    Default Strange Rattle

    ok so I was deriving home the other week and went over a speed bump at the bottom of the road ( as I have done hundreds of times) I then got a very bad sound and the car conked out. pulled her up got the torch out as my first thought from the sound was the undertray had fallen or something was rattling of a fan

    checked undertray was fine and nothing rattling of the fans etc

    started the car up was a bit funny at the start, got her 200yds up the road and into the garage, again checked but no obvious signs of what it is

    Now when I start the car and she is cold I can hear it but once she is warm its fine, no issues diving she still pulls like a train under boost when she is warmed up.

    My car does have piston slap buts always has and its nothing like that sound

    answers on a postcard please lol
