    3.3 engine noise

    My Jato 3.3 has been making a rattling noise. I thought it was my clutch but when I removed the clutch and started the engine the noise was still there. When I put pressure on the drive shaft with the engine running the noise stops. The drive shaft also has some movement up and down. Would it be safe to say the engine bearings are worn out.

    Its hard to determine what the rattle is coming from for us Inless u post a video of the noise...these things can have all kinds of rattling noises, but if u think its coming from the tranny/diff, then the best thing to do is to open her up and check for any signs of anything loose, bearings, gears etc...refer to your exploded views, for location of bearings/gears and for dissasembly and reassembly.

    I took the engine apart and the bearings and crank were shot. I went and bought a new replacement 3.3.
