  1. Ok, I took off the CAS. The bearing is making a noise when spinning it. louder than most bearings that I've heard. I took it off, lubricated and cleaned it, and the noise actually stopped for a bit. Then it started up again after about 20 mins of driving. Might try take it off again and properly lubricate it and give it another clean, see if that does anything. Not willing to buy another CAS as they're going for around $800
  2. Aiit sick, I'll take it off in a sec and have a look. If there's f**ked bearings, I'm guessing it's common for the bearing to be bulging
  3. I recently took the CAS off, marked my timing cover, got the new one, marked that up (It is a clear one), and put it in. The timing belt looked in pretty good condition, so I decided not to change it. The ticking didn't start anywhere near after doing any of that, so couldn't have been that. If I were to take it off, what would I be looking for?
  4. Taking it off, it needs to be back in the exact same location doesn't it? If it's put back slightly different, what would the outcome be? Would the cams just smack against the rocker cover?
  5. So just got a screw driver and went on the vct solenoid and all that good stuff, couldn't hear the noise. Went on the right side rocker cover, could hear it, left side slightly but not a lot at all. The closer to the front of the engine I went, the louder it was. The cas was the loudest I could get it. So I'm guessing it's something timing related? Perhaps could be one of the timing pulleys? Not sure if tightening it would do anything though. Another possibility if it's internal, could be oil viscosity maybe? With the KM's its got, I'm running 10W50, did the service last weekend
  6. Ok so I'll attach the video I just took and see what you all think it is. It's started probably about a week ago. My 34 currently has 216,000 km on it, fully stock apart from pod filter and boost controller running 12 psi, and yeah it's just an annoying ticking sound. Not super noticeable when driving unless you really listen for it, but when near something parked up, or next to a car, the noise echoes against it, and it's really blood annoying. In the vid just listen for the constant tick noise that goes up with the RPMs. Just trying to figure out what it is, how to fix it, and if it's urgent. So far with a little bit of research on YouTube trying to match the sound, I've found it could be lifters or timing belt pulley/ idler https://youtu.be/w_6_NSCjT4I
  7. **Update** So it ended up being the fuel pump, I'm sure these symptoms would be the same with a faulty fuel pump, but turns out my problem was just because the pump hose that sits in the tank had ripped open due to how it was mounted to the bracket, so it was loosing a shit tonne of pressure. All fixed now and mounted correctly. I'll attach the before and after pics
  8. Haha okay so I was a dipshit and when I put it back on, I did it so when you press the accelerator, the little thing that would push the tps would not move at all, so the engine had no Signal coming from the tps at all lol. I took of the tps in line with the actual throttle body tensioner and all that. Got the car running nice now, idle is back to the old problem of being rough and still hesitates, but the car runs. Back to square one. I think it might be either afm or the ignition coil harness
  9. So why is it when the accelerator is pushed, it sounds like the engine is 80 years old and about to die? And would that also explain why the TCS and Slip light is on? Or is that a problem on it's own?
  10. Ok. So I've made another post about my car not idling properly, being generally rough and having hesitation when accelerating. Now, if you've seen my other post, you'll know that I've changed my spark plugs, put some spitfire coils in, cleaned the AFM and everything was running fine still. The car still ran and was drivable. Now, only since I took off the TPS and tried cleaning it, the car is no longer drivable. No freaking clue why my tps would do this, but now when I press the accelerator, the car almost dies. It's responding to the tps changing resistance, but it's as though it's being flooded with air or something. But when I press it, the idle doesn't go back up, it stays at that certain rpm range. The video of what I'm trying to explain is at the top. Really need some help as I need my car to at least be drivable for tomorrow. Cheers.

    Update 1,000,000: I've put spitfire coils in, literally no difference. I am lost. I have no idea what this could be now.
  12. Danowner

    Here's an update: so I've changed the spark plugs, used electric dialect on all coil packs and cleaned all of them. It must be just a faulty coil pack. I've also cleaned the AFM sensor with some contact cleaner. Literally no change in performance. This must narrow it down to be the coils. I'm looking to get some spitfire coil packs, might as well go all out as I'll be adding heavy mods soon.

    Also, just driving my car now, I'm experiencing really strong stutter when I'm upshifting, feels like turbo lag but turbo is hitting boost fine on the stock gauge. I'd explain it as stuttering but it's more of a hesitation, I'm shifting at about 5k, and it takes a good second to actually tourqe up again, and keep powering, hence why it feels like turbo lag, but yeah hitting high PSI fine

    Cheers heaps GTS boy, i did actually experience misfiring about a week or 2, took out 1 of the coils looked fine (was late and had to get somewhere), so I just put it all back together after checking 1. I was driving to 80km/hr and was in 2nd at about 5k RPM, car made what I can describe as a 2step firing noise, then kept going. That happened twice but under the same circumstances, never had a problem since. I checked the consult port for errors, and got code 55 which is 'no malfunction', so that's all clear. Just bought some throttle body cleaner, will get to all the air control valves when I get home. Really appreciate the help, and will keep this thread updated just in case anyone else has the same problem.
