The time to worry about tick-over in a diesel is when you CAN'T hear the engine!
Ever been in a Merc taxi on Cyprus - you know the type - 350,000 miles all original and no compression.........but very smooth!
There's got to be a downside to getting 50mpg out of an engine that runs on heating oil, and a lumpy engine is it.
I,ve had my 130 for about six months now, and have been very pleased with it BUT just clocked up 14000 miles now and all was fine ,smooth idle and reasonable noise levels now its really loud at idel and seems very noisy at speed !.This has only just become noticeable in the last week .oil level is bang on the mark and im useing the same fuel i,ve used for months BP ultimate. There hasnt been any drop in performance that i can tell , and belive me i use it
Any ideas guys?
130 SPORTING / with a Dragon tuning box fitted :devil:
how are you finding your 130's in the cold mornings ? mine starts fine but sounds very tappy if its very cold, but once i pull off or let it warm up for a few mins its fine.
