Chasing down a loud engine knock in a Land Cruiser
From time to time I do work on cars other than Mercedes Benz. Sometimes it is painful and in the process, it reminds me why I like working on Mercedes. So was the case when I took on working on a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser with a loud engine knock. This knock piqued my interest because it sounded like it was moving around in the engine. At first, it sounded like something in the valve train.
