Re: Water ingress

Thanks for response. What do you mean by 'power the head lining?' And yes I think they'll need to be checked to be absolutely sure.

Re: Water ingress

Yes has a sunroof and as I couldn't find the drain pipes I duct tape sealed the sunroof (its having a replacement panel whilst in for paint) so no water could get into the sunroof area which I think rules that out....

Re: Oil pressure & tapping

Throws the mechanics theory right out the window then! Knowing my luck the bloody thing will want the hydraulic tensioner and an oil pump! Its putting up a fight!

Re: Oil pressure & tapping

Spoke to Mechanic today over the phone and discussed the problem and played him the audio clip. He said the culprit may be the oil pump.... His logic; the oil pressure gauge is showing slightly lower than expected, the weak pressure is causing the hydraulic tensioner to not do its job right and Poss...

Re: Oil pressure & tapping

Is this along the right lines for a hydraulic tensioner? EBay item no 153480862318 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153480862318 Seems the US is cheapest, despite postage and tax. There are plenty for a higher price in Australia and one or two even more expensive from our shores. I'll check my Haynes tom...

Re: Oil pressure & tapping

Ok I sort of get what you mean now. I'll most definitely share this suggestion along with all the others to the garage when it goes in.

Re: Oil pressure & tapping

The 'beat' of that engine note does not compute with anything that 'turns' in the engine. Not camshaft revs, not belt length, nothing. Therefore, perhaps it is related to the MAF unit ? If there is any 'sticky' point where that plug has to move through just maybe that would cause the beat at low re...

Re: Oil pressure & tapping

Maybe your tensioner has fully failed whereas I think mines about 80% there. Do some YouTube searches for 'failed timing belt tensioner', I couldn't believe my ears at how bad some other cars sounded..... I'd be thinking full engine fail any of them where mine :cry: If like me its at the left of the...
