Are you sure its gearbox noise.
I have a rattle just like you describe.

It comes in at 1800 Rpm under acceleration, they seem a bit vague.

But two mechanics who have heard it seem to think its a sloppy injector causing a diesel knock.

Its not being picked up on a diagnostics though.

It goes in next week for repair.

The way I would describe my noise..........like a machine gun going off, but passes after 2000 Rpm.

I will let you know how I get on.
My Sportage has 50.000 on the clock.

Your car seems to have low mileage for clutch probs.

Unless these cars are prone to somthing ???.

Does anyone else hereknow about this kind of problem with Sportages ???.

Well my car went in today.

Main dealers reckon they need it back in a couple of weeks.

They are going to strip the gearbox.

It seems its not a Diesel knock at all, Oh boy here we go.

I shall keep posting re this.

you'll find they'll Kia that is, try to identify everything that will direct you away from the costly design fault of Kia's teh transmission.. see my reply as follows..
Hi... Hows the rattle..???? same here, had a loud engine/gearbox rattle for 12 months, finally identified astransmissionproblems.!!! and from 2 estimates given by 2independentgarages.. the repair will be approx £1500.00 - £2000.00. seems as if this is more wide spread then our our cars, the problems you'll always have is KIA like all other car companies is not going to admitetheyhave a faulty design issue and recall all cars for gear box replacements. The know we're british and will grin an bear it and foot the cost oftheirdesign short falls.

Well.
My 2005 crdi 4wd went in yesterday.

Now this is the Fifth time to the main dealers re this problem.

The car was bought from them second hand, the following day taken back with this rattle.

I want it fixed.

Seems now that its not a Diesel Knock as I was told.

Looks as if its the Flywheel.

Will keep posting re this, and hopefully will have a fix next week.

Hi, You'll find complaining to KIA UK is the only way forward, the dealers will not get involved in a lengthy argument about the fault you and so many have, they just want the service work and labour cost's, if they did'nt they'd all be out of work.
Kia Customer services rang me yestareday and informed me, very politly.. Forums are full of time wasting complainers who only complain with thier key board.Your rattle will be with you for a long time unless the transmission is taken out... at your cost. £500.00 labour straight away. Kia explained its out of warranty and tuff... if its a design fault.. you need to email KIA UK with the Transmission complaint about rattling... as we all do.

I had a couple of injectors go on a freelander, this didn't cause any kind of diesel knock.
I was a bit doubtful at that diagnosis.

I shall give the dealerchance to put this right, there is a flywheel on order.

They are doing this at their expence.

see what happens next week.

Wellits had a new Flywheel.
And guess what, its still rattling.

The dealer seems at a loss to explain what is wrong.

So I sold the car back to them, I just lost @@@ing patience with it.

I need to Tow with it, and have no confidence in this car.

I am very happy with the deal, and the dealer.

So its goodbye Rattling Sportage.

Will be watching this forum to see how you Guys get on.
