over the last few days ive noticed a strange noise coming from my engine, mainly noticeable at tickover but also when in motion if you listen hard enough.
Its very hard to describe as its not a ticking noise, more of a rattly or sort of grinding noise that happens every second or so. Makes the engine sound pretty shite and its doing my head in.
I have not noticed any change in performance and no lights are appearing on dash...therefore it doesnt appear to be anything major (i think) but as it obviously wasnt there before, i want rid of it....
I know ive not been very specific, but its hard to locate where its coming from, seems like the centre of the engine but i cant be sure.
Anyone got any things i can check before i end up taking it in to Vauxhall for a check?....dont like letting people get their hands on my car especially when ill be charged for the pleasure!!
