Guys / Gals,
I figure this question might have been previously asked but searched on the forums as well as on Google and can't locate any similarities or solutions. I have had my van for over a year now and thankfully only doing 11,100km's. Last went in to service at about 10,6000km's, before serviced I noticed the engine had gotten abit louder with regard to engine clatter. After service I noticed everything died down dramatically however, 500km's later and I can hear the noise from the engine increase again.
To specify, starts of nice and idles perfect, van drives like a baby but after driving form Couva to San Fernando and back, before shut-off I notice the noise is heavy. If I go to the grocery and back it sounds like I just rolled out of the show room.
I don't know if this has previously been answered but any advice will be greatly appreciated. Based on the last service, I noticed they adjusted valves (complete service) but unclear if that's the solution and appropriate cause (valves). Is this a common problem or just problem specific to my van?
Owned a 2008 Mitsubishi L200 before with no similarities to this (regarding the noise after driving the mentioned distance).
Again any advice will be greatly aprpeciated as the next service is a few months away.
