    Default Engine noise

    Hi, anyone able to shed some light on my problem? My car is a 1.8sri 2007 with 55 000 miles and has a knocking noise coming from around the timing belt side of the engine, the noise is quite noticeable and "knocks" around twice a second at idle. Still original timing belt and looks ok. Any advice is greatly appreciated, Darren.

    Auxiliary belt tensioner could be the cause,or the water pump.
