My little baby sounds sick.
I'm getting a "chugga chugga" noise (almost diesel engine sound) from the engine area.

Anyone any idea what could be wrong?

Just noticed that it only happens on tick over. With a few more revs it goes completely.

Does it sound like this

Sounds like the injectors. Mine sound the same way. Since the Mini uses a direct injection engine, the injectors run at much higher pressures, similar to a diesel injector, and each pulse sounds like a "click". If you are talking about the sharp, clicking noise, I'd say that's it.

I have the same thing on my R53. I had the timing chain tensioner changed and new oil and filter with an engine flush, the noise doesn't come so often now.
Seems worse on the colder mornings, if I switch it off and start it again the noise disappears.
I think it is oil starvation in the head.
I have been told that the R53s should have the oil changed at least twice a year if not more to help with this.
Still, if the head does give up then at least it's an excuse for a Works one!!
