Xantia HDI Estate - Rumbling at 1200rpm

Post by Taffyrhys »

Hi All

These days its like one problem after another :( :(

The citroen estate has just started to rumble/grumble/vibration from the front (more to the off side) when im in gear and moving forward at around 1200-1400rpm, At other speeds it is fine.

So i suspect the gear box and the wheel bearing is ok, so was wondering if its the O/S drive shaft but its strange it only occurrs in the rpm range of 1200-1400??????????????

Any help greatly appriciated. :-D :-D :-D

1. Try pulling the handbrake on a bit to see if it goes away - the pads can rattle on these (assuming it's a 110) making a right old noise.
2. If not already done so, unplug and blank the vac pipe to the EGR solenoid valve - mine runs much better at low engine speeds since doing this
3. When was the cambelt last changed? Mine stopped doing this after I changed the belt (till it came back, but was fixed by EGR valve as in 2)
