    Default Rattle on acceleration....

    Noticed when I power on there's a slight rattling sound that seems to come from the engine. (I always instantly look at the gearbox). Anyone had this before?

    Mark, could this possibly be an early warning sign that the cambelt needs done? (Other post on belts)....

    The noise is very low and does'nt effect the speed level.

    I'm getting a rattle from my gear stick when accelerating hard in 3rd, 4th and sometimes 5th. Its getting gradually worse.
    Anybody got any ideas?

    There was a post on here not so long ago about an exhaust coupling that started rattling at around 2500rpm could it be that??

    Thanks but its definately coming through the gearbox. checked heat shield and its fine.
    Heard that the gear selector is a common fault on the corsa c 1.2s. Could it be that? im sure vx's are all built using similar components.

    Hope it aint to much of a problem, moving to germany in two weeks!
