I removed both valve covers thinking I would find a broken or stuck lifter. I did not. Next I removed the timing cover to examine the water pump. I removed the timing chain and using a drill, I connected it to the water pump. Spinning it at 2,000 rpm's produced no noies.
I am thinking it might have spun a rod or main bearing. Before I remove the pan I thought I would check with anyone that might have experienced a similar broblem. The reason I am hesitent on pulling the pan is. The sound does not sound like a blown rod bearing. Could it be an oil pump? Any other ideas?
have the same problem?
