I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, it really helps in diagnosing noises when I can listen to them. Is there anyway you can record the noise with your phone and then upload to youtube and post a link here so that I can listen to it.

Also, if there are any fault codes present, please list them

Scanner will not communicate with vehicle.Scanner is high quality.Knock is camshaft related.Have checked timing 4 times but have no crank markings so have set at tdc on number one.Have checked valve clearances etc..

When you had the cambelt off, did you check for excess camshaft thrust
