    Travelling home, my engine suddenly turned from a very quiet diesel to a
    rattly one.
    I called out AA and mechanic said it was probably an electrical fault in
    engine management and motor had reverted back to a std diesel with knocking
    and rattling from the left hand side when looking in the bonnet.
    Took it to main dealer and the mechanic could find nothing wrong ??
    But I know it is a lot louder now than it used to be.
    Any ideas please. ( 12months old & 12K miles)

    Pressure knock from one pot not getting fuel??

    Sounds possible, would that be an injector problem? I must compile a list of
    possibilities and then slap it on the dealers desk!

    Can be injectors if you're lucky, could be a pump prob.
    Difficult to say without even hearing it ;-)
