2.0 tspark - Top end rattle.
Hello, Just serviced my GTV TSpark (cf2) and I noticed 2 Rattles/clatters coming from the top of my engine.
The first was the variator which went away after the oil change. The other rattle sounds very similar but is coming from the opposite end of the engine just under the cam cover.
What could this be? My balance shafts are disconnected (belt broke) so it can't be their bearings.
I also have a grey oil like liquid leaking somewhere from the left of the engine. There was a pool of it behind the Aux belt tensioner and my old Alternator was covered in it.
I have a spare engine, Should i start rebuilding it in anticipation of something major going wrong?
