    Default Knocking noise

    Anyone out there with a 2.2Dti auto experienced what I can only describe as a knocking noise from the engine under full throttle acceleration?
    It starts quite faintly about 3k rpm and becomes quite noticable from 3.5k onwards.
    Increases with RPM, and seems to be in rhythym with the engine RPM itself.
    Sounds tappety/bottom endish to me.
    Anyone?

    Why would you want to rev past 3k anyway, all you're doing is burning extra diesel and filling the road with smoke? All the power is below 3k in the DTi.

    There's no smoke at all from it. It's an auto as I said, so on full throttle acceleration it changes up just before the red line, no choice. I can't be ars*d with using the manual bit. No ideas then chaps/chapesses, no one's had this before?

    Sorry mate no, but our company pugeuot things can sound knocky almost like pre-ignition but I thought that was how diesels sounded etc. as the ignition is compression controlled not computer.

    Understand now why you are revving high as its an auto.
