Re: noisy noisy bravo

Have you check the oil level your car could be screaming out for oil if it sounds like that, maybe a good service will do it good as well. Does the engine seem to run ok or does it hestiate as it may be running rich as well. You may have an oil leak which is while you can smell oil when it get hot as it prob dripping on your mainifold.

Re: noisy noisy bravo

noisey and rattly on startup, so that suggests its not noisey or rattly once warmed up?

which engine is it?

if the servicables havent been changed in line with the service schedule then they should be changed.

Re: noisy noisy bravo

if engine is turning at normal speed then starter is fine and it must be ignition or compression or injections that are preventing it form starting.

lets deal with ignition first since its the most likely, so check for a good spark on all plugs.

do a compression test to check timing is ok.


which engine is it?
