Also guys I have a question

I have the 2.0 N20 engine 20i

When hearing the car at low regs or stationary I hear a ticking and tapping sound, the best way to describe is probably like an old transit van diesel!

Is this normal? And is there anything I can do to stop it as it doesn’t sound healthy

Thanks
Ray

Really? Does anyone have the black grills that I can see an example of?
From the pics it looks like it already has black kidneys on it. Nice car by the way and welcome to the forum. Two great choices you made there:

1. Buying a Zed
2. Joining this forum

I was bought a set of black kidneys for Christmas but I just cant make my mind up as to whether I really want to fit them?

Anytime your near Blackpool give me a shout and we can go out.

Hi, these engines are never going to be quiet due to the noise the direct injection produces but later models had an improved acoustic engine cover to lessen the din.
I’d have thought a breakers would come up with one :?

Thank you for the warm welcome, I’m not often around Blackpool but I will do next time I’m there! Also, I’m trying to forget the recent years (being a United fan!)


With regards to the engine, it really is pretty loud and tappity on idle. Is there any way I can see if I have the updated acoustic cover? I’m worried and hoping it’s not a timing chain issue?
