Grinding metal sound from engine

Postby R3D » Mon Mar 16, 2020 6:46 pm

Been going off for a while now. Grinding metal sound from engine when accelerating. Seems to be more in low revs. Any ideas?

Also worth mentioning its low revs but high load

Does the noise happen when in neutral as well as in gear? That would eliminate a transmission.

Also, can you record the noise and post it here?

No only when moving under load in low revs. Seems to be more in 3rd and 4th gear. And yeah I'll try record it later today
