    Default Is it normal and am I being over concerned?

    Hi there,

    New on here, learning alot and enjoying the site!!

    I took my 1.9CDTi (150) back to the dealer I bought it from last week as I thought the engine seemed to be getting noiser than when I bought it.

    It seems to make what I can only descibe in petrol terms as a camshaft knocking when cold that quietens down after a while (when it warms up).

    When driving it at low revs it 'knocks' abit more.

    The mechanic came out with me and said that the 16v engines are noiser then the 8v and the low rev noise is 'diesel knock' as I'm loading the engine too much as I'm in a to high a gear. If I rev it more (2000-2200rpm rather than 1800-2000) it should stop doing it.

    The engine has only 12000 miles and I'm really happy with the car just want to make sure that it is me going mad and not the car playing up.

    Has anybody else had a similar experience?

    Thanks in advance

    Other members have posted similar to what you've said - can't for the life of me remember what the outcome/replies were. All I can suggest is doing a search for various phrases and see if the posts/threads pop up - they're definitely on the forum.
