Rattling / Tapping Noise 1990 Sierra 2.00L Dohc

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, Has anyone out there experienced a rattling or tapping noise when accelerating from cold in cold weather conditions,that disappears within a few minutes as the car warms up. My local Ford dealer can't figure it out,although he suspects it could be something to do with the gearbox,as it seems to be coming from that area.

Thanks

Richie

Are you sure the noise is coming from the gear box? I thought the engine might be pinking with too much fuel going in.

Thanks mate,but its definitely not pinking,and the noise does seem to come from the gear box area,its a real weird one. Especially as it only does it when the weather is really cold. When its above say 5c its fine.

Cheers
