Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I changed my 1400 Citi Golf water pump and now I have idling at 1500 when warm and a"wirring"sound and "Pinging"on acceleration, but only when its warm

Nothing yet, I only put the water pump in on Sunday. I did however have to loosen 1 cam pulley to get the water pump in and I wonder if I did not jump a tooth on the timing belt?? I removed the crank pulley too, once again, maybe I did not tighten it straight enough or off alignment.

I would suggest tat you have the valve timing professionally checked Pinging ( detonation) is from air/fuel mixture and ignition timing and the sound may be from incorrectly adjusted /aligned tensioner pulley on the cam belt.

After buying the temperature sensor my problem was solved. the mechanics advised me to buy petrol filter and petrol gauge regulator and a petrol pump, thanks I didn't buy them.

Engine has pinging sound when warms up....


When does this noise occur? During idle or acceleration? Is the vehicle warmed up? Is the check engine light on? Are there any codes stored in memory? Was anything done as a repair prior to the noise starting? How many miles is on the unit?
