Theres always the train? You might be able to get some cheap tickets depending on where your coming from?

(Better that way anyway - York's a nightmare for cars!)
#3

Give it a little tap with a little hammer, it might help

Sounds like the timing (on the new chain) could be out. Would explain both.

Or fuel pump not working correctly could also give both symptoms.

the noise is like ermm...do u know if battery is dead and u try starting it and it makes like a fast clicking type of sound,it does a few fast ticks then stops again,it only lasts seconds.the car is a mitsubishi delica we have just spent £800 on all the parts for it

If its smoking quite a bit it could be under stress, my brother is doing the same - he's going through a divorce

what car and what year?


its a mitsubishi delica (an import)
its an L reg but low mileage
past its last mot fine and had another mot 2 days ago and passed again
i had just put 12 months tax on it b4 it brokedown in june
i wish i could afford another car but i cant and i have struggled for the past year to pay of debts so i dont really want to loan money to buy another car plus i have just spent £800 on car parts

anyway taking it 4 a good drive now as maybe its coz its been stood for the past 4 months

If it's just had the cam chain replaced and it's making noises it needs looking at.

A good long drive may do more harm.

Have you spoken to your dad about it?
#22
just got back
just drove car on dual carriage way for an hour it didnt make the noise again
i did notice though that if i put my foot down when going uphill it seemed to jump up and down gear (its automatic)
my dad said he doesnt know what it could be and maybe its all the crap coming through as its been sat for 4 months and b4 that the fuel pump wasnt working properly it was losing power and smoking then just died,also just b4 car died he had put like a redex thing in it (it wasnt redex though he said it was stronger stuff to clean all the crap)
so i thought maybe that hadnt worked its way through plus the fact its been standing 4 a while
my dad couldnt find where the oil was leaking from,my bf thinks it might be a seal or something
