    1.8 sri vvt

    Ive just bought an astra 09 1.8 sri vvt for the wife,but noticed the engine is a little bit noisy its like a ticking quite loud coming from the injector area possibly the area where theres a box with 2 big electrical connectors on it,are these engines known to be noisy or is there something wrong,thanks

    yes they are known for noise, my friends Vectra is the same so i would not worry too much. it is down to the design of the top end. keep on top of regular oil changes and you should be fine

    you get a ticking noise from the carbon canister sometimes too mate, the thing that clips onto the airbox. mine is a z18xe and the injectors also tick a bit although it sounds more like a clicking noise to me
