    Default Engine knocking 1.8i 08 facelift

    From time to time I get a knocking which comes from the lump. Can hear it when idling and it goes off with acceleration but returns when back to idle. Other times its fine and doesnt knock at all. The car was only registered in March 08 and im worried it will get worse. Any ideas if its serious?

    As it should still be under warrenty. I would take it to your local VX dealer and get them to listen to it.

    Need to narrow down if it happens at a particular time or not as with it being irregular in its occurance I have a feeling I will get there and it will be fine. Will they take it off me and check it over or not? If it isnt faulty will I get charged? and will VX still take it if I brought it off Arnold Clarke?

    Knowing main agents as I do they will probably ask you drop it in first thing in the morning and leave it with them. If they find no fault they will not (should not) charge you. Where you bought the car will not be an issue.

    I think it happens when I accelerate hard.

    Shouldn't be any noise, my is smooth with only a little tappety noise that you can only really hear with the bonnet open. Though mine's in for the 3rd time while they try and trace the oil leak of doom.

    It's the oil leak that won't stop. 1 crankshaft seal, two camshaft seals, a cam cover and several cam cover seals and it's still leaking.
