| | Re: Tata Safari 3.0L Dicor: Ownership Report
Hi Shahid, The sound from the engine could be because of various reasons:
1. 3.0 Dicor engine is sibling of 407 Truck engine, which is noisy in nature.
2. Knocking sound could be the reason because of bad injectors.
3. Tappet setting could also be the reason.
4. Bad Engine mounts could also share the role of noise and vibrations.
By nature, the clutch of 3.0 Dicor is too hard and even if you will replace it by new one, after few days it tends to become harder. You have to live with it.
My Safari 3.0 Dicor was suffered from same issues, after injector repair and tappet setting, noise reduced significantly. Clutch was too hard and new clutch was 50% soft, however after 300 KM, the nature of the clutch changed again.
What is fuel avg. you are getting from your 3.0?
