Engine noises!

Postby James-B93 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 12:51 pm

I have a couple of noises coming from the engine on my 85ps 280 that I want to make sure aren’t too worrying!

The first is a tappety noise when I get high up in the revs. It doesn’t sound like piston slap or the knocking you’d get from a bottom end issue. It appears to be coming from the drivers side of the engine. I don’t get a rattle at all on start up. Only this strange fizzy tappety noise. Does it sound identifiable??

My second noise is a jingly noise that I can only describe as sounding as if a bolt has come lose and a washer is vibrating around? It doesn’t seem to change with engine revs at all or with rotation of the wheels/drivetrain etc. I haven’t had chance to get under and look if anything is lose just yet but more hoping this is an easy-ish fix?

I could possibly try and get a video of the noises when I next drive the van if the descriptions don’t seem to sound like anything obvious.

I am also yet to carry out a service on it but will do soon and will also be sure to put some injector cleaner through and will also be starting to use a small amount (250 ml) of 2 stroke oil in with each tank to help keep the injectors clean and lubed up!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
