Hello everyone, new member here. Hope you guys can help me with an issue that's popped up. My FGX XR6T has recently developed a ticking/knocking and rattling sound after having it's diff bushes replaced under warranty (bought it from Pickles fixed price about a month ago). Their statutory warranty has been a PITA to deal with, but that's a story for another time. Since I've had it back, I've noticed a ticking sound from the front (somewhere near the engine) and a rattling sound from the rear (somewhere near the diff). I've taken a video of both issues and a mate of mine thinks it may be an exhaust leak and the exhaust rubbing/contacting against something. When in neutral, the ticking noise increases in speed as you rev higher. The knocking sound doesn't start until the engine is fully warmed up. Based on this fact alone, I doubt it's an exhaust leak but my mate has much more mechanical experience than me. I've tried comparing the knocking sound to different videos on the forum and youtube and judging from that, it seems that it could be anything from exhaust leak, bent conrods, bad crankshaft bearings or even piston slap. I really don't trust the Pickles workshop to be able to sort this out since they created the problem in the first place... Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Please move this thread to another area if it's not the appropriate topic. Car details: - 2016 FGX XR6 Turbo - Ex-highway patrol car (cop chip and extras removed) - 81,000km on odo - No mods - Recently had diff bushes replaced - All fluids except power steering have been replaced with Nulon recommended products (Engine, Trans, Diff, Radiator, Brake) Knocking sounds: Exhaust rattle:
Hi guys im new here and had a little look around in regards to this topic but just need some clarifying. I have a bf turbo 95000km's with a 6 speed manual currently running 280rwkw. Just recently iv been getting a ticking noise from my gearbox, the noise is evident when the clutch is not pressed, when I push the clutch about halfway to the friction point the noise disappears, however if I push further all the way to back of the firewall it comes back louder and faster then when the clutch is not pressed (hope that makes sense). I can faintly here it when cruising with the revs bellow 2000rpm, the noise seems to disappear once engine revs increase. It doesn't effect the performance of the gearbox at all. It is also not the thrust bearing as iv had this checked out, I think its the netural rollover every seems to speak of with the 6sp, the guys at HPF told me it seems normal but dont know unless they take apart the gearbox. None of my mates cars (bf turbo and ba 2 typhoon both manual with more km's and more rwks) have the issue, any help would be appreciated thanks!
