DS3 Top end knock

Post by Bluemalbert »

Hi all, my daughter has a DS3 1.6 2013 50k on the clock. Its well serviced and runs fine til yesterday on a 100miles journey developed a top end nock/ratttle. Im a bit vague as ive only heard it by phone! The car is in Wells Somerset. Questions: 1. Do these cars have a history for top end rattles? 2. Could it be valve lifters not working correctly gunged up? 3. If it were a camshaft issue (bearing or whatever) how expensive is it to repair - Im loath to send her to a dealership as she doesnt have that sort of money. Is there anyone who can help in the Wells/Frome or nearby area? Thanks in advance.
