CARS 1.8

2002 MG ZS • 2WD Manual • 52,000 miles

Hi there my car mg zs 1.8 seems to be making a very load rattling noise sounds like its coming from the left side of the engine by the alternator I think. It has smoke pumping out of the exhaust more then normall it just sounds like a few stones are in the engine somewhere smashing around. It only started to happen after all the snow we had suddenly I started my car up then the noise begin. I thought at first it was somehow ice smashing round my engine and as it warmed up it would stop but never did. I have no idea what it could be I have checked the spark plugs but they seem fine. Many thanks jamie
