Clio 1.2 Engine crackling sound
Hello guys! I bought a 2001 clio 1.2 16v last week, and since then i've been noticing 3 problems. I need to change a cv axle, and the valve cover gasket that is leaking to the heatshield burning oil, And there's the weird noise. It's like a crackling sound, it comes from the left side of the engine and its getting worse (when i got it, it started at about 1,5k rpm the noise, and noise at 1k) and im afraid that it's just not a annoying sound, but something serious. Here's the videos of the sound:
Any help would be apprecitated!
