Gday,

VN 3.8ltr V6, 241K on tacho, engine issue.

while running theres a ticking and light/minor occasional thump sounds coming from engine. Started 3 nights ago, havn't driven since. Looking at engine, coming from top right side, suspect the Sparkies or injectors. Pulling sparkies tonight to clean and inspect. Any theories or others experianced this prob before.

Cars on LPG and Petrol, dont know if this eng. prob happens on gas too cause its outta gas and running on Petrol atm, and as mentioned, hasn't been driven since the issue started, so havn't taken to fill up on LPG to see if it happens on as well.

Thx,

James

lol found out ... about 3 days later my alternator completely tore itself apart from the inside out, and one of my sparkies failed.

Oil change once every 2 months.
