Name isXXXXX goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

Looks like the balance shaft has sized , remove the Radiator and pull
out the shaft and check the shaft for damage ,bearings Damage ect .

Have a engine in the shop being repaired ,i notice there was no balance shaft belt fitted at all ,called the customer and he said he removed it 3 years ago ?? 45.000 km driven with out any problems , but not saying this is good as you will start to have engine vibration on low rpm .

But yes you can run without the balance shaft , oil pump is run off the crankshaft and not the balance shaft belt like many think.

If you are still having issue with this issue then please get back to me with the reply button and not the poor or bad replay button so i can assist you further with this issue, or pass you on to another expert.
