Strange noise on start-up? Any help apreciated!


Recommended Posts

Took the westie out last night after a dry day but was making a very strange noise, managed to get it started and was spot on after that.


But tested it again today and the noise is still there when initially starting it up, any ideas of what it could be?


Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Struffff - I thought I could see "things" that weren't there - but top marks for that one - yup, a big smiley cat (which may well be the source of the noise !)


:d :d
