    funny engine noise??

    hey, my mk;3 1.4 astra has a funny noise to it. when i turn the engine on and its just ticking over it sounds like its ticking or there's something caught???i think its sounding like its coming from the belt, si thinks its the back of the engine??i can't physical see anything but it dosen't sound right. I had my timing belt replaced about a month ago, i dont think it can be that. u dont hear the noise when the cars reved.

    any one got any ideas on what could be wrong??? :?

    thank's people

    Have you checked your oil level recently? Might be something really simple. :|

    Sounds like what Ineson suggested to me. Low oil level or it could even be the hydraulic tappets. The rubber seals become hard over time and so let the oil seep away which causes the "ticking" as they're dry. If this is the case, you'll find the noise goes when the car starts to get warm or after a few revs.

    Check the oil level first though
