  • 2.0 cdti 118kw strange ticking sound

    Hi,

    I noticed a while ago that my '11 Insignia engine is making a weird ticking noise. I uploaded a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_e8Z1TAKqY
    Sorry, the video is dark. But you could hear the sound. Not that much, when revving.
    Any ideas what it might be?
    Oil change was done about 3000km ago, used Dexos2. I think the tick was there before oil change.
    Also theres some vibration in the car when idle. I can feel it through the seats and floor. Or is it normal for this engine to shake a bit?

    B/R

    Hi and welcome.

    How about posting in the introduction section and tell us all about yourself and your car.
    This is what's normally done when joining up to a forum.

      Sorry for being rude. I will make the introduction post in a sec. I am more "straight to the point" and not much of a "small talk" guy, but will do my best.
      Could you please clean this thread?

          Im not sure if the tick is audible without headphones, but I know it is there.
          How does this engine sound in general? Does it sound healthy or should I be concerned about something? Im a bit skeptical about those 2.0 fiat diesels

              But can you feel engine vibration inside of your car?
              I can feel in mine. It is worse when on gear (automatic D), when I put it on neutral, then it is a bit less, but still there and I don't like it..
              I've had the car for 8 months, but I think the vibration was not this vivid, when I got it... Maybe it is in my imagination

                What rpm does it idle at?

                  Don't know exactly, but at about 800-900 I guess. Idle rpm is stable.
                  Vibration is also on revving at low RPM.. Could it be engine mounting cushion gone bad?
