What is the problem if I hear a rattling noise from the engine?

Normally, this is due to lack of oil. Check the dipstick and add oil if necessary.

If this doesn’t solve your problem, check that all external components, such as silencer, carburettor, spark plug and cables are properly attached and tight.

If the problem persists, we recommend you contact your local dealer. A list of dealers is available under Service Locator above.
