Hi

My partners car is a “V reg 1999 206 1.1lx” The car is 8 years old and currently has 54,000 on the clock; anyway she came home from work a couple of days ago and told me about a rattle in the engine. I know the basics about cars, so I had a look at it. When you take the car out of gear and then, take your foot off the clutch whilst the egine is running, you get a rattle in the engine compartment? So I took it into a mechanic, and he thinks the problem is with the crankshaft slightly pulling. He said he wouldn’t know for definite until he takes the sump off and gets a good look underneath at the engine. So I said what’s the worse case scenario, he advised a replacement crank shaft - which would set me back £600, that would be the worst case! Has anyone had a similar issue with the crank shaft, if so any advice would be appreciated!:(
