    Unhappy Itching (Tuk tuk) sound in Cultus VXR 2007

    AoA,

    I have recently bought cultus VXR 2007, at the time of purchase i have got it checked from my Mechanic and after thorough analysis he passed the vehicle for purchase. I was very happy with my purchase, was running fine and smooth with that small noise (Available with every cultus engine).

    However, from last one week engine started to make some itchy voice like Tuk Tuk in a continuous manner, and it increases if i speed up the vehicle. I just drove it to mechanic and he said this kind of sound is almost available in every cultus (A company Fault) and to remove that we have to open it and have its tapets (he said dabbo, and according to him there are no tapets in cultus, i dnt know anything abt that) repaired on lathe machine!!!! However, he mentioned that it will not harm anything and u shall keep on driving the vehicle and let it repaired when u get free!


    Please guide me as i am not familiar with cultus engine ........... shall i get it repaired or keep on driving?? What kind of sound is this??? How much the repair may cost?? Please guide (The engine is three cylinder conventional cultus)

    No. 1, never ever do anything with the tappets...they are auto adjustable and mechanics cannot, yes CANNOT fix them on lathe, they will destroy it.

    About the itching sound...i have had cultus vxr.2007 for six years and never experienced that..the only screeching sounds it made was the loose generator belt which I had tightened from time to time.

    My advice is to change its timing belt and the associated bearings. That bearing might be the culprit.

    First make sure that the noise is of lifters.
    If yes then make sure that you put the exact amount of oil in the engine i.e 3.2L with oil filter change.
    Make sure that the lathe workers put the lifters in the same bore from which they came out during resurface.
    If you want noiseless engine then you need to change the lifters along with the cam.
