rattle around 1700rpm
my 2000 discovery td5 engine is making a loud rattle noise when accelerating or revving
around 1700 to 2000 rpm above or below that sounds ok... Any ideas? I'm baffled...
timing chain? or one of the tensioners maybe
thanks John will get them checked, would that be expensive?
could be if it snaps but a good mechanic can put new tensioners and chain on in about 3 1/2 hours it is quite a major job but nessesary to maintain a good running engine which will do 100k + there are plenty of enthusiasts and help sites on the web which will recommend a good specialist nr you that wont rip you off regards john j.s autos
many thanks John, Jeep already has 122k miles on it and is a good engine otherwise, i'll get those sorted asap, appreciate your help and speedy reply.
