I have a couple of questions about my MK4 Astra (1.6 envoy)
If its cold and I start the car, theres a rhythmic (its ticking at about 250-300 BPM) ticking/clicking noise from the driver side of the engine that is relative to the RPM of the engine but goes away after a short time/distance (40 seconds give or take)
The strangest thing about it is: If i start the car and it ticks, then i turn the car off and restart the engine, the ticking doesn't come back!
Also, if I turn the ignition to the point before the engine starts and let it sit there for about 10 seconds, it doesn't make the ticking noise, even when its cold!
Is this something to be worrying about? i'm supposed to drive to newcastle from surrey tomorrow!!!
It doesn't always happen, usually when its cold and it always goes after a short while. Any ideas??
Which is more accurate? my TomTom 720 or my speedo on the dashboard?
It seems that the speedo thinks i'm going quicker than the TomTom does!
Any help would be great!
