Re: i have a knocking sound rom the engin

When you used the stetoscope, was there any point on the engine where the noise was more profound? Did you listen on the timing cover as well? How long ago did they change the timing kit?

Re: i have a knocking sound rom the engin

The sound was on the left side if your standing in front of the engine bay did check the timing cover sound was on the same side but as i went down the rocker cover toward the back it got quieter .the timing was done 3 months ago got the knock 3_4 weeks later then was put in the shed until now as we moved house

Re: i have a knocking sound rom the engin

Maybe wise to take it back to the shop who did the repair, would be too much of a coincidence that something else started the noise. Maybe a problem with a chain tensioner or so...

Re: i have a knocking sound rom the engin

When it first started i got the misses to take it back she said that they reckon it was bad and would need a new engine but i would expect that when talking to a female hoping to get more money

Re: i have a knocking sound rom the engin

Attached service manual print for the timing cover removal. You should be able to remove it with the engine in place. Maybe radiator has to be removed to create enough space to get to the cover. Its not just a simple cover to be removed, it requires draining the cooling system and removing the crankshaft vibration damper, which requires a puller. Not impossible to do, but for sure not a first time job.
