2.4 10V knocking noise solution (water pump)
Today RS232 came over and joined me for a nice warm (NOT) afternoon inside his engine bay. He's had a knocking noise on this engine for a few months and it's finally (I hope) solved.
Not only was the original water pump still fited at 150K (bet you 16/20V boys love that), but the timing belt was a tooth out and the aux drive pulley was sliding on the undertorqued bolts. BUT worse yet, on inspecting the cambelt itself it was noted that it was infact a 2.0 TS belt. Also the long standing oil leak from the oil cooler was all solved by tweaking up the oil filter mount.
But as with all my informative posts, here's a picture of the old water pump and it also shows the location of the cam sensor on the 8/10V JTD (cam pulley removed).
