    Default 205GTI What's that rattling noise?

    Hi Guys. I've got a dull rattling noise in my engine (1.9L 8V) and I was interested to know if anyone could tell me what it is? It occurs when the engine is cold, above idle and under load in the 2000 - 4000 range. It isn't a pinging sound but rather a dull knock sound. My only thought is excessive piston slap? I had a Porsche 924 that used to make a clattery valve sound when cold but this noise is not so tappety. Any thoughts? Matt.
