    expensive sounding rattle..

    engine/something making an oscilating rattle at low revs in gear-a bit like when you used to put a playing card on a clothes peg on your bike wheel (or was that just me?)

    Is it turbo related? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif[/img]

    Same as. Just learned today that it is probably (tbc wed) an INJECTOR SEAT (made of copper / costs coppers) + two hours labour, hopefully.
