As per the title, I cracked my head by driving the car when I shouldn't have and ended up with a reco head and new radiator :roll: .


Like most I6's I've heard when I start it you can hear them for about a sec until the oil gets moving and then they quiet down.


Anyway, now its running well again I have noticed when the engine has warmed up and been running for a while the HLA's (I think) are quite loud, could this be due to the cracked head and the subsequent gunk that it created?


Cheers
