  1. 1.2 16v warble rumble at tickover?

    Anyone now if this is normal. It’s like a low-pitched warble/rumble, it seems to be out of frequency with the engine speed but goes as soon as it gets above tick-over. I saw a similar video about it being the cambelt tensioner, but my noise seems to be more from the air filter side. Any ideas...

  4. Air Con making tick-over unstable

    Heating & cooling
    I noticed this morning that the my Air-con is making the engine tick-over go up and down a bit, like its fighting the compressor. The Air-con is working fine but I've never had it re-gassed in the 4 years I've owned it and I don't know when it was re-gassed (if ever)? As I understand it...

  6. Megane 1.9dci Poor Tickover (Hunting)
