In Topic: Engine Rattle At Idle. Worried!!

22 February 2013 - 10:29 PM

Unfortunately, it is a "problem mondeo" ie 2001 petrol. Funnily enough when I took the car to the garage it was due an oil + oil filter change so I got that done too. Unfortunately, the sound still persists.

Due to my lack of tools i'll have to pay a garage to take apart the manifold and have a look at the butterflies. This is my hunch....

Just wondered whether the fact that the rattling comes ONLY when the engine is hot may be a significant tell tale sign of whether it is a manifold problem or not

Ahhh I see - thanks for putting a different angle on it. I didn't think of it possibly being a circular clip type connector. Its a pig to see what you are doing in that tiny gap but I shall have a look / go ASAP and report back here. May need a dentist's mirror lol.

Thanks again
