My 2004 1.6 hdi 110 Picasso has a rattle/vibration coming from engine compartment, which disappears when revving. No smoke, performance fine, engine runs smoothly when driving. Bottom pulley replaced recently. Present mileage 140k, cambelt replaced, turbo replaced, clutch replaced by previous owner, not sure when, car just passed an MOT without a problem
still waiting for my answer, ie, what is the problem?
none of the above, more like a rattle of something loose
Thank you. Your answer makes sense and I shall ask a local mechanic to look at this. If your guess about the timing chain having stretched is right, is this a complicated repair? Does it need replacing or just adjusting, bearing the age/mileage of the vehicle? Is there any danger of driving the vehicle in this state?
Good stuff, I think I've got plenty now to keep my local mechanic occupied. Thanks for your help.
