    Hey everyone

    So just today I’ve changed the CAS, figured it was the sensor because it’s a new dfi module and still wouldn’t start.. anyway followed a thread on here as to how to change it. Put the new sensor in and she started but now there’s an awful ticking noise.

    I’m not sure if it’s the balancer or in the valvetrain like a low oil tick?
    Also I lost all clutch pedal feel until I topped the clutch reservoir up and ran for a minute..

    Any ideas about what’s going on? cheers

    Update:
    Changed the oil and got a new balancer and front seal. Still have the ticking though after a few minutes of idle it didn’t seem as bad
