Ticking sound help

2 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi guys, I've noticed a ticking/slight knocking sound coming from the engine bay over the last few months. I'm not sure if it's getting worse or if I've just started noticing it more. I had a misfire in january and the mechanic i took it to turned out to be pretty dodgy. After replacing the coils and spark plugs, the issue ended up being a broken tappet gasket cover which he "fixed". The car hasnt felt as tight or as powerful as it was before the misfire. I ended up forking out $$$ for not only the coils and sparks that i didnt need, but also de-cat pipes since my cats melted. I'm not sure if this issue is related to that or if this is something new. I've tried researching forums for days and the answers varied from broken rods/its normal/ it's a fuel pump issue/ need to fully rebuild engine.. and everything in between. No solid direction to head in. So I'm turning to you guys to hopefully get some answers. I'll post my mods in case it's relevant. Mods: Plenum spacer Jwt pop charger intake Cat back exhaust Spitfire coil pack Ngk iridium spark plugs Thank you in advance!!! Any help is very much appreciated https://youtu.be/Qh1IPaooUXQ 2003 350z track. Vq35de Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
