    Default 1.8 Sounds a Bit Rough

    Basically - I have a 1.8 on an 2005 (05) Plate - and it is sounding rough - both on Idle and at Midrange RPM, its hard to describe - its like a really light chattering sound coming from (well - where we think its coming from) the Left side of the Engine - But I cant really pinpoint it.

    Going to take it into VX when I get a Chance because it is starting to make me wonder.....


    And no 'because its a 1.8' jokes lol

    Hmm... sounds like mine did back at Christmas, turned out to be the oil pump (check out my 1.8 Oil Pumps thread in the tech section).

    When you take it to the garage make sure you listen to it with the mechanic - preferably outside - and ask him to drop the auxiliary belts off and start it so its easier to hear where its from.
