U12 Pintara engine noise
« on: Nov 24, 2015, 08:57PM »
Hi, Just wondering if someone could tell me what is causing this ticking or knocking noise in my CA20E Pintara. Thanks in advance for any help. Hope you can hear it.

what grade oil have you got in there , how old is it?.
not the timing chain , CA has a belt.
the words "race car" spelled backward still spell "race car"?

Could be a large tappet gap or a dodgey rocker arm? 

Pull off the rocker cover and have a look.  Its not a large job to take the cover off and see what is happening.

Hopefully an easy fix for you!
