FN2 engine whining
FN2 has had the release bearing noise for a while where it would chirp but then disappear as soon as you pressed the clutch pedal down. I was told that the noise isn't an issue and that you can still drive the car fine...the car didn't have any issues with shifting apart from the occasional common 3rd gear slip.
I drove from Newcastle to Bristol and back with no problems at all...on the way back I was using VTEC all the way up to 6th and showing BMW, Audi & Merc drivers where to go all the way home. Few days after I got home I noticed a slight loss of bottom end power and just knew something wasn't quite right.
The car is due an oil change even though the oil itself isn't very black.
Its got to the point now where I can hear an abnormally noticeable engine whine as I accelerate (louder on cold startup in the mornings)....then if I sit in idle and listen carefully I can hear a slight knocking noise but only from the inside.
The release bearing noise has also started to disappear by itself....it may take longer to come about though.
I'm changing the oil and transmission fluid in the next couple of days...hopefully this will sort it
ANYONE GOT ANY OTHER IDEAS OR HELP/INFO/ADVICE??
