Grinding, scraping noise at idle.
Help! I spent a weekend working on the car to change out a few things...
-Crankshaft Position sensor (diagnostic reader said so)
-Oil pan gasket (leaking oil)
-O2 sensor (previous code a while back, only changed one after cat. cause that was the problem. Changed before the cat since exhaust was off for oil pan removal)
That was the original plan, changed it all (CPS change REALLY sucked) and when I started the car horrible grinding and scraping sound. Before anyone asks yes I did put oil in the engine
Car didn't start again. I did get another signal on my reader to change the Camshaft sensor. So I changed that along with the distributor rotor. It starts now but still makes that same grinding, scraping sound. Can timing be affected that bad from sensor changes? Seriously, thinking about dropping the oil pan again cause I am wondering if something fell inside before I put it back on. It sounds that bad!
