Hello All, I have recently gotten a knocking sound when starting up my silvia, it goes away on idle but once you rev it and also while shutting down you can hear it. Yes i have looked at every thread and video i can find but they're all consistence knocks while mine is quite on idle. We thought it may be the tensioner but no luck after changing that. We suspect the noise is in the manifold but very hard to pinpoint. The belt is also very tight. Here is a video of it turning on. Thanks!
hi guys, im sure many others have asked this question before(i cant find any recent threads on it), but i have a Nissan Silvia S14a (1998) and the VCT ticks and rattles REALLY bad, it sounds like a turbo diesel when i drive it. usually only ticks on idle. ive replaced the solenoid.. but i dont know if its worth the 400-500 dollars on getting a new VCT cam gear, or is it possible to get adjustable cam gears and fit them to the stock cams... (i will make up for the power loss at a later date) otherwise.. what is the most cost efficient way of doing this.. im not too keen on buying second hand VCT gears (because it may be no better than the original) cheers.
Hi, I have a 2001 Nissan 200sx S15 and yesterday when I turned the key to the 'ON' location without starting the car, there was a weird noise coming from the from the inside of the car. The noise is coming from the front dash of the car (around the middle area) near the air vents just above my CD player. Its a tick noise follow by a buzzing noise that is repetitive, I think approximately 4 or 5 ticks then a buzzing noise, and then repeats again. After starting the car or switching it off or on multiple times, it still seems to be there. The noise does not seem to go away, even while driving it is still there. I looked inside the bonnet and the noise is not coming from there, its only something inside behind the dash. Any help would be great. Thanks.
