    Default 1.9CDTI (150) Shredding itself??

    Have the engine and when cold it rattles ... posted before as sounded like could be chain but seems to come from top of engine. When motor has been left for a day or two its very loud and goes with high revs and when warmed up.
    Goes with the sound of the engine.

    Any ideas or where to start?

    Could be the hydraulic tappets being drained of oil.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    the tappets are a dealer adjustable item in the service schedule... so it could just be they need the backlash adjustment shimming out again..
