Recently my 1999 G20 had started making a metalic grinding noise coming from under the VC. I took it to the mechanic (Infiniti Dealership) and they said that it is normal for a SR20DE to make that kind of noise when it has 80k+ miles... *sniff* *sniff* Smells like bullshit *sniff* *sniff*.

The noise sounds like scraping a metal pipe on cement.

Oh --- -but they sure did find lots of other stuff wrong!

Starter needs replacing
AC Compressor needs replacing
Transmition might need replacing
.... More....

What is this engine noise - I really need info on this ASAP. Thanks

Check if you have a OEM Nissan filter on it. In the next oil change use 10w30 if it doesn't helps then you'll need to change the chain guides and tensioner *19 and 20*

New Starter
New Compressor for AC (+ something else for AC)
They did something with the Transmition and changed fluid
Fixed the noise from under the VC.

I'm not really sure what all they did - I'll go check the recipt later.

Either way - good as new :)
