Hi Mike


Sorry to not have replied before - I've been in Spain for a few days.


Following flushing an intermitant clunk can be heard.




Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
Hello again Richard -

Thank you for your reply - thats ok.

Would you say this clunk noise is in the very top of the engine - in the rocker cover?

Is it running ok otherwise? No odd noises / no oil light on?

Hello again Richard -

I replied to you as showing above, just 2 hours after you replied saying you had been away on Spain - I was awaiting then more info from you - I have not received anything back from you on that for 6 days plus since until now - I need the info I ask for to be able to help you / direct you properly.

It seems you have gone ahead and removed the engine with no proper tests as to why you have the problem you have - it needed to be done while the engine was in situ and could be properly checked /tested.

Again, Im sorry I cannot help if you don't reply to me with the answers to the info I ask for.. I will be happy to help more if you need but I do need this to be a two way situation.

So let me know if you need anything more.

Meantime, Id appreciate your clicking on the OK ratings for my credit for my time etc - Thank you.

Kind Rgds, MIKE.
