So far have removed belt + tensioner (started car only for a short period) but still made the noise.
All heat shields have been removed. Pre-cats were in good condition checked previously then gutted them while i checked. Rocker cover seal changed and checked timing chain tension which seemed ok but i didnt spin it around, not sure if you need to to be 100%?
Looking through forums+youtube are pointing to all different potential issues. Thought id come to the forums with the noise before proceeding. What do you think??
It has been losing oil some how although no visible leaks or smoke coming from exhaust, oil level lower than id have liked it to be (probably about 2-2.5L when i drained tank excluding filter) when i dropped it out + refilled but oil light had not come on prior.
