  1. I get the same thing. I have to turn up the volume quite a bit with my tranzit.
  2. Ah yes. Mine only have 39k on them. So yes 60k would not be an improvement. The corteco ones are more expensive. I think the Beck ones in that link are stock replacent and a OEM supplier.
  3. Are these good quality motor engine mounts to retain stock feel? I want to keep them original. They look like a good deal? (Posted on Rennlist too) http://m.ebay.com/itm/181668015259?_mwBanner=1
  4. Thanks Martini. That's what I was thinking too. Sounds like heat rising at stop lights and causing some plastic or metal popping from expansion.
  5. Totally get that issue but it's just an idler pulley the stand off and the mounting bolt is the same. The ID of the bearing and the OD of the pulley with offset. Just saying. It's only an idler pulley.
  6. Those seem so expensive for an idler pulley. Can't we source an idler pulley from another car, same size? I think I remember my idler pulleys for my mustang to be about $20 or less.
  7. Interesting. I put the NGK laser OEM replacement iridiums in. Seem ok to me so far. 5,000 miles. Hey have a disc of iridium instead of a needle point and four ground electrodes. Similar to OEM.
  8. How do you know that your cylinders are scored? Nice to know that the heater core isn't as bad as some car's heater cores!
  9. More info. Only occurs as the vehicle is coming up to temperature. Cold doesn't happen and completely warm it doesn't happen. This is leading me to believe some thermal expansion issue.
  10. FYI, just changed oil 100 miles ago, no metal. I*S changed 3,500 miles ago incase people jumped right in that.
  11. https://vimeo.com/111216115. Here it is. I highlight just after the pop. Seems to come from the front of the car possibly but cabins can play tricks on the direction of the sound.
  12. Typically I do my all my own work, but might be an option. It doesn't sound serious, but it is odd and random it seems.
  13. I am thinking it might be thermal expansion as the car warms up and the hot coolant starts flowing to the cold 40 degree piping and radiators. I took a video and I will see if it is discernible and can post it.
