    Default Rattling Engine

    Just to gauge the opinions of others on this one, to see if I'm being overcritical or whether it needs looking at:

    When I start my 1.9CDTi 150 from cold, it makes a very loud tappety rattle, more than I would expect even from a Diesel. This happens for up to five minutes until the engine warms up a bit.

    Does anyone else experience this on a daily basis, or should I get it to the dealer for a listen?

    I think it's ok mate, they are quite noisy when cold.

    If in doubt though get it checked, won't do any harm.
