I'm sure this has been aired before but I would just like opinions on my specific problem. My son has a '56' plate Mondeo estate with the 2.0 L TDCI 115ps engine. Ever since I've had it it it has been awfuly noisy on pick up from idle with a loud metallic rattle. Running at normal speed is perfectly quiet and significantly, it has done it for something like 40,000 miles now. Each time it has been into a garage for servicing or whatever, no mechanic has ever commented on it at all so I assumed it isn't too serious. I've read about the DMF issues but one mechanic did say when I asked that it was a pulley or something that comes loose. As I say it is really pronounced on pick up as if it were a loose exhaust for example but I'm sure it isn't. As it has run perfectly for so long I'm inclined to ignore it. Anyone any suggestions ?
