    Default Bad sound from the Engine

    What a day this is turning out to be. I have a sound coming from the engine, sounds central and close to the dash if that makes sense.

    It's a rattling sound, like something is loose. It doesn't do it when the my foot is on the accelorator (how do you spell that? lol), but when I'm moving but take my foot off the gas, like approaching a junction or something, the rattle comes on - quite loud too.

    Any ideas? Not really looking to touch is myself, it only has 100 miles on the clock so no excuse for VX not to look at it, but out of interest any suggestions?

    Is Vauxhall likely to be open tomorrow?

    Not your day is it?

    I doubt you'll get any joy out of vx tomorrow but you could try, I'd get the bonnet up & look to see if there's anything obvious first, otherwise as you say don't mess.

    Pain in the a$$ though, you want to drive the car now dont you? Best time of year to show it off to the relatives as well.

    Best of luck in sorting it, let us know how you get on.

    Oh and by the way - Merry Christmas mate

    Thanks mate, it is a ****** as it's new and I want to drive it, but I don't want to make a problem worse so minimal miles till the morning now. I've popped the bonnett and had ten minutes looking and playing, just can't see anything out of the ordinary....

    Will report back tomorrow!

    Vx will be open tomorrow mate. Should be a normal retail day. I'm just not sure they'll be able to fit it in.

    Only managed to get to VX at 2:30pm today. Walked in showroom, thought this is a bit quiet... waited for people to come out from somewhere, nothing. Ten minutes later I realised I was in a showroom which someone had forgotten to lock!!! How crazy is that. Went and found a security guard up the road who said "well they've all gone for christmas now mate"..... hope he finds a key!!!

    But anyway I'll have to put up with the worrying sound till after "Chrimbo"...

    And you didn't take the 'opportunity' to 'test drive' the lovely Astra/Vec VXR sat in the showroom!!?

    Actually Doc "their" (wont mention location for obvious reasons) showroom is pretty low spec, aside from a Zaffy GSi. Thought best to get the hell out of there although 20 odd flat screen monitors does shout "take me home" at you...

    at this new name I've got!! . A Zaffy GSi!? That'd do!!

    <phone call from R-man to Mrs R-man>

    R-man: 'ello luv - get your self down here sharpish in a taxi. These nice people at xxxxxx have left me a Zaffy GSi for an extended test drive over Crimbo. You're driving the Veccy back.
    Mrs R-man: Oh, okay. That's really nice of them - I'll be there soon love.

    Blo**dy hell, it certainly does. Any less honest person would've been loading them up into their car sharpish! They were obviously in a huge rush to get home - being Christmas Eve and all!

    LMFAO at you DOC!!!

    There could be a Ferrari on offer and the woman wouldn't get her hands on my Vectra, even if she DID have a driving licence!!! Having a partner with no licence is 50 / 50 really...

    For: Doesn't nick your car, can't come and check on where your "supposed" to be.

    Against: Can't take points for you (not that I would... officer), can't drive you drunk, won't EVER understand either obsessive car cleaning or the wonder that is www.vectra-c.com!
