    Default Ticking noise from engine... more so near the injectors

    Not a vectra problem but a MK4 Astra Coupe SE2 problem

    Z18XE standard engine no mods.

    We have a loud ticking thats coming from the injector/fuel rail area that increases its tempo when the RPM's rise, this has put the spanner light on. we switched it off and on again and now its put the EML on? and still sounds rough.

    Reving it up and switching of the ignition off and letting it stop to a halt the sound has gone so i believe it is not a valvetrain issue as normally associated with ticking.

    Has done it once before about a week ago but a quick on/off/on and it was sorted... now its taking the p!$$

    The car i think still has full power and is certainly not limited to revs at all.

    Help please....

    Ta Muchly

    also sorted the EML and emmisions light. unplugged the Lambda Sensor and reconnected and all is well now, cleaned the connections as they where a bit corroded too.
