    Default VVt rattle on sartupt

    I have had the dreaded rattle on startup for a few months. Taken filters off cam solenoids to no avail.
    However, on saturday before changing oil and filter i added Forte engine flush and ran on idle for 30 mins. Since then engine has started with no rattle at all. Will keep you posted.

    I still have a rattle on startup even though I have replaced the solenoids. I also did an engine flush then oil change prior to changing the solenoids.

    Keep us posted, this seems to be the only recogniseable fault coming to light with the VVTi.

    Yeh will do mate.
    I'm thinking possibly sticking non return valve in oil pump maybe.
    Bought the car with 27k full VXSH i've added 17k and just done 4th oil change so its not gunged up.
    Wish i had an old engine to strip and inspect to see oilways etc
