Jimny with engine knock.

Postby clubbing80s » Thu Jan 14, 2021 2:17 pm

Hi,
My Jimny had a tick that developed to an engine knock.
A short video of the engine https://youtu.be/DCPoHYkAo6I .

What is likely to be the issue? so far I have been advised it's a rod knock.

What would it cost to repair ?

Rather than send to the wreckers Id rather it goes to someone as a rebuild project, hopefully for a better offer than the wreckers.

Any thoughts /suggestions ?
Thanks
G

Hi,

Bit hard to tell from the video but sounds like it it coming from the top rather than the bottom. Maybe timing chain tensioner gone? Either way I wouldn't send it to the wrecker. Worth a reasonable amount of money still and those M series engines are dirt cheap (as they come in swifts also). Quick look on trademe and an m13a out of a swift is only $500 from a wrecker. Would need to swap a bunch of bits from your jimny motor to swift motor but not hard, and so worst case scenario is not that bad.

Thanks for that. I'll have a look at replacing the engine.
