Diesel Engine Rattle
 
Hi Guys,
Just wondering how your CRD's are fairing after a few kms on them. Mines at 6000 and I am getting a diesel rattle when cold that subsides after the engine is to temp. This is my first diesel and I assume this is normal as the engine approaches the magic 10,000kms when it is fully run in?

It is normal, but not really noticeable inside the car with windows up.

It's normal for a diesel. Some other diesels rattle noticeably all the time.

My vehicle has 1000km on the clock and is also noisy when cold but that subsides after the engine is to temp. :D

Once the car gets to running temp, almost magically, it runs quietly. I think the warmup opens some valves which make it noisier.

Take a look at the high pressure fuel pump if the noise is coming from there. if it is you need to space the cover slightly as the pipe is actually vibrating. That solved my problem.
