    Default Daihatsu Charade 1985 Engine Noise (I'm confused to either replace/repair the engine)

    Hey guys need your valuable suggestions regarding my Charade '85.
    Its been some time I've have overhauled my car but sadly the Mechanic said the car is good to run but the noise from the lower end and the head end is too much.
    As I've personally supplied every item to mechanic for replacing during Engine overhaul....but lastly the Engine's sound is like Diesel Car.
    some say its the head bore problem others say its the camshaft or main bigen.
    Although the car runs efficient and oil average and fuel consumption is way too good.....
    BUT THE ENGINE SOUND IS IRRITATING......
    Although the rocker arms were then afterwards replaced as the mechanic said.
    But still the sound. I think becoz of many the engine Head is worn out and even if I replace rings etc. they will again worn out.
    Had a mechanic at Gutter Baghicha baloch area, saying that I need to replace the main Engine Assembly only.
    My mechanic says (After spending 25k)....Replace the Engine from SherShah....
    Need your suggestions replies soon please...!!!
    I'm confused to either replace the engine or better to fix it further.

    the daihatsu CB has full circle camshaft bearings which require a good machinist to install replacement shells and perform a line bore on. I only know of 1 machinist in Karachi who invested in this tooling for the CB engine. The name of the shop is Salman Engineering.

    If the head is not corroded or damaged then do the line bore and measure the rockers and shafts, also make sure the camshaft is not worn out. The lower end is not that hard, it just has a balancer in it as addition. If your mechanic would have done a good job as recommended by the manufacturer the engine would sound like new.
