Hi i have something very wrong with my car, i'm getting a loud rattling/knocking noise comming from my engine. At first i thought it was a loose bolt or something like that because i had recently fitted an HKS Circle earthing kit and the noise had started from when it was fitted. I had tightened up all the bolts on all of the earth cables and made sure they weren't touching any moving parts that could have caused a noise. But that didn't stop the problem.
About two weeks ago i noticed a very faint rattle that would always happen when i reached around 3000rpm . So after driving for about a week at slow speeds and low revs the noise was gradually getting louder , i looked under the bonnet with the engine running and tried to identify where it was comming from, but there wasn't any noise ?? even when i revved it up a little. But after a 'spirited' drive today the noise has reached a very loud level which can be heard constantly even when the car isn't moving. It has also gained a bit of a 'squeek' aswell and now i've decided not to drive it but to try and find a good garage to take it to , preferably one that is experienced with Skylines. The noise doesn't appear to be comming from the turbos but from the actual engine itself, could it be the crankshaft? or the tappets? I really need help with this.

Can anybody hazard a guess at what it could be? or can anyone recommend a good specialist to take it to? Any help is much apreciated! Thank you

Sounds like you've spun a shell, as for a garage it depends where you are.
Great looks like it'll be off the road for a while then , i'm based in Hampshire so Rising Sun would be the best option for me as i'd probably get trailored there... a hefty sum of cash going into sorting out i reckon :rolleyes: . Thanks anyway
