Hi, everyone !
Glad to join You all right here, this will be my ever first thread to share with You !
We have a 244DL with B23A under the hood and correct me if I am wrong but I’ve read that this particular one has a distinctive thing over the B19/B21 engines aside from the capacity which is the Two water Plugs on both sides of the block, to make it clear and in brief We used to have 20W50 oil lubing it instead of the standard 10W30 all for being overpriced (not here to bring my drama) and was left in for a year and couple of weeks that when changed it seemed to lose its characteristics and it’d shear (certainly it Would after this long), back to the basic issue whenever this engine is cold started, I can hear some violent knocks noise that doesn’t last for minute but later on it got worse and it actually lasted way longer than It used to that It takes a long while about over (5 minutes) and still to get quieter, it worths mentioning that I can also hear some rattling sound afterwards when idling at about 750-800 RPM.
started to get skeptical about the oil pump, Crankshaft main bearings, Camshaft Bearings.
Any ideas or pieces of advice on this one and I’ll be Grateful, Thanks
