Before i start this thread i do not have a spun or thrown bearing, it is simply worn and needs to be replaced.
After countless hours of trying to find out what was making my car have a weird noise i got a mechanic to come out and take a look at it, he said its neither a spun bearing or a thrown one because it would be undrivable, i can still drive the car and he said its just worn, he said i can either leave it and not drive it under heavy load or take the engine out and replace it myself.
I have a 2010 Hyundai genesis 2.0t model that i will be pulling the engine out, instead of replacing the whole engine for 2k i decided that i will just replace the failing bearing, the noise isnt some crazy knock or slap like ive seen before and all it is, is a small rattle, i took a jump over to the car forums and they are all insisting that i just replace the engine and i don’t have the money to do that and honestly they are just being assholes about the whole thing. (thats what i get for having a tuner i suppose)
What i will be doing is pulling the engine out since the #4 cylinder cannot be reached by just dropping the oil pan so im forced to remove the whole engine from the car and get underneath it. Now i understand that the crank or the journal might be bad so im expecting to replace that if its in bad shape and not usable.
What i plan on doing is removing the bearing and seeing if i need to compensate it with using an oversized bearing IF NEEDED or just getting a factory one, with that being said is it actually possible to just replace this worn bearing and be good to go or is the engine totally toast like previous people have told me… I need some advice on what to do or the steps i need to do before starting this… Any help is recommended.
