    i was sitting on idle today as i was letting it cool down, i had no music on and i could hear this knocking noise coming from the engine!

    so i opend the bonnet and got out, basically it was coming from the head off the engine ( i think ) and it was making a knocking noise at the same speed as the engine was ticking over! so quite a quick knocking noise!

    it wasnt very loud, i had to put my head closer to the engine to hear it!?

    what could it be
    ??

    This could be extremely unrelated,

    I once heard a ever so slight noise that no one else could hear knocking from the engine, that afternoon the engine basically died kicking out White smoke. Turned out to be an injector.

    But as I said, could be completely different!

          See, I said it may be random. To be fair, it could be a loose bolt in there, would be the same sound pattern as the engine yeah?

              I get this sometimes. I think it is the injectors nothing to worry about. If you blip the throttle it should disappear. Mines done it since I brought the car and touch wood it's been fine
