    Default Intermittent rattle on idle???????????????

    AFTER READING A FEW POSTS ON HERE IM SLIGHTLY WORRIED LOL

    1.9 CDTI 150BHP ENGINE
    on idle theres a intermittent rattling sound. easiest way to explain is it seems the engine has 2 tones. for 2-3 seconds it ticks over then the next 2-3 seconds it ticks over and rattles like somethings loose, does this when cold. not noticed when warm but cant rule it out. its under warrenty by one month and dont want to ignore it to be something majorly expensive

    the car has done 72,000 miles

    please help

    I had an issue with the coolant expansion bottle being a little loose for a while, causing a rattle noise, it was louder in the car than out. Have you tried to listen under the bonnet?

    If its the DMF it should be louder from around the passenger side wheel arch.

    Sounds like DMF, when they first start to go they do it intermittent when cold, but don't appear to when warm.

    Best way to check have the foot on clutch when cold and see if it stops, if it does, its the DMF.
