and noise... both real...!!!!
can it be made to make noise , PARKED (easy if true)
find a real mechanic that can diagnose noise, many can't.
find one that knows all the tests and has a stethoscope .
there are lots of tests to do. not just guessing.
that lost power is diagnosable too. tell him that.
or find a new mech.
find a real ASE mach. with patch on sleeve.
- the drop belts cold test.
- pry all objects connected to engine, brackets, and pry the exhaust header pipe. noise stop?
keep in mind the engine shakes normally and can make things
connected rattle and make noise, we look at that first.
then work to harder problems.
i have an electronic stethoscope that i can hear deep problems
in the engine..
are you going to replace the $2500 transmission , on a guess?
so pick that last ,right?
The power loss , can be EFI issues
did you SCAN this PCM? and get any DTC errors?????????
if an intake valve sticks it will misfire bad (pretend #2 cyl)
the ECU then throws P0302, misfire #2 , and the HLA makes
a huge racket any pro can hear with stethoscope. at valve cover.
see some here.
id not drive it until its fixed,
