Hey guys, issue with the '93 400e.
My father was driving the E last week and on the way back home the car made loud noises.
I wasn't there but he said it was a lot of noise, louder than the audio clip I've linked below.
He said it did not affect drivability and drove home slowly.
Here's a link to a recording of the noise.(forum upload won't take the file format)
Car will not start(I only cranked it for a split second to show the noise).
The car is in great shape for its age, about 80k miles. A lot of service history.
As far as my guess, perhaps the timing chain guide rails have disintegrated?
What do you guys think
