MG MGF Technical - Engine Pinking?

Right then. Ive got a sound like a rattle when revs are a bit low and I apply the gas. Ive heard this before rightly or wrongly described as the engine pinking!

This was not happening before but seems to be doing it more and more (or im just noticed it and have become very concious of it).

Is there a problem I need to sort or is it normal. The only engine mod is a K&N induction kit and ive done 17k.


Hi Chris,

yeah mine does the same, I normally just add more revs and the noise go's away, but yes it is annoying. You could check the tunning.
