Customer Question

I TOOK MY TOWNCAR BACK TO DEALER AND ASKED WHY DOES THE ENGINE TAP FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES
WHEN ITS COLD. CAR WAS THERE
FOR 2 DAYS AND ALL HE COULD TELL ME WAS THAT IT WAS A BAD HEAT SHIELD MAKING THE NOISE, AND THAT
HE COULD MAKE IT GO AWAY BY
REPLACING ALL 4 OF THEM FOR $385.
AND THAT NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH THE ENGINE. i HAD IT BACK
TWICE FOR SAME REASON, AND HE SAID THAT WHEN THE WEATHER IS WARM IT WON'T MAKE THAT NOISE
ANYMORE. MAYBE I SHOULD MOVE
TO FLORIDA THEN? IS THIS TRUE
ABOUT HEAT SHIELDS?

Hello,If your heat shields are making noise i would think it would do that all the time.It is possible you have a little lifter noise instead.What weight oil are you using?Roger
