Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Dakota 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 220, 00 miles
recently in am very slight engine knock sounded like quiet lifter. By afternoon, very prominent and noisy lifter type knock. Found broken timing chain tensioner and fixed with all new parts, dropped pan, cleaned, still same noise. Removed distributor, turned oil pump with screw driver, noisey, but pumps fine. Could knock be wristpin or other? All gauges read normal. Does this 2.5 4-cyl, have a typical engine problem that is terminal? Thanks, frank. Frankatsurfworks@cox. Net
have the same problem?
