ive noticed my engine makes a ticking/knocking noise when revs get to 3k onwards?its the 1.6 tdci. any ideas what i could be if anything as ive not really had diesel so all the noises are new to me haha


How loud would you say it is, mine sounds ticky after 3k revs but only hear it with window open,

does this happen when idle as well or just when driving along?

Not tried it at idle tbh. Will do when im next out though

ok so had my car terracleaned today, as i picked it up the mechanic who took it for test drive afterwards said i've got a ticking/knocking sound, and i said is it only after 3k and he said yes, couldnt say what it was because obviously he's not looked into it, but recons its top end, right hand side which i though too   anybody had similar problems in the past?


Wondering if it could be a tappet issue?


i did try recording it a few weeks back, but when playing it back couldnt really hear much of it, tried with window down and all u could hear was wind haha.  weird how its only 3k onwards
