I was driving last night and then all of a sudden my engine/exhaust sound became weird / louder!
When the engine is at idle it seems to make a ticking noise / sounds like a big chavs car!
When i rev the engine the 'bad' noise disappears around 1.5-2.5k rpm and then comes back around 3k+ rpm.... sounds like its been decatted or something... how the chavs like it to sound i guess but it just sounds ridiculous to me!
Could this be a crack in the manifold? gaskets? seals? etc etc
Can't get it booked into renault to see if its covered under warrenty for a week or so....
If anyone is in the aberdeen area and has a bit more of a clue than i do (which is none) - Would appreciate a bit of help and/or advice. Is this a simple fix etc?!
Need it fixing ASAP as i am meant to be driving to glasgow with work on Wednesday!
Alternativly - is there any garages that are willing to take a quick look at this and advise?!
