Vito 110CDI problem

Hi all, I've been here reading all the posts for a while now and have a problem that I can't find any information on that I hope someone can help with?

I have a 2000 110cdi and when I try and pull away with low revs, my van judders and it sounds like something in the engine bay is rattling really loudly. It happens whether the engine is warm or cold. It is also happens when I'm in to high a gear for my speed and try to accelerate. I've only had the van a couple of weeks and hope this isn't a terminal problem!

Hope someone can help.

Jamie

Sounds like you need someone to rev the engine a little bit while your'e looking under the bonnet to see if you can hear/see whats rattling.

PLease give more information. Could be anything from a rogue tool left in the engine bay ( I found a copper mallet in the engine bay of a van once when I got it home from buying it) to loose mounting bolts or knackered big end bearings.

Is there oil in the sump?
Has the oil been changed regularly? or at all?
Do you get a lot of smoke from the exhaust?

Right, I haven't had a look at the sump yet, I was hoping someome would have an amazing idea before I had to take it apart. From what I've checked the oil looks like it could do with being changed. The guy I got it from said it had been serviced regularly but didn't have anything to prove it. As for smoke from the exhaust there is a bit of black smoke when I accelerate hard but nothing more then you'd expect. I don't see the road disapear behind me.

The rattle itself tends to be worse when your on full lock, trying to sneak into a parking spot for instance. At motorway speed the vans fine, it runs quiter than I expected. Its just pulling away or reversing with low revs.

I'll have a look tommorrow when its light to see if I can see any tools floating around!

Cheers the help.

sounds like one of your CV joint if its when you turn they are very common vitos, drive around with full lock on in a car park and see what side is making the noise

The weight thing on mine rattled against the suspension top, I removed it and put a thick washer under it to raise it above the suspension top, which stopped the rattle.

There seemes to be a nylon bush inside that had worn away on mine, I don't know if these are available seperately or if you have to buy the whole assembly

Hi, I think you may have a similar problem to what I had.
My engine had knocking and rattling noises at idle and on full lock was even louder. Like yours it was quiet when going along.

I feared that it was an engine internal problem but after researching around the internet(probably this site?) decided to buy a few choice parts to try and remedy the problem.

For me it was the belt tensioner and water pump bearing ( I think)
Because after changing these my engine rattles were ALMOST all gone.
I think for me theres still something in the same area with minor noise problems but its good enough for now.

So I'd suggest looking around the belt area for worn components (changing the belt while your down there might be a good idea).

Regards
Tony
