slight engine raddle,top end noise, also problems with ping
I bought my E35o a 96, on a windy day 2008, so i didnt hear a slight dinging or raddle, a sound similar to light throttle pinging but its not that. It sounds light ,like top end, piston slap, or wristpin, smallend rod something making a light raddle. I call it darkly,"the dinner bell" sound. You really here it most driving next to a wall slight incline lower speed. light to med throttle.
like the soft shallow hills of Pacific grove. Its been doing this for 30 k miles now but it bothers me. cant tell if its getting worse. Its definitely not getting better. The Van also developed a problem with, intermittent pinging or detinataion under light throttle, ANOTHER SOUND obviously, but doesnt do it all the time. Smetimes putting my foot in it will clear it. The dinner bell sound is always there light throttle, slight incline. Yes i use premium to rule out that.
