WtK Looking for reputable /knowledgeable mechanic for GV

Postby TRDGUY » March 15th, 2018, 9:27 pm

As the post states , I have been experiencing a abnormal ticker/ticking at about 2-3k rpm on my GV 2007 j20a engine ( noise seems to be coming from the top of the engine but internally )

I’ve done at the beginning of the year the following PM using Genuine Suzuki parts.

Timing chain ,valve seals , tensioners , guides, rear seal , torque converter seal , engine mounts , changed transmission oil , spark plugs , clean injectors , throttle body etc .

Engine starts and idles like a charm no noise or vibrations , no loss in power or loss in oil levels ( not like the GV is the most powerful of suvs) nevetheless the noise have progressively gotten worse even though I’ve the changed oil since it was about due to changing anyways.

I’m in need of a mechanic who can identify the root cause of this noise and resolve it ,no guess work .
Just to get some recommendations from you experienced guys.

Sounds like the valve clearances are off. Have them rechecked.

Just an update on this issue ,

It was in fact worn connecting rod bearings , problem seemed to be ineffeficient oil pressure as the pump seals were not the best and possibly the main cause of the tappet noise in this regard. . Bearings replaced and pump overhauled.

No work was done to the head or valve clearances .

Engine is quiet as a lamb again.

I wouldn't recommend Big Z, guys.
I carried Suzuki Liana based on recommendations on this forum.
After 7 days I got back completely messed up car. The car doesn't even start.
Please be careful when you recommending someone.
At the end of the day , it does affect severely someone life.
