noise

i think its pretty normal if its the sound im thinking of
the 1.2 16 valave engine is quite noisy,,i think it mught be the toothed belt,,it aint got a cover, either that or it might be the oil pump,, anyway as long as you dont lose no power or oil or water ,dont worry bout it mine is the same

no the 1.2 is chain driven.what the ticking sound is.under the bonnet near the air box is a little valve that lets either air or fuel into the engine and they are pretty noisey especially on tick over when you rev it the sound seems to go for a few seconds it's not a problem they all do it some are louder than others

noise

is that the EKOTEC VALVE i keep seeing adverts for , i was thinking bout getting one of those but i wanted some info first, been on ekotec site and read up on it
what does it do exactly and does upgrading it improve or affect anything ie acceleration/fuel consumption/noise
