I just got my brand new Captur 0.90tce today and noticed after a short time this rattle when I accelerate or climb hills. It doesn't make the noise when the revs are high and the car is in neutrol. I have the petrol engine so I wasn't expecting this noise. Is it normal?

Hello Scotty

I have a petrol 0.9 Tce and I don't get the effect you describe - however, mine is an ex-demo with 6k on the clock.

Thanks. I am heading back to the dealership in the morning. I thought at 1st a polythene bag had been left under the bonnet and was flapping away. Its that kind of sound.

Its a definite visit to dealers.. I have same engine..just over 1000 miles on clock and have never experienced any of your problems. Mine makes a pleasant whineing noise when under load..certainly no rattling noises as you've described. Very strange. You will have to give an update after visiting the dealer.

An update on my situation. Phoned the dealer and got told to take it in this afternoon. They had it 2 hours then I got told the problem was a loose breather hose on the turbo. No damage done and its fixed now. The car is running well.

Glad it's sorted, I've got a noise on mine. So wondering if mine has done the same.
I get a raspy noise when changing through the gears and then it stops once I level out. Did it cause your mpg to drop too? As I was averaging about 54 and now only 48????
