Hi all,

My Corsa D 1.3 CDTI (2008) makes a rattling noise between 1100-1300 RPM as I accelerate then it goes away and comes back when I drop back down to those revs. When it is a cold start, it is at its worst. When the car warms up it won't be as loud and doesn't seem to rattle too much compared to when it is first started cold. I am trying to find out what the problem is.

I'm assuming it may be the timing chain and it has been happening for nearly 2 months now.

I am looking towards your responses ASAP.

Hi there its hard to say without hearing it, but Corsa's all seem to suffer from the same rattles, Water Pump, Cam followers and timing chain, if it has one...it could be "pinking" but modern day cars are not supposed to do that if the knock sensor is working....might be an idea if you haven't done it lately to change the oil and filter and refill it with fully synthesised oil....if it has a duel mass flywheel they rattle sometimes...from Fred in Essex.
