It's normal, so you can relax. Mine is the same, as is Rays (407Mad), and every other one I've come into contact with. Sounds like a biscuit tin of broken crockery being shaken.

The 2.2 is an interesting unit. It's very undersquare with a long stroke, and has the VVTi valvetrain, so there's a lot of metal reciprocating.

A high quality 5w40 oil, such as Fuchs or Motul, will quieten it a little, but fundamentally they're a rattly ol' thing.

Don't 'arf go well though.

diesel noise

I just bought mine 3 weeks ago, it drives beautifully. But it does make that diesel noise when cold.I have a 3 month warranty from a dealer. should I be concern about this and take it to the local shop? It is loud when starting cold , but after the oil temp goes up, you can't hear a thing,I heard on the forum that it can be faulty variater, lifters, maybe the timing belt needs replacement ? I,m planning to do that in the next 3-5 thousand miles for sure.


Can you guys advice.

Great thanks,

P.s. It's got 90 K on the clock if it matters, just had an MOT and a service:D

Hi David,
I see that you had some quite experience with these cars.I heard about faulty cam variators , would you recommend to bring to bring this car to the shop and have them checked out? car got 90,000 miles on the clock. just had been serviced.But I don't think the cam belt has been replaced, can I do it at 95,000? And what oil would you recommend for the next service?

The cam variators don't give trouble really.
Below is the Total Lubricants recommended oil for your engine.

The noise actually comes from the timing box , my worry is. That will break or the belt will snap. Once the oil temperature is up it's fine . I will have it checked out next week . When I bought the car I didn't noticed. The warranty does not cover wear and tear , but this is not wear and tear I hope. How much. Would it cost to replace a cam phaser you reckon? Car got 91k miles on the clock and I'm not sure if the cam belt was changed . It was serviced last by previous owner at 74k . Stamp says gold service , but does not say anything about the belt. Wonder if this noise will get worse.

I just found out that the variator for 2.2 petrol is 450 £. ( original from Peugeot ) . With the labour , plus cam belt, pulleys, water pump will total 880 £. Lots of money. AA only will cover 500 £ so the rest is on me. :((

the noise

Hi Chopper,

Just had the oil replaced . Used Total 5W-40 Full synthetic.
Seems that if the temperature outside is low the car is more noisy.
The noise actually stops when the oil temperature reached 90-100 degrees.
Then it's okay. I haven't been brave enough to take it to the indi yet.
