Another drivetrain noise story.
At least face me with dedicated thread if any.
Car is AR159, 19JTDM16V, manual, 130tkms.
Noise is mentioned from passenger side ( LHD car ).
Noise character is a variable mix of crunch and rattle.
Noise is clutch independent. Noticed at neutral roll and constant drive with 1st, or 2nd gear engage.
Noise is speed/revs dependent. Shows up than car reach the speed about 10kmh and gone at 30-35kmh.
Also shows up with neutral. As soon as car reach same 30-35kmh from more higher speed and gone with the same 10kmh one way around. Hard acceleration creates no any sounds. Higher gears and speed drive is perfect.
We have just raised the car up to simulate ride. No noise.
Have moved and shaken everything. Same result.
Have also simulate drive with single wheel jacked. No noise.
Looks like noise show up under the load.
Russian rule means that any inner car noise would become outer sooner or later.
But I do not like this rule this case.
Any ideas ???..
