Couple of months ago I bought a 64 plate cmax 1.6 tdci with 50k on it.
All seems fine, plenty of pull, no clutch noises, smooth through the gears but one thing I am noticing is there seems to be a rattle/'clacking' sound outside when accelerating from low revs that smooths out around...
We have a 2007 1.6tdci cmax.
I starts up first time and ticks over great but it’s incredibly noisy. It sounds like a tractor. We’ve checked timing and the obvious issues but we cannot find the problem. I think they call it diesel clatter.
any ideas would be great???
