Ours did the same thing timing belts fall apart and then bend the valves! Ours had 60K You could pull the teeth off the timing belt with your fingers! Everyone has the same problem so heads are hard to find, will cost a small fortune to rebuild and replace this one(lots o valves!) piece of ****!

Car died with no warning

sometimes on a smaller v6 motor they dont make much noise when they lock up. the easiest way to tell if it is locked up on your own is to take a long breaker bar with a socket that fits the bolt on your crank and turn it. if you cant the motor is locked up.

2000 Camaro fuel pump/ fuel filter/ and fuel pressure regulator all replaced, still no gas getting to the motor.. mechanic is stumped, don't know what it is.. my car started getting harder than normal to...

i can tell your mech is not ASE pro. not at all.
guessing is for squids.
a pro uses his tools.
he didnt now you are broke, find a real ASE mech, and save $$$
so what was the fuel pressure.

if the pressure (generic answer) at the rails is not 30 psi
and your mech cant figure that out, fire him.
dont argue with him, just move on.
if the pressure is good at the rail and 1PSI (squirt tests are useless) then check the pumps stall shunt pressure.
if at spec the regulator is leaking.
if the pump fails the shunt test its is weak.
check for 12v key on for 3 seconds in to said pump.
if 12v dont land there, bingo now power.
sorry 8v is no good, 12 or as low as 11v lowest there, at the pump.
the pump is not running full time the ECU prevent that and the
TV crash and burn issue. it runs for 3 seconds each keyon.
some older cars, only have pump voltage cranking.
read the FSM , its all there, including all the test and all these pressures, .

sorry your mech, sux, truely ! i am sorry for you.
find the ASE badge on his /her sleeve, see that>\?
no? the Walkonbye. (pun included )

2007 Gran Vitara engine noise when start

old help, so here i am, filling the hole for next person.

the V6 has no cam belt. it's a chain drive.
how many miles on v6 motor.?
the chain runs 2 times longer than a belt. easy. or more.
the hydraulic adjusters may not, when not doing oil changes on time.
the start up noise is normal (not mine) but the factory TSB covers this, on higher mileage v6,
the engine starts and the chain , or lifters can make noise
until oil pressure reaches normal. (0w oil can be and issue here)
i run 10w40 all year, and mine runs like new, all the time. 100k miles on my block.
if the noise stops , after few seconds the TSB is clear on that.
its normal.
if it makes noise full time, really any engine. its time to stop
not run it and fix it or the damage can cascade it to total engine destruction.
have an ASE mech, diagnose the noise and true source
we have tools to do that , and you dont.
we find the true source and evaluate that.
next time post how long the noise happens, hot and cold
and hot only start ups.?
most shop manuals have a chapter on noise.

here is typical translation of that.

Grinding squealing noise coming from engine BUT motor has oil.

It may be a slipping belt. Spray a mist of WATER on each belt and see if the sound changes. Belt may be loose or one of the belt driven devices locking up.

1995 LeSabre - Starts and runs fine, but engine cuts off without warning. First time, 5mph in a crowded school commute traffic. Put in park, and started right away. Second time, after turning onto...

If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.

I had to rev it to start and it would often die at intersections

There should be a pressure switch for the power steering that regulates rpm' to the computer.
It should have an electrical connector on it and located on the rack and pinion assembley.
