    Default Rattling vvt.

    Hi all, my 57 1.8vvt sri has started to rattle when idling after cold starting. It improves when its warmed up, but its still audible. Its done 25k, had 1st service at 12k, and and a further oil and filter change at 16k when I bought it. Also it has now developed some vibration when changing gear, only for a couple of hundread revs, but im hoping its not the start of something big. Ringing the stealers tommorow, just need a bit of info for when they try to fob me off. Thankyou in advance.

    Where is the rattling coming from? Could be anything without an idea of wehre from. If it's coming from the Cambelt side, id say pulleys/tensioners.

    I've had a few mates with similar problems with the 1.8VVT

    Its not necessaryly the dual mass flywheel. My 56plate vvt will be going back on the road this week after i have done a whole engine swap just to get rid of the rattle.

    I take it that was the big ends? Knocking under load?
