Renault Espace 2.2dCi (2004) - noisy on acceleration

I have a 2004 Renault Espace 2.2dci which appears to be getting noisier on acceleration. It accelerates fine but makes a real 'gruff' sound. It doesn't appear to be the exhaust as it seems louder inside the car. I am worried it is something related to the clutch or gearbox? The engine has been serviced a couple of months ago - with no outstanding error codes. I have had the car about a year and it seems to be getting worse - unless I am just becoming more conscious of it as my other car is much quieter, and this is characteristic of this engine!?

Hi

It sounds to me like a gearbox bearing problem if your gearbox has the markings PK4 or PK6 then I can almost guarantee you from personal experience as I have reconditioned these type of gearbox many times before, that the bearing are the main problem.

As a first solution you could try replacing the gearbox oil and see if there is any difference in the noise given otherwise the gearbox will need to be replaced or reconditioned.

I hope this information was somehow helpful!

Mitsubishi l200 2.5 did 08 very noisy engine, sounds very tappety is this normal ?


It may be worn out valve lifters that are inside the engine. If you have more than 6,000 miles on the oil, valve lifters could run noisier. Changing to a high mileage type of motor oil may quite down the valve lifters noise somewhat. Synthetic oil used during the summer months could make it noisier too. If you can hear the noise while driving the car, it is not normal. Upon acceleration, if it gets noisier, you will be needing a valve job in the not to distant future.
