Hi guys, i have a 54 plate 2.0 ltr GV with 110k on the clock. Recently the car has developed an annoying rattle which seems to coming from under the front of the car. It sounds very much like a heat shield vibrating on the exhaust,and is really noticeable on start up and if in a low gear and put your foot down. I have had a good look underneath and can't find anything that could be the culprit.
I have had a thought that could this be a possible timing chain and tensioner issue ? The oil and filter have been changed every 5000 miles.
I have mistakenly posted this message on the wrong section so my apologies for that.
Any help on this issue would be very much appreciated.
Regards.
