    Help Needed

    I had a problem with my car it was making a clicking/banging noise from the engine we all thought it was the release bearing but i had that done along with a new clutch and its still doing it

    when the car is hot it is OK until i dip the clutch then it makes the noise and if i accelerate it gets louder and faster as soon as i release the clutch it goes it only does it when its hot and it sounds like its coming from around the top end my car is a vauxhall astra ls t reg 1.6 8v with 120000 miles any advice appreciated thanks

    I know the tappets can be noisy until warmed up ...
    I presume you've checked there is enough oil.

    How loud is it...??

    Sarah does it sound like ticking..
    tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick

    When you accelerate? If so I think it maybe the fuel return valve. And unfortunatly it is loud and it is supposed to do it and yes it does sound like a knackered diesel. I can hear mine from inside the car but I have got used to it now. I thought it was something wrong with the car but I heard a brand new 06 plater 1.6 with the same noise.

    Noises are so difficult to diagnose without actually nearing them.
    Its a jam thing
