changed the fuel filter but still no joy. recently had oil and filter change. Any other suggestions?
Ideally you need someone with a mechanics ear to listen to the rattling i suspect thats your next port of call. I would look for an old boy like me who grew up diaging problems with his ear. Next it would be to plug in to a diagnostic machine.
At 97k thats quite low mileage as the 1.9 is capable of 300k+ if looked after.
Does it run fine otherwise ?
Try injector cleaner just in case ( long shot )
EGR rattling ? easy to remove to check, when off blank to two vacuum lines to disable it.
Do you do any spannering ?
seems to run fine although stuck in traffic for a while the temp seemed to be creeping up more than im used too in previous vehicles? im quite handy is it easy enough to disable the egr?
