Wow Iím really bummed out here.
Install all the parts timing gear timing chain water pump chain tensioner, Fired up the engine started right up no problem but that same knocking nose is still there! Iím at a lost right now. Need some help here? I really thought the changing out all of that stuff would have done the trick. It was such a mess in there. So where do I start now? Still not sounding like a rod knock to me but hey after all I just did what do I knowÖ I do remember just before the nock I was hearing a nose like the timing was off or maybe the sound of compress air maybe a advance sparking in the cylinder . I did a quick compression check cold engine dry 3 passes and came up with cly#1 195,195,195 cly #2-195,195,195 cly#3-150,160,170, and cly#4-190,190,190 does this mean anything to anyone? For those of you that know this engine 2.4L VinT 1997 buick can you give me any heads up on this?
