Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Thanks for the replies :-)
That fits in with it being the VVTi cos it's coming from that area of the engine.

Is there any way to check this? Can u disable the VVTi temporarily and run the engine to check if it goes?

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Wasted most of rest of night trying to drill the broken bolt out (cos my mains drill stopped working and the battery one was next to useless so think i need a new mains one to do it!) Also whipped the coil packs off to look in there though and worryingly, they all seem to have oil on! Is this likely...

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Thanks mate :) I was (and still am a bit!) scared of the potential big problem this could be but feel a bit better after talking to my Dad about it and he is optimistic that it sounds like a top end issue rather than a bottom end one from the video and his experience (he is retired recently but was ...
