    hi just a quick question does your vvt sound quite rough in the cold as soon as it starts up for a couple of seconds?

    Try taking the filters off, they may be gummed up. I did a How 2. Also when was the last time it had an oil change?

    Mine sounds horrid now on start up. Like someone with a bucket of sockets shaking it next to me.Going to have an oil change end of the month. That normaly helps for a while. Im on 92k now so i may go for a thicker oil unless someone thinks its a bad idea. Oh i dont use a lot of oil. Needs a slight top up each 3 months roughly
