2.4JTD shims - engine knocking
My alfa 156 2.4jtd 2001 has started to knock....it's had the knock when cold, but has now got it all the time - like a diesel...but loud if that makes sence.
I'm only guessing that this is tappets as it's also lost a bit of power - there is no smoke, all fluids are fine, it's not 'breathing' into the oil ways and nothing is blowing out, so don't think it's headgasket..it also sounds like the top of the engine..hence why I'm thinking it's tappets.
Also, it's around time for a cambelt..it's done 95K and was changed at 41K, so if it does need shims I may get both done at the same time.
So, any ideas what the clearance needs to be? or is there a linky to a 'how to'?
