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.

    • Amuse R1 Titan Progress or R1 Titan Extra???
      By s14 · Posted
      Hi Chantiz,   I have the Powerhouse Amuse Titan extra. It’s not that loud at all but gives the zed a bueatiful sound. I’m not too sure what the difference is between the extra and the progress.  Keep in mind YouTube clips don’t give a great indication of sound.

      Thanks mate, I was thinking they'd be worth about $500.

      Try Facebook, you'll likely get more replies, but I doubt there would be anybody. Are there brands with similar designs that are known to fit?

      I think I vaguely may have seen some Enkei and Vossen wheels with a similar design but not 100% sure.

      Also I guess be wary about the US etc if they don't have pictures of fitment, as they're more likely to do things like excessive camber and widebody kits to "make stuff fit".

      It really comes down to how patient you are, I wasn't bothered stuffing around so I sold my 370Z Enkei's (18", similar to those) for like $550. Could have probably got more if I left it longer.

      I'd aim for that as a bare minimum, mine were similar condition but had cheap tyres on the front from the previous owner. If those 350Z wheels are forged or anything like that, then add more on top of that.

      Hi, I'm about to take these off, does anyone have a rough idea how much they are worth? one has more rash but they're in reasonably condition with Falken Azensis tyres with about 70% tread. Thanks in advance, Neil.
