i have an EVOIV Lancer,and it has started knocking on the top end! Ihave replaced the tappets but the noise is still there.it has good oil pressure, and seems to run ok, but this noise is very loud and cannot see any problems inside the top end. the oil ways are clear to the top and oil is visable on all moving parts. please help me

cheers Chrismonk.

Last time I heard of anything like this was on my Cossie - timing out allowed valves to clip tops of pistons !!

Got away with it but only just

Suggest timing check required

The noise dosent get any louder when you rev the car, but it speeds up.
A lot of mechanics have looked at the car, and they all say it sounds like a tappet, but we have replaced them all.

Does sound like a little end but then it could be something as simple as a bearing in the air con pump etc.
If the tappets have all been done one of your local mechanics should be able to diagnose some options. Where are you in the country?
