    confused back to stealers again today

    took my car back to main stealers again today so they could listen to my engine as im sure it is making a knocking noise at low revs, its a 19 cdti 150, the guy there explained that it is caused by the engine over fueling and that i should not worry as it is perfectly normal, is he trying to fob me off or is he right in what he saying, does anybody else have this problem

    erm, it shouldn't be overfuelling, except when stone cold..

    i've never known a car to be run rich at the idle..it's normally at it's leanest in that rpm range..

    mark is the engine in the face lift the same as the pre facelift, the guy at the garage told me they had change the engines after i told him that my last vec didnt sound like that. This knocking noise has only started since i had a new set of injectors fitted. Worst thing was they didnt have anybody who could take my car out for a test drive they toldl me i would have to book it in and take it back at alater date. i sometimes think they dont want to help you ver much.

    i'd take it elsewhere..and yes, the engine is mildly different, but not much..

    if it's still knocking after new injectors, then i'd be asking why they haven't solved the problem yet..it could be poor fuel pressure or even another failed injector ( not unknown even with brand new parts)..

    if they don't seem interested, try to find a better dealer, or ask VX customer services to kick the current one into action..
