I would certainly appreciate any ideas! As a retired body-man, I know enough to handle collision related mechanics, and I build my engines for my older cars trucks and bikes. This thing is simply over my head. So, the first start after replacing starter was normal but took quite a while for pressure to kick in. (As long as I ve owned it, this has never happened, but there has always been chatter from the top end.) Once it built pressure, it idled smoothly and sounded fine. Then a strange grinding or crunching cane up and then ding , then check gauges in the info center, followed by a total loss of pressure at the gauge, followed by audible loss of pressure. I tried a few more times, before giving up. The grinding sound comes in after about 10 seconds of smooth, quiet idle. After this sound stops it s a matter 2-3 seconds before pressure loss. I m stumped.
