Question about 1984 Moto Guzzi 850 T 3 California

1 Answer

Intermittent rattle I have a rattle somewhere at the front of the engine. [This is a Cali '93 with 68K on it.] I've been trying to find it for a month and have tightened everything I can find. Could it be a timing chain/ tensioner ? If so how urgently should I fix it?

The 93 model should have the sprung Guzzi timing chain tensioner so although it may not be the best in the world I wouldn't have thought it would make that sort of noise unless the spring's broken.,,,

You could have serious trouble with the engine losing that much anti-freeze. If it is not leaking out somewhere onto the ground, it may be from a bad head gasket that is letting coolant burn in the cylinders (you would see white smoke out the exhaust), or it may let the coolant get mixed into the oil in the lower engine's crankcase.
Pull the oil dipstick and look at it. If the level is way high, or if the oil color is milky brown looking, then you have water (anti-freeze) in the oil-a bad head gasket, and a big expense to fix it. That would explain the rattling: water in the oil stops the oil from lubricating properly, and the engine bearings and other moving parts inside the engine can be damaged. If this is the case, and the reason for the rattling, then the engine is shot and needs a total overhaul, or you need a different engine.
If the coolant was leaking outside, post back. Has the engine ever overheated from low coolant? The rattling is worrisome-have a mechanic listen to it if you get it started. If it won't crank over, have someone see if the engine can be turned by hand-if it still turns freely (not siezed up), then the starting circuit needs to be checked for why the starter won't work. Good luck. Check the oil first thing.

Yes, it COULD be a timing chain rattling, but again, your guess is probably better than mine at this point.

Without the ability to hear the noise it is impossible to say. Noises can be very difficult to locate when you are standing right in front of the vehicle. It is completely unachievable to perform this task remotely.

Are you sure it is coming from the engine and not the transmission? Or maybe even the exhaust? It is not likely for a timing chain noise to go away as a reult of putting the transmission in gear.

As for the misfire, when does it occur? is it at idle? Is it when you are accelerating (putting the engine under a load? Does it only misfire at high speeds? Much more info needed here.

Hi. I own a 2004 Buick Rendezvous and I must say, it's the best car I've ever owned. Recently, like within the last 2 months I've had a groaning noise with every left turn. My husband filled...


he filled the PS fluid? it was low? If so it has a leak somewhere, usually the high pressure line. the rattle could be anything, have the front end and steering linkage checked. tie rods, sway bar links, ect.

You didn't say which model or engine.
Check for loose heat shields, broken engine or transmission mounts.
