... this isnt that hard. check your chain stretch. if its over 4 degrees change it. the rattle you are talking about is that your only running on 3 or maybie even 2. at idle it sorta jumps around correct? i would take the head off and inspect the cylinders. my 240d started usuing a gallon of oil every day. so i took the heads off sure enough there was significant scoring of the cylinder walls and rings were in some serious need of help.
