    Default Engine Requires Major Maintenance Crank and tappet

    I have a suzuki khyber with a Cultus carburetor enigne. It was making weird noises as if someone took its silencer off. I got it checked from a mechanic and he said that the car has work in crank( it is cracked) and tappet and a hefty estimate of 20k. It gave no indication of trouble like reduced oil, heat up etc. I daily check its water level and that is not reduced as well. I have also observed black oil (although I filled in a quarter liter of oil on the advice of same mechanic just a week ago). I know the oil is due to be changed but I am confused because if the engine does indeed need that work my money on oil change will be wasted. The car is running with the same loud noises for over 2 weeks now. Please help

    And I forgot to mention fuel consumption is also normal ( well above 13kms/liter). Please help as I need to take the decision ASAP.

    Which oil you topped up? Was it packed or khulla oil?

    its right from the start... sort of loud garr garr. and remains uniform throughout, just slight increase with accelerator but as it is very loud from the start so unnoticeable increase in volume

    I use havoline 20w50 havoline. One slight shift in my routine was that last time I used some other filter instead of 'guard filter' while changing oil. Although I never use a filter other than 'GUARD' but at that time I was in a hurry so compromised for some other brand(can't exactly remember the name; may be some SUZUKI filter). I never use khula oil... that extra half liter is also poured in front of me after opening the 3 liter packing(because I always buy from the same shop) BUT last time I got oil change from someone else. So can the last OIL change be the culprit here??

    Thanks guys for your kind reply. Another thing I forgot to mention; at least I can't see any sort of smoke while watching it in afternoon sun
