My car hates me!
Okay guys, my car is rebelling!
I threatened it with being sold, and it has developed a bad noise.
Now then, it has been there since the timing belts etc were replaced. At this time the oil was changed and all the normal serious stuff was done too.
Now when cold the oil pressure shows 6 bar,
When it gets hot, instead of the normal 4 bar it shows 2!
And also as the oil temp gets up above about 50 degrees, the engine starts to knock in a regular ticking knocking types way. Rev it above 2000rpm or so and it goes away.
Now a couple of options,
1. New 10w 40 synthetic oil instead of the previous 15w40 semi synth
2. Buggered engine main bearings
3. The damned car hates me!
Any other options?
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
