My car has developed a whispery type ticking noise on start up and goes away when its warmed up. If i rev it goes and once its warm it goes. Seems to be coming from the drivers side of the car. Any ideas?
No fumes at all, it just passed its MOT and i had a tensioner done that was creating another noise. Could it be the inside of the exhaust, as i noticed the exhaust goes to the engine that side. Maybe something inside is rattling and goeswhenand it expands??
Injectors "chuffing" is a common problem spray or pour a small amount of soapy water around the base of each injector (dont soak the wires) and start it up.... if you get bubbles then you have a leaking injector.
You would then need to replace the copper washer on the injector cost from KIA is 91p......... But you could do with cleaning the seat with a cutter to remove any carbon.
