Hi all, I'm dealing with a rattling noise from the front end of my 1FZ. 190,000 miles and no idea if it's ever been serviced other than belts and exterior stuff when I bought it 3 years ago. I'm thinking it's the chain and/or tensioner, but not for sure. I'm obviously looking at having the front end of the engine pulled apart to find and fix the issue, and having the oil/water pump done at the same time while it's apart. I'm thinking the cost of this is going to get to the point where I might as well have the damn thing re-built, or find one that has already been rebuilt and swap it out. I've found a few places online that advertise rebuilt long blocks, but I'm wondering if anyone has had dealings with any company offering re-built 1FZs or can recommend a good company. I'm in Canada, which is going to be lovely for shipping, but I need to weigh out all options.
