    Default Engine rattle

    Hi, have recently noticed odd rattle from cambelt end of engine on my 52 reg 1.8 LS Vectra. Its ther at idle speed, gets louder and frequency increases with revs, dont think its power steering pump, seems to be coming from outside cam cover as its not muffled by plastic - any idaes please. Turns into more of a buzz at higher revs...Neil

    Id say water pump mate, this is driven by the cambelt on the 1.8 of that age.
    I had the same thing, and it was the impellor that was goosed.

    They aint too dear, but mine was done at an independant, so not sure on dealer prices.

    I'd confirm that as well. Same age and engine and I'm having the same noise from the same area. Water Pump and aux belt should be changed at 90k or when the cambelt is being changed...

    Price wise for parts I think around £40. Probaly another £90-£100 for labour. It is a 2 hour job.
