    Default Rattle noise

    Hi, my car started to develop a rattle noise about 2 months ago. It happens when driving over 2200 rpm and keeping constant speed, but this does not happen all the time. Also I noticed today it happends when changing gear and, if in gear keeping constant speed (no rattle), when pressing the throttle AND when releasing it.

    I have the cdti 150ps, hope it's not the flywheel or cluch. When I bouth the car about 7 months ago the guy I bought it from said he replaced the cluch but can't be shure about that as it sais nothing about that in the service book.

    Help please!

    No noises when at tick over or when I press the cluch. Could this be a gear box problem?
    Any help highly appreciated

    does this only happen when the car is driven from cold ??, and you would have the accelerator pedal down fairly well ??, if you don't get this symptom when the car is warm/hot, its a diesel rattle you are hearing!, (normal for the cdti), over fueling gives a 'rattle' when acelerating from cold, only for a short period of time, and only from cold. is this your problem ??.

    No, this happends whith cold and hot engine, in 1-st, 2-nd and 3-rd gear, haven't tried upper gears, and in between 2200 - 2700 rpm. sometimes if I keep constant speed at 2300 rpm in 2-nd I can hear the rattle, it comes and goes, it's not constant. And from this constant spped the rattle comes in if I push throttle and take the foot off the throttle. I can also hear it the moment I change gears, at about 2700 rpm.

    I may be pee'ing in the wind here, but this sound very much like your flex pipe on the cat box mate.

    Have a read of this and you will see it sound similar.

    Hope this helps: http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...exhaust+rattle

    Vaux-man-G, I've read that, but I can't hear the rattle when in neutral. Thanks for the advice, I think I'll try that hose clip anyway just to rule that out...
