Re: Glenn............Strange Engine Noise.
I'm probley the wrong Glenn But I'll give it a go, The engine in question is a toyota 22R? Or is it a zuke stock engine? either way sounds like it is time for a compression test and check your oil pressure. The trick with
the long screwdriver (Ala Rangerrick ) is to replace a stehascope. Very usefull. If your compression is low
for whichever engine it is, squirt some oil in each cylinder (Just one or two pumps from a can) and try again.
If the compression jumps up then the rings are tired and it could be time for a rebuild/replacment.
if your oil pressure is low then it could be your bearings.. Have you changed your oil lately? what did it look like?
Hows your timing?
