    After reading about the cams issues on someone else's thread I think my car is quite loud ticking knocking on tick over. Worse when cold.
    Could anyone tell me if my car sounds normal or not please

    I can go and take a video of mine now for you, but I only got back in it 2-3 hours ago. Would it be cool enough yet, or does it need more time to cool down first? And did you need the engine in any particular mode?

    Mine was just in normal drive mode and it was the first start in the morning but it was already 16 degrees so I would think your oil should be cooled down enough to get a good comparison.

    If you wouldn't mind

    Thanks mate. I'm slowly dying inside worried that their is something wrong with her

    It was still showing as 80 degrees, so I can do another tomorrow when properly cool.

    I took the video, but it won’t let me share. Cropped it to 14 seconds in case the file was too large, but then it was the wrong format.

    Do you want to DM me an email address or WhatsApp or something that I can share via?

    I braved the rain and took a video few hours back (needed to nip out anyway), hadn't been started for 2 days so nice and cold!
    I'm unsure, yours fractionally louder ?

    Thank you mate. I also appreciate u taking the time to do this for me. Sounds very similar and it's reassuring to me.
    I did think diesels sound like this but after reading horror stories of cam issues and chain tensioners etc I did worry when I noticed mine was quite loud

    No worries at all mate. Either you have nothing to worry about, or we all have knackered cams :highly amused:

    No problem - mine was ice cold and sounded similar to yours. All 3 engines sound about the same, so we should be good!
    DonkeyIce - if you could upload a video when you have a minute that would be much appreciated. I doubt all 4 would have cam issues.....:blink: :glee:

    What have I started ^^ , I've listened to both your videos and they both sound fine. Before mine was done, trust me it's way way noisier than either of your cars. The ticking you can here is the injectors, if your touch them you will actually feel them ticking because they're electronic solenoids.
    All sounds good to me

    Thanks a lot for that mate. Put my mind at rest even more now.
