a fair amount of work on it. I have no idea about the cambelt kit as my knowledge of engines is limited

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 8v

    Year : 55

    Mileage : 92,000

    Default

    Don't know if "Diesel Knock" has ever been an issue with the 16v engines????

    Mine is a little similar (mines an 8v though) but is starting to rattle more and more and sound like a Massey Ferguson. Its had an oil change about 1000 miles ago (using GM Dexos oil) and had the MOT done last week.

    Got chatting with the mechanic and I suggested it sounded like valve shims/tappets (on the 8v only, 16v has hydraulic lifter I believe). Mechanic said it sounded more like Diesel Knock causing the engine to shake/rattle more

    So for me it sounds like it could be injector related or pump related.

    Good luck getting to the bottom of it

    Small ends ?

    Have a listen to this and is it similar, (I know its a different engine but the symptom might be the same).
