Re: Diagnosis Please
Hi simon, yes it does get a little quieter when warmed up.
As mentioned it is hard to pinpoint exactly, if i stand back from the car it is a lot more prominent click/tick type sound, when i try to listen closer it's harder to find exactly but appears to be more noticeable around cylinder 4 ex manifold and rocker cover area, also gets louder as i put my ear round the thermostat area as well
looking at the manifold i would have a hard job removing it, very bad condition. The nuts have deteriorated very badly over time.
Is there an easy way of detecting any hairline cracks/leaks from the manifold instead of running my hand over it (can be difficult with the high temp)
