    Default Hardbody 3.3

    My son has a 3.3 Hardbody 4x2. It started making a hollow kind of sound on Sunday. It sounds as if it comes from between the 2 cylinder heads .....like when you are tapping with a screwdriver handle on the intake manifold.

    Any ideas to what i should look at? It has 210 000 km's. Cambelt replaced on 115 000 k's.

    Could be a lot of things.

    Does the sound vary?

    - valve seat
    - cam follower
    - manifold crack/leak
    - injector failure

    No, it is the same . When you start it is quiet but then you can start hearing it. When he switches off you hear it clearly...that hollow sound

    I think we need a sound byte on that. I have no idea what you are trying to describe.

    A hollow knocking that doesn't change speed but varies in volume?

    that does sound bad. but sounds like its on the outside of the engine ....things to check.....
    pullyes , tentioners or beaings of the tentioner especially the one running the aircon belt, starter might be loose , sounds like somethings is loose and rubbing . good luck let us know when you guys find the fault.

    yes it is a bit of a job to get to the tentioner s but its worth replacing that than having something break inside the engine. glads its sorted. i had the top tentioners bearing fail and was quoted an astronomical R800 for the part. but i whent to the bearing place next to Nissan and bought the replacement bearing for R24 and used the old casing. problem solved
