Engine Mechanical problem
1989 BMW 325 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
Broke timing belt. Sent head off for rebuild. Mechanic said pistons had no damage. Mechanic installed rebuilt head and the engine is now incredibly loud (sounds like a diesel). However, the engine runs smooth and has more power than before the rebuild.
The noise is continuous and loud at all RPMs and whether the car is cold or warm.
What is the most likely cause of this noise?
