Trying to do the research here guys, but there is so much out there on this and so much is conflicting, that I don't know what to believe and what not to, so please excuse me starting a new thread on a subject you've probably seen a million times before
Just bought a Mini Cooper 1.6 on a 59 plate, first registered October 2009.
I has a rattle and a knock which has sent me googling for an explanation.
I've seen loads on the 'Death Rattle' but from my research this only seems to affect the Cooper 'S' model? Also youtube videos of it are very loud and like an old diesel engine.
This is not my youtube video, but my car sounds EXACTLY like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uTnWkTP9a0
So what is this and is it anything to worry about?
