I had just under gone a Bearing Knock on my engine, therefore I had to re-do the engine, in this process I changed the crankshaft and pistons in this car. I also sorted all the oil leaks out as well.

However I have driven this car approximately 700 kilometres and a few more problems have surfaced up. Every time I accelerate I hear a TUK TUK sound coming from the engine area, also should I exceed the 110 km/ph there is a heavy shudder on my steering, and when I lock the steering wheel the car switches off. And every time when I press the breaks a squeaky sound appears.

What are the cause of these problems?

As far as the noise from the engine, make sure there are no exhaust leaks at the manifold or the exhaust.

For the vibration, check tire balance

Check brakes for wear and possible glazing.

Hi thank u for ur reply.

I hav a branch n freeflow exhaust system, however I did not change the oil after they had done the engine.
