Hey long time no upload,
My car is now back on the road and running great, never got the chance to get this uploaded. Anyway, I will probably make a video showing the final product along with a couple issues I am having.
My Nissan 300ZX, Timing Belt, Part 2
Sorry for not covering more of the progress. Had done a video before I pulled the belt but my phone did not save it correctly.
Anyway, got the timing belt off along with all the idlers and water pump. Since I recorded this I installed the new oil seals.
1994 Nissan 300zx Engine Noise /Knocking (fixed)
1994 Nissan 300zx 2+2 N/A Engine noise/Engine knocking. I started to hear it one day after work.
So far I have searched and asked a few people, getting mixed reviews.
Put in Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer - Did nothing
Changed the oil - No change
Did a compression test in each valve - All stated at the same pressure
Replaced spark plugs - No change (the ones I replaced seemed like they didn't burn)
I am currently stuck :|
Found out the timing belt was way off and the auto Tensioner was not working properly.
The belt was fine so we just reused it.
Cleaned the auto Tensioner and re-positioned the valves, put it it back and it ran smooth.
Leaving this video to others. Maybe someone had a problem and at least this could be a start.
