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???

Has it got the correct level and correct engine oil? if in doubt change the oil and filter and see if that makes a difference
Last resort check you tappet clearances and re shim if necessary.
