Hi
Developed a ticking on acceleration, even when warm, doesnt do it when free riding, sounds like its coming from chain side of engine, Is this terminal?
Any Help is always appreciated before I go to Garage

Hi,Don't know if this helps,had my XT 2.2 diesel for a few weeks now and going to work the other morning i noticed a nasty rattle from the engine.Had a listen when i got to work and was convinced it was the timing chain.I am a mechanic,but have worked on TVR's for the last 10 years so don't have much to do with diesels nowadays.Anyway i rang the local Nissan specialist and arranged for them to have a listen the following evening by which time the noise had gone.Went along anyway and spoke to a very helpful guy,when i explained the noise to him he said it sounded like the drive belts when they get wet.He was spot on,every time its been out in the rain the noise re-appears again for a while until they dry out.Going to replace the belts when i get time and see if this cures the problem.

Still got the car, still the noise, and still just turn the radio up,
just decided to contact nissan to see if recall on chain had been done, (after 4 years of having car) I dont do things in a hurry

Still got the noise, changed both belts,exhaust fine, obviously not terminal as it still chuggs along, and stealer emailed me back with date recall done on timing chain, my motown CD cures the problem on No.10 volume though!
