I have recently bought a corolla indus model 97/98 XEG 1300cc power pack but it has an issue. It's camshaft is making sound when I start engine in morning time but when engine gets heat up, then there is no any noise in engine. Can anybody let me know what will be its cost if I go to replace the camshaft. Also provide me details regarding its tuning and wheel alignment and wheel balancing cost. I am also looking for a proper mechanic in Karachi or I should go to Toyota western motors near Johar?
How did you isolate the noise is from the camshaft?
a worn camshaft wont go quiet when hot.
most likely the water pump, or alternator bearing(s) are about to die. chk you inbox please
the voice doesn't finish but there is little sound when car is heated up.
Thanks Capsat... but voice is coming from head side inside the tappet cover. Once my mechanic told me its camshaft but i don't him to work on it.
a worn cam will only get louder when the engine warms up.
can it happen that a rocker lose contact with the cam, i saw one lobe that looked like it wasn't making contact, judging from the deposits on it.
that would sounds like steel ball bearings in a can.
no nothing of that sort
will visit obama care to be sure
so if a cam lobe get damaged so complete cam will be changed or it is possible to replace the lobe only
P.s I know a complete camshaft wont cost much and separate lobe will be every hard to find but still
having same issue with my 2008 suzuki cultus....mchanic also told that ita the issue of camshaft.but i m not sure about that.the sound comes under the tappet cover.need experts advise to find the real fault.
It could either be a piston slap, oil strainer or the oil filter partially clogged.
