Engine Noise??

Postby Bubbles-Tezza » Mon Jul 20, 2009 6:42 pm

Bit of a problem guys, lately ive been hearing a pinging (valves chattering) pinking sound coming from my engine, i havent done anything to it or modified it. It only happens when goin up a hill at a steady low rev! Its not the engine labouring! Im using the same fuel all the time from the same filling station!!
This ever happen any1 before or does anybody have a solution.
Car running on 95 octance all the time..

Il try get a sound clip up!!!
Engine never run low on oil always regular serviced and not burning a drop of oil!!
Just an idea, would it be low octane causing it, i thought tezzas could take standard unleaded?

A knocking noise when the car is under pressure going up hill could either be oil or fuel starvation!!!
Does you oil gauge go down when this happens?
Ya altezza can take the standard fuel, but you will probably find you trottle body gets more clogged up.
Its no harm to use it just that ur aware of it.
