    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    Honestly, I was happy with my experience with them. After spending a fair amount of time at the shop, I had conversations with just about every one of the techs who very evidently live and breathe these things. The owner Cesar was very personable and was communicative the whole time, even...

    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    This is long past due - but here's an update for anyone that comes across this issue down the line: It was a failed rod bearing. Like I said, I changed the oil and miraculously didn't find anything substantial BUT when the guys at Cruiser Tech in Orange County, CA dropped the upper pan, they...

    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    OK folks - the update Due to time, I pulled a sample and sent it to Blackstone. The sample very clearly had glitter in it unfortunately.. Report is attached. States high levels of moisture (but not antifreeze) which is interesting, but the oil isn't milky. High levels of aluminum, copper and...

    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    @BILT4ME a miscommunication means the shop hasn’t actually done that yet. Should be happening shortly. But the car has made this noise as long as I’ve owned it and when I changed the oil a couple of months ago, I didn’t see any glitter or anything and there was definitely nothing major that...

    Just got off the phone with K&H (the shop). Here's the update: Thank you @gummycarbs I gave them your suggestion as well for flex plate, and they said it is certainly not coming from there. Pulled power steering pump - no change And timing is OK They've isolated the sound to the bottom middle...

    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    That’s interesting. My only thought is that it hasn’t thrown any codes. Is it possible for either knock sensor to be faulty without throwing a code?

    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    Thanks for the quick reply! You're right I haven't sent anything off yet, this was much more of visual, feel, and magnet "tests." The next step will be to send something off. The shop that currently has it says that they tested actual oil pressure and it's ok. I luckily have stuck to Toyota...

    FZJ80 Knock or Ticking warm, higher RPM

    Hey Mud, SO I've had this sound on my 94 FZJ80 since I picked the thing up 6 months or so ago. When I got the car, it had a misfire and a few other random creaks, and initially it sounded to me like a loose exhaust shield or something similar that could be sorted out as the car was brought back...
