Took my car into the garage today to have an oil and filter change.. and my mate found a leak in the crankshaft oil seal on the offside of the car.
He said that while i was getting that replaced as the seal is only a few quid but the cambelt has to come off i might aswell get the cambelt done which i will do.
Anyone know what price i will be expecting to pay, parts+labour?
Oh and about the tapping noise, it sounds like a van. Since the oil and filter change its got better but still there. Its louder the colder the engine.
When i pull away in 1st gear, the tapping starts about 2000revs, same in second at 2000revs, and in third but alot less tapping, then fourth its basically gone, and 5th no tapping. What is it??
