24 Valve lash adjustment? noise/sound???

Recommended Posts

When I did my valve lash adjustment I did not have a barring tool so I used the alternate method to turn the engine backwards using a ratchet and socket on the alternator...

Here is my question/comment... I turned engine till I got TDC (everything was nice and smooth and quiet) did the valve adjustments then started turning engine to get to BDC... while I was turning everything was smooth and quiet and all of a sudden I start to hear a clicking noise every time I would turn over the engine... the sound persisted for about 5 or 6 turns on the rachet and then stopped... I never heard it again after that...

It noise/clicking sounded like it was coming from the aft bottom of the eng block oil pan/starter area...

Ever since then I have had a lumpy idle at startup issues... :banghead:

I wonder if I damaged something internal...:cry:

Crank sensor come apart? Crank tone wheel coming loose? :shrug:

I have a cam & crank sensor on order... should be here at the end of this week... I am going to install the crank sensor first and see if the start up IDLE LOPE goes away... if not then I will install the cam sensor and see if it goes away.

In the mean time... my plan is to drop the starter and remove the current CRANK SENSOR... inspect it for damage and then boroscope into the hole to have a look around... (tone ring/wheel?)

DO YOU know what I should be seeing? Is the TONE RING/Wheel right there in view?

Is the tone ring/wheel what the Crank Sensor is censing / picking up in order to do its job? :think:

I pulled crank sensor out tonight... took me about 15 mins. I just unbolted the starter and moved it forward enough that I could get the senor out...:hyper: INSPECTED: NO DAMAGE. :thumbup2:

Going to boroscope tomorrow night to look for missing hardware, looseness and missing teeth on the Tone Ring.
