Does anyone know a good mechanic in Perth who's familiar with the 2ZZ?
There's something not quite right with mine but I don't know enough to tell what it is. I have a baisc mechanical knowledge but nowhere near enough to properly diagnose it. It feels weak and rough, doesn't pull smooth and strong like it used to, and makes a tinny/raspy kind of noise as the revs climb. There is a bit of tappet noise on startup, I don't know if this normal or something I should be concerned about.
I want to have it diagnosed by someone who knows what they're doing and have whatever needs fixing, fixed. I'm a full-time student with very limited funds, so I can't afford to be wasting money taking it to someone who might not know exactly what's going on. I suspect it'll cost me to get it back to A1, so I want to make sure it's done properly the first time.
I'm relatively new to Perth and don't know anyone who can recommend a good mechanic, so any recommendations would be appreciated.
