On cars with the 16 valve twin spark engine, it is important to have a comprehensive service history and a recent cam belt and tensioner change (Cam Belt Change Offer) is always an advantage, as if it has not been done within 36,000 miles (or 3 years, which ever is sooner) it will be the first job you need to do. These engines can also make a rattling noise on start up that sounds a bit like a diesel engine, this is most likely the cam variator and while it is not essential to change it, as the car will not breakdown as a result, it is probably best to get it replaced with the cam belt. If the engine still rattles when warm it may be due to problems with the engine bearings and it would be advisable to get a mechanic to look at it.
