Hi.

Im curious...

I own a 55 plate 1.8tdci, and its currently in the garage having a problem looked at.

The garage gave me a mk1 03 plate 1.8tdci and the engine ( Its done 180k) is soooo quiet compared to mine.

Mine makes a rattly / tappits noise - I say tappits, as its the sound I used to get when I had a Mk3 Escort back in the day, and I had to adjust them.

I also heard another Focus Mk2 56 plate 1.8tdci the other day and it was quiet. So my question is are the 1.8tdci typically noisy or is it just a case that the tappits need adjusting? Anything i should be looking out for?

Cheers

Glenn

PS: The reason mine is in the garage is that they are looking for the source of a knocking / clunking sound when going into reverse then into 1st and 2nd. Letting the clutch out normally gives the sound. Release VERY slowly and you dont hear it. I recently had Clutch, DMF and N/S Driveshaft replaced. Garage cant work it out. I think its still clutch / DMF / Gearbox related but they seem to think its in the N/S hub. Any ideas as I dont have faith anymore in teh garage.

Thanks IINexusll

They say that the engine mounts have been checked - no fault found.

I'll look at getting teh Valves done. I can't imagine it being expensive ( ? )
