I think it’s important to mention that the noise from under the hood is still there, and note; no Check Engine Light (the function works, came on when one of the spark plugs was removed for servicing).
When I went for computer diagnosis, code P0016 and P0017 came up which could be erased, but set back.
An oil change was performed yesterday to a synthetic 5W-30 oil, right fill, the filter was changed and the sump was opened to clean the oil pump mesh. The VVT Solenoid/sensor was cleaned off clogs, the air filter was observed and cleaned, the spark plugs too were cleaned, but with all that done, the rattling/tapping noise like of a chain, on the passenger side of the car from under the hood persists and the car does not pick up/accelerate correctly still, also there is a lot of noise (generally) maybe from transmission shifting delay or so, like the car is under an opposite directional drag. The most annoying thing is, there is still no check engine light.
I plan to service the transmission soon.
Additionally the car was earlier diagnosed to have exhaust Restrictions by one of my local mechanics and the catalytic converters housing were opened up and the content were emptied, the container was closed back up/welded and the exhaust reinstalled without catalytic converters, pending when I can afford a replacement. I still have doubts the catalytic converters were due for a change anyways. Their claims was that, back pressure was the cause for the low engine power which was my complaint from the start.
have the same problem?
