If you got BZG or BZR with 4A-GE black top engine then you have 20V and variable valve timing which changes automatically on high rpm (5k – 8k) making a strange noise not normal for standard 8V or 16V engines. Of course it’s better to have a mechanical check since you got it a few days ago.

dont worry about it, unless you can here it from inside the car. ive had 2 silvertops and they both sounded tractor-like on start up.

I have a Levin BZ-G AE111 with 4A-GE 20V black top and it makes the same strange noise. You will get to use it.

hey mate id take it to the mechanic and get the timing checked it. or maybe you've got hydrolic tapets is the noise there all the time or just when you put your foot down and on startup?

I was looking at a car the other day with this problem.Is it down to the tapets??Its On start up and when your driving her!

It goes away when you give it a small bit of throttle but when you accelerate it comes back.Doing my nut.....
