MK5 Golf GTI Edition 30 engine rattle
« on: 06 August 2018, 15:10 »
Having a massive nightmare getting to the bottom of a rattle and was hoping somebody has had the same issue.
A bit of history is that i brought the car on a bit of a stab in the dark due to it being a non runner.
It was due to the chain and i also needed a turbo and the turbo company said the turbo had gone due to oil contamination.
Anyway between 2700-3000rpm i get this excessively loud rattle from the engine.
It has had a new turbo, new chain, new tappets and lifters, new cambelt. also had the engine oil flushed 3 times and a top end treatment put in it and there is still a rattle. I don't know where to go next. You only get the rattle if you do harsh acceleration or blip the accelerator but if you increase it steadily it won't do it.
On idle its spot on and after 3000rpm its okay. but it is just too loud to do nothing about it.
Any help will be massively appreciated.
