Engine Ticking/Rattle

Post by Ainsley.D » Sat Feb 11, 2017 3:12 pm

Hi all. I have a 1.4 Corsa LE 65 plate. Since I've had the car the engine makes quite a loud ticking noise when idling... It's been taken back to Vauxhall dealership twice and they say there is no problem and one of the engineers said he could not hear anything at all. It sounds like I'm sitting in a diesel car!! It's just had it's first service since I got the car and decided to try some Hydraulic valve lifter in with the new oil to see if that would help....nothing. Does anybody else have this annoying problem? And what can I do to fix it? Thanks

What's the milage? A slight ticking is normal,but what you say doesn't sound good ,you say its done it since you had it?was it like it when you bought it?,

Thanks for the reply Johny. The car has only done 2800 miles so far and had it one year on the 8th of this month. It has made this noise since I first got it but Vauxhall don't seem to want to know about it :evil:

If it was making that noise when you bought it,why did you buy it,?I would go to another vx dealer see what they say,or go to independent garage to see what they think it is

Hello everybody and greetings from Poland. At first i want to apologize for my English :( Dear Ainsley, i've got the same problem with my 1.4 75horse power Corsa it was made in 2016 but the model is 2017 and it makes a lot of weird noises, but only when the engine temperature is reached. When the engine is cold there's no sounds. I dont know what to do about it...

"only when the engine temperature is reached. When the engine is cold there's no sounds." - this is EXACTLY the problem I am having. It's frustrating isn't it?

Hi everyone. Did anyone find out what the cause of the noise was?

I've recently bought a corsa 1.4l 2015, and as described above it makes an occasional loud ticking noise when idling but only when the engine has warmed up. It goes again when I'm driving.

I’ll try to upload a video of the noise.
