M50 engine noise
I have had a noise issue for several years and which is getting progressively worse as you might expect.
Nothing when cold but when hot at low revs under light load what I can best describe a a dull knock. Under heavy load eg a fast start it does not exist! In any event the noise goes away at higher revs.
With a stethoscope it seems to be from the timing chain area but it is not what I would regard as chain noise.
Various dealers have listened but no ideas except to disconnect Vanos which I did with no effect.
I thought about oil viscosity change with temperature perhaps related to chain tension but this is spring loaded!
What about hydraulic tappets? but location does not stack up
I intend to remove the cam cover to have a look but don't expect to see anything amiss.
There are no performance or any other issues.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated
Does disconnecting the Vanos actually stop the parts from rotating? I don't think so.
Nope, it will continue to rattle and make noise until the seals and bearing are replaced, plugged in or not.
