Opinions on this 320D engine noise please (Video)? ASAP

Post by dxze » Sat Sep 09, 2017 4:32 pm

Hi,

Looking at a 320D for a family friend, got a video of the engine ticking over with the bonnet open - how do you think it sounds? Does it sound like the timing chain is okay? Bear in mind it's the dreaded N47 engine and a 58 plate...

Car was previously owned by a mechanic who the dealer says serviced the car himself but didn't stamp the logbook... They have serviced and MOTd the car since it was traded into them.

Avoid/sound okay?

(also thinking I could get an engine health check done if I buy the car and if there's anything wrong I could claim it off the dealer from their warranty - opinions on that?)

Thanks for the help gents!

I've heard the "car has been serviced, but not stamped or not kept any receipts for parts" story a few times when buying cars. IMO I'd avoid like the plague
