Hey guys,

I dont know if this is normal for the
but listening to mine today at idle the engine block sounded a bit rattley/tapety (Dont know how else to describe it) It has done this since I have had it, drives fine... Just curious to whether its a normal noise for them?

Also My power steering pump whines whilst at idle? Any ideas?

Thanks

Often what you're hearing is in fact noisy injectors and this is a characteristic of ST's.

Think the PAS pump noise could be normal too, it's electrically operated so could be this you're hearing

I've noticed that too when I'm scraping the side windows, assume it's just the alternator complaining that the screen heaters, heated seats, blowers and lights are all on.
