hello everyone :)
so, last week timing belt and water pump was changed, then oil and filter was suppose to be changed the following morning but there was a bit of a f*ck up! instead of draining the engine oil from sump, gear oil was drained, and engine was still filled up by 3 litres..car was driven like this for 2 days then the mistake was corrected, gearbox filled with fresh oil and engine completely emptied then filled with fresh oil..everything is perfect except theres a rattling kinda noise from the head which goes away about 1900-2000 revs..from what im told this is the tappets, as a result of the bad old change? and im told theres a way to fix this, can somebody please help me on this? thanks in advance :)

How was the gear oil drain mistaken from the sump stud? Did a garage do the work?

My thoughts exactly!

If this was done by a garage I assume it was located way out in the wild wild west!
I wonder if the mechanic had a little indian friend called tonto & was his mode of transport called Silver??? :lol:

no it wasnt done by garage, was done by an amateur mechanic, it was a genuine mistake he couldnt beleive he had done it himself, it was a friend who done the work for free so i cant complain

so any ideas?

Should be 5w40 fully.
Was the engine rattling before the belt was done?

What a debacle.... on my

My first thought was possibly the timing belt tensioner... have heard they rattle if not put on correctly, which if done by the same chap who mistook the engine sump drain for the gearbox is most likely.

to put it simply, it has the wrong oil in it. Go buy some 5w40 fully synthetic and a new oil filter. Drain the system completely, replace oil filter and refill using the new oil.
Problem is the damage may have already been caused

gearbox or engine damage... a gearbox with no oil means parts with no lubrication causing friction, teeth damage, gear damage, wear etc

An engine with too much oil can also cause problems... gaskets or seal leaks for one

you need the correct oil in the engine ASAP, the damage i was on about was too much oil creates high oil pessure, plus you have the wrong oil int the engine so every time its running its creating more damage.
Also as said above a gearbox with no oil is very very bad, your gears and diff etc etc will have suffered from this mistake. It might take a while for the effects to come to ligh but there has been untold wear on these mechanical parts.

there are no gearbox noises at all anyway..my only problem at the mo is the rattle from the head, seems to be coming from drivers side of the head
Same side as the timing belt, I urge you to check the tensioner. School boy error not using the right torque = rattle = possible damage in future
