    4.2 TDI - Is This Start Up Noise Normal - Potential Purchase

    Hi guys, i need some feedback as soon as possible on this car i want to buy. The car has 73k miles, it has service history with 4 or 5 stamps on the long life servicing intervals. You can see the car has been very well looked after and its immaculate.

    I will get straight to the point i took the engine cover off to hear the engine from a cold start, i was a bit shocked by the noise it made, you could hear the chain and the engine was very noisy indeed, im coming from a V8 petrol Jaguar but i have had many diesels too, there is a metallic like (chain sound) and there is the loud clatter noise you get from a diesel, i would say it did not sound like something was wrong, it just sounded a lot different from what i thought it would.

    I found this video clip on you tube and i would say it does sound the same as the car i seen today, so maybe this is normal for this engine, the video on YouTube does not say anything is wrong but it lets you hear the engine with the engine cover off. What do you guys think does this sound normal.
