Idle Knocking/ Catching Noise

4 years 11 months ago #22454 by alistairtherand
Hey,

I have had My 2012 MG6 for a week now, and there is a sort of Knocking/ Catching noise coming from the engiene bay when the car is cold,

Once it is up to tremprature it sounds fine.

It sounds like a belt is catching something, but with it stopping when the car is warm makes me think otherwise.

All belt driven parts of the car are ok and they are not failing,

Has anyone else experianced this?? or is it just one of the "Quirks" of the car?

Thanks

Alistair :D

Mine makes a right old racket when cold has done now for many thousand of miles, I know what you mean noise wise ill try and record it tomorrow morning as its quite hard to explain....,

shirp shirp shirp shirp shirp shirp shirp shirp and mine goes quick and slower with revs. I think its bearing related when cold but hard to diagnose

I'm sure it's an automatic choke making the noise, I live at the bottom of a hill and if I try pulling off before its had a minute or 2 to warm up, just feels like a bogging motorbike.
