    Default Norwich!!!Mechanic minded person wanted to help iron out my worrying mind

    Anyone here from Norwich who knows a bit about Vectras and is a dab hand. Would pay obviously but don't want to pay garage prices. Got a noise on start up. Slight rattle or clatter for a few seconds then stops then comes back then stops until warm. Have fears of dmf but in another thread people are saying head shields. Mesh. Spring. F if I know. I got basics but this ain't basic for me lol. Just want a fellow vectra fan to ease my mind as I really love the car and always had Vectras but after what people are saying and what I read on horror stories I'm debating on getting shot and going for another brand

    Is it a tap?

    It'll be the oil circulating, most do it for a few seconds when started until the oil gets thrown around.

    My cdti has a constant ticking at the moment, im praying its not injectors.


    EDIT: You think it's DMF? Press the clutch.. if the noise comes/goes with the clutch pedal that answers your question, I highly doubt it's that!

    It's more a vibrating clatter. Only lasts a few seconds. Then a few second pause then again. Iv watched a few videos on YouTube about vectra dmf and it sounds similar but its hard to tell as there's is completely screwed. Just don't want a big bill as its still got a months warranty but I know the dealer will say yeah checked it. It's fine

    does the noise sound like something being rubbed across corrugated cardboard?
