    new cdti

    I have just got the new cdti 1.9 sri astra,it drives nicely,only thing is that when i accelerate there is a noise,with i can only descride as a tapet sort of noise,i have checked the oil and it is fine,the car has done just over 1200 miles now and is still doing it.
    It makes no noise when at standstill and reving only when in gear and driving,any help will be good,gonna get the garage to test drive it soon.

    The noise is there all the time hot or cold,I have had a vauxall mechanic come out with me and he agreed that is was not right,so they fitted a new set of injectors.
    but the noise was still there,now its going in for 3 days to have a new high pressure fuel pump put in,i know diesels are noisy as i used to have a golf gttdi remapped to 150,so trust me these is not a normal engine noise.
