Need LandRover tech for this one - engine noise
Engine has noise which sounds like a rattle / sort of knock and may have a plastic on plastic sound, fairly loud and very heard to track the origin. Seems to be loudest if I place the tip of a screwdriver on the aluminum intake manifold of the front bank. Noise is there hot or cold. I understand there is a problem with upper plenum intake manifold runners making noise but this is quite loud but yet not so clear to say it is being caused by a piston or cam. Put the screwdriver on the block and the noise is not loudest. Only toward the upper part of the manifold. If I place the screwdriver on the plastic plenum the noise is there in some places but not in other places. Anyone mess with this before and were unsure what to condemn?
