Unhappy gp noise from engine

hi everyone new on here today, hope someone can help with my gp 1.4 8 valve evo 2010 which wehave owned since sept 2011, when started from cold the engine is very noisy sounds a bit like a heavy knock its only covered 8000 mile, oil level is spot on and clean
and never gets over revved when cold, this seems to be getting worse our local dealer says its normal, any ideas i could throw at them.

Re: gp noise from engine

Hi
I have the Punto Grande with the same engine -> 1.4 Fire engine and mine has been great with no problems and its on a 57 plate. Some of the Fire engines are more noisier than others, its sounds like something is knocking but there isn't anything wrong, more like a diesel engine sound

PS, my dealer said the same thing.

Oh and for those wondering ....... yes it called a Fire engine

Re: gp noise from engine

Is it a clonk as the engine starts? do you get any more rattles....

First place to check would be the air box intake pipe which lives behind the drivers side headlamp check its in its rubber mount on the front cross member

Re: gp noise from engine

The intake pipe does make a metallic sound if its not pushed into the mount - I had that when I first got my car

Re: gp noise from engine

got the car back from dealer today and have confirmed that we have excessive piston slap, they propose to take the car in next week and remove engine for a rebuild as it may have wrong pistons fitted, not at all happy as car only has 8k
on it, looks like i'll have to go to germany in the old evo then next week
