MG MGF Technical - Engine Rattle in 2nd & 3rd
|I've just started to notice a slight rattle sound when accelerating in 2nd and 3rd gear...it sounds like is comming from the engine but soon dies off once you pick up a bit of speed......any ideas?|
| Hi Darran.It sounds like you need an oil change + new filter! If your engine is pinking it allso could be the timing/dizey cap/leads/rotor arm and old plugs ect.|
(Good Luck) Paul...
|Sounds like "pinking"|
What does it sound like? I ask because if it is a Prrrp type noise it could be a rattle from the oil/coolant inspection panel in the engine bay grill.
