    Default cdti engine

    hi peeps,

    Though i would tap into the knowledge held here!

    I have 1.9 150 04 plate. I know the engines are not the quitest but on hard accerlation i have what can only be desribed as tappet noise. tick, tick tick, the sound gets quicker as i do! all so after a while sitting still with engine off (+4 hrs) i can get the noise whilst going along slowly..

    Any advise or expenrence of this problem?

    many thanks...

    May sound daft but have you's checked the oil level. It may be needing topped up

    Yep, all the so called "basics" have been done. Even had the hose pipe out to locate the noise but since the whole drive train is noisy it was difficult to locate. Saying that i can only notice the tapping sound when driving with the window down...

    Dunno then mate a few of my work mates have commented on my engine sounding rattley but that's usually after a i've just started it up.Will be interested to know what dealer says.

    Just out of curiosity have you checked your tyres.There could be a stone or screw stuck in one of them causing the tapping sound.Obviously if it taps when standing still then its not that but worth bringing up.(i also had a tapping once from the front drivers wheel and it was 2 stones stuck in between the disc and the metal cover behind the disc)
