LiteAce Van 1997 Diesel 2C engine

Recommended Posts

Hi From New Zealand 🙂

This is my Van - Just gone 107,000km believe it or not!

New cam-belt and water pump with all the belts done. $1100

First drive and i now have a loud rattle/tinkering sound. Like a "Ball bearing in a tin can" - changes with speed on the road. 😞

Mechanic says that its probably the Tappets?

Prior to the repair no noise like this at all!

Q: did the new belts increase the pressure on parts including the camshaft to force this to occur?

Why now then if this is the origin?

Since i cant do the mechanical work in the vehicle its just more cost...


Thanks in advance on your thoughts.
