Hi,

It is a bit hard to tell from the video but it possibly could be the timing chain tensioner or possibly the chain guide or chain pad could be broken or the chain has stretched.

How many miles has the engine done?

hi jack many thanks for replying.

We have now had it evaluated and it seems the problem is actually the gear box. This has been taken out and sent to a reconditioner for evaluation and price depending on how much they are asking we also have the option of buying a second hand gear box. Ive been quoted £275.00 for this, does that seem reasonable??

edit
the engine has done over 300k

Hi,

Yeah that dosen't seem a bad price, just out of curiosity did the noise stop when you pressed the clutch?
