Cv axle won't tick when not moving, come on now.Ozziechan said:Do you think that could still cause it?
I had the same problem...After a fresh rebuild, the car started out making a slight ticking sound and grew larger within a couple of days. It only grew loud under slight acceleration which was wierd. Anyway, I took it back to the shop and lets just say they had to rip apart the block and replace the rod bearingsOzziechan said:Hey there.
just recently did a rebuild on my bottom end after spinning some rod and main bearings.
Everything's back together and running good now, but I'm noticing a ticking thats slowly getting louder.
I thought it was lifters at first, but I know it's not that now. For 1, it only appears when I accelerate, and 2, it seems to be a lot quieter when I have the clutch in.
These things also make me believe (and hope) that it isn't a problem with the bottom end or top end for that matter, but more likely something to do in the tranny.
My first guess would be that my flywheel may be coming loose as that has happened before, even though I made sure that they were tight.
Just wondering if anyone else had any other ideas about what could make a noise under those certain conditions, thanks a lot
Exactly what I did. Took that 6 bolt out of my car and put a running motor in it. Usually there is an oiling problem when a rod bearing spins. Oil pump was the culprit on mine and most likely on yours. Bearings just don't spin unless there is not enough oil.Ozziechan said:Third, If it is the bearings again then i'm definitly gonna get rid of this cursed bottom end and buy, either a brand new 6 bolt bottom end or one that has been rebuilt professionally
