Engine Ticking Noise

2 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi guys,

I bought a 2003 350z for dirt cheap for a track car project. Came with a stuffed clutch/ running on 5 cylinders, etc etc etc, and having slowly been bringing it back to life.

One of the last major items to fix is what I understand to be the lifters on the drivers side bank, an annoying/ loud ticking noise which follows the RPM.

Ive replaced the fuel dampers FYI, and used a stethoscope and pretty sure its from the drivers cam cover.

Question is, would this just be a matter of adjusting the lash with a different size bucket as per the owners manual, or does it a stuck lifter?

Any workshops in Melbourne that are familiar with the VQ engine that people can recommend?

thanks!

I recommend Revzone in Ringwood.

    • ESCL ekectronic steelring lock

      If I remember correctly there was a recall here in Aus as well but only for certain series of that part number. I would demand to talk to the dealer principal rather than some service monkey that knows nothing but how to extract cash from loyal customers and demand the part be replaced (possibly costing labour which is fair) for a known faulty part that was subject to a nationwide recall. Search this forum for more info on the recall. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

      Ummmm !! Experienced the 'No start' and the orange key light.  2012 model 370Z. Tried the hammer trick, tried it again and again and again and eventually it released. Leave the accessory light on and removed the fuse. Car starts OK now. Quote from Nissan for a new ESCL(electronic Steering Control Lock) is $1,580.13 plus GST plus labour.

      Contact your local clutch specialist If you need to replace the flywheel that will really hurt - aftermarket flywheels are cheaper but also make unpleasant noise

      The last few times ive called nissan dealers, they’ve asked for the part numbers (being nismo or non-nismo) and they didnt have an issue selling me those parts. I did decline cause for a set of 2012 nismo wheels ended up costing 2k a wheel ?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
