I brought this car recently but starting to think that it is a lemon. The engine is very loud! Vibrating mad lol is this normal? Also the engine light is on, apparently garage found 2 faults and sorted them.
mine is a bit chuggy on idle but smooth after that, and when you say loud in what way? being clacky on idle, also normal, dose it rev ok? do you have any black sludge around the injectors? do you have the engine cover?
Have you had the code(s) read? what cc is it?
Yer I know its a turbo I asked about cc, anyhow if your 2l is like mine the ecu cannot detect egr operation its just a solenoid that it operates, it can detect that the solenoid is there, as for the purring .....maybe its the cat! ok ok I'll get my coat! Sorry but the door was open. Right check the vac lines check the solenoid try and detect better the area the sound is coming from.
