I've got a 99 sri 140 lucky me :down: there is a rattle coming from the top of the engine i think, it only does it when you rev engine it sounds like something is loose or could it be something more serious ?
I've read on another post that the manifold can sound like this if its nackered ,any ideas
thanks

the manifold sounds like a tapping noise but if its had low oil it could well be the cams. on the good side, the SRi 140 is just the 136bhp eco motor so not hard to get the bits for.

i had the same problem with a omega 2.0 16v w reg took head off put new one on with new cams and followers it was still the same in end i took engine out and stripped it turned out this had a crank shaft balancer in the sump that had shatterd to bits but the noise did sound like it was from top of engine and also only happend when u revved it up hope this helps you and also hope its not the same problem for you if it is change engine quicker and cheaper you can get them for around £150
