YRV top end engine rattle.

Forum: 

I have a 52 plate YRV with 33K miles.Up untill now the engine has been sweet as a nut, almost silent on tickover.Then suddenly a light rattle started. It sounds like the timing chain (if it has a chain and not a belt)i've just ordered the manual to see what is in there.
Anyone had experiance of this problem?

Is yours a 1.3? The

Is yours a 1.3? The 1.3's have a chain the 1.0 ltr's have a belt.
If it is a 1.3, like wifesyellowyrv says above, check previous posts and if its the same problem we all have, then welcome onboard!! Smile
Check the small pencil filter, change the oil to 10w/40, flush it(at your own risk) and if that fails get on to Daihatsu UK technical and consult them. They told me they are interested to know of problems and will do their best to help.

Top end Rattle.

2003 Sirion 1.3 4 Track. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

I have had a Sirion 1300 SL (Engine M100)and now have the Sirion 1300 4 Track (Engine M101)

They both have a cam chain. Smile

Neither the first, or the one I have now has had a top end rattle!!

I use Fully Synthetic 5/40 Oil.

I did look at the pencil filter on the last service (Which I do myself now) It was as clean as a whistle.

I would have thought if it was an oil problem to the tappets when cold, that the thinner the oil the better for the flow properties.
Anyway that is my two penneth. This has been a discussion on here for a long time now. Iv'e yet to hear a Daihatsu engine with this rattle. Complete mystery !! :?:-?:
