Engine note in cabin

Post by Aspen » Fri Feb 01, 2019 9:28 pm

Hello all,

I’m new. And I’m just getting to know the car and it’s sounds and quirks.

My question is, how does evetone else’s td6 engine sound in the cabin? I can’t get over the fact that I can hear top end rattle at lower revs. I mean, maybe it’s a landrover thing or maybe it’s a faulty engine but I’ve nothing to compare it too and I was expecting more refinement to be honest. It’s just a bit tracktory if you ask me 🤷🏼‍♂️

Is that normal?

HI Jinbg thanks for the link, I checked it out but I don't think it's what I'm suffering.
This sounds like a cross between the turbo vein actuator rod rattle from the VAG diesels / GTI's etc and a blown head gasket of a E46 M3 (specific I know) basically the engine sounds like it had a biscuit tin with small pebbles in it, sat on the top of it, rattling about.

Much worse going up hill.

You try asking on there, it is a much busier forum
