[Engine] Engine rattle 1.8l Diesel
#1
Driving along - 40 -50mph, suddenly a fairly loud "dieseley" rattle starts from the engine when under load. No overheating or smoke, but seemed a bit down on power. Carried on for about 7 miles, no change but the engine seemed to be vibrating more than usual. After stopping for 1/2 an hour, restarted the engine and it was back to normal, no sign of the rattle

Any ideas? I'm thinking fuel pump problem??

if you mean 1.9d my old one did and still does this with its new owner, I was told something about the pump timing, turning it off and back on resets a relay then its ok for 6 months again, if it does it again pull over and try restarting, what year is yours?, mine was 2001, the dw8b engine would only suffer from this as it has the later electronic pump timing
