2004 Vauxhall Signum 2.2 direct petrol from UK and Ireland
I bought this car last month. It drives like a dream.
There is a clonking noise from the front, but I was told this is nothing to worry about??. After reading the reviews about this car with the 2.2 direct engine, pump problems etc etc, I am a bit worried that I will soon also have problems, Just hope not!! Any comments are welcome please.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

A clunking from the front could be many things, but I would think it would probably be suspension bushings, which can be changed easily and cheaply on most cars. If you think a problem may occur with a pump in the future, then you could change it for a compatible pump of better quality. I say that.. but I don't really know which pump we're on about, just trying to be helpful.

High pressure fuel pump is the one, but when it's changed it's usually the end to the problem. They have upgraded it to a Continental pump instead of Siemens. The knocking noise is the radiator mounts, WD40 on each corner will stop the noise. Hope this helps.
