Re: Engine noise

Hi Dalas, you say, The noise started soon after having the first cambelt changed, the tensioner was not changed at this point. It's now had another cambelt change and new tensioner and oil cam seal. This makes me think that someone did the work for you. Could it be that the belt tension is not corr...

Re: Engine noise

Hi guys. The noise started soon after having the first cambelt changed, the tensioner was not changed at this point. It's now had another cambelt change and new tensioner and oil cam seal. The noise it not always constant, doesn't happen when you first start the car. The noise creeps up after 5 minu...

Engine noise

I have a high pitched noise that seems to be coming from front cambelt area, it sounds like a electrical dynamo sound, noise increases with revs. The noise only starts when car has reached temperature. I've taken of the fan belt and noise is still there, so that illuminates the fanbelt, fan, water p...
