    odd noise from drivers side of the engine

    i heard this odd nose from my engine last night when it was on tick-over

    it was coming from behind the drivers front wheel and sounded like a steam engine if you know what i mean

    it wasnt very loud but didnt seem right

    any ideas lads ?

    if its a rattling sound it's probably the water pump.

    I belive the clickey thing on the suspension turret/airbox is the Idle Control Valve, or something to do with emissions anyway ??

    IF it is this, then it is defo on the drivers side, just a thought, probably not that though as the noise is very very distinct :|

    Thats exactly the symptoms what I've got on my 1.6 SXI. I've already had the EGR valve replaced, but no-one can explain what it is.
