Hi all, great site, you've helped me sort loads of issues out and saved me a fortune. I hoping you can help with this?
As of this morning I started to here an intermittant knocking from the engine, got to work (about 10 miles) and could not identify the noise.
Driving home it was the same, then about 5 miles from home it became constant, then a little louder and then i think an additional noise. I pulled over and got towed the rest of the way home.
Oils fine, changed every 6K, timing belt in one peice, took cam cover off and all looks good. No oil lights, warning lights, engine lights or excess smoke from the engine.
Any one have any ideas or had this issue????
I'm thinking maybe broken valve spring, or maybe shim issue?
Going to check clearances in the morning, then it's a cam out job next. I'd be susprised if it's a shim due to the speed the issue has come up.
Any help greatly appreciated
