    Can anyone suggest..?
    Ive a Audi80 '93 TDi done 127k and had it 5 months. Just passed MOT. Not serviced for 9 months.
    In the last couple of weeks Ive noticed a loud rattle from the middle-to right section of the engine as you look at it.
    It doesnt get faster as the car does. Seems to stay pretty constant. Can't seee anything untoward as I look at it. Anyone know what this could be..?

    make sure your ignition switch is not buggered and your starter motor is not stuck on

    Cheers

    yes I'lll look into that this weekend - thanks. I had some amateur diagnosis going on last night, suggestion:- the 'crank' had gone..? The noise is definitely coming from the top section of the main part of the engine and if that it goes the whole engine is done - Apologies for my lack of technical speak..! Its been taken off the road forthwith.
