Very long time ago when my mum still had her wira 1.5, it was the crank pulley that caused vibration after changing to new mount but still got minor vibration.

The crank pulley had rubber in between the steel to dampen vibration.Over the years, the rubber harden/shrink.
My VR not so lucky, the two pieces came apart. Broke down in Klang, but that was a few years back, now on solid pulley.....lol

satria neo...all 3 mounting i change
I assume the mountings are good quality ones? Is yours an auto or manual? Does the Neo have gearbox mountings separate from the engine ones? I suppose you should check the crank pulley condition. I wouldn't recommend aftermarket alu crankpulleys unless they are good quality ones. Too many made in China ones that fail after a very short period of time.

btw, if i require to change he crank pulley, will it be better to change those aftermarket performance lightened crank pulley or change back the oem type?


i read that the aftermarket type do not have the harmonic dampener thing, is that bad?
Stock OEM.

Trust me.

Why?

I changed to aftermarket one after all the hype. Then I changed back. true story.

Hi, i own a 2008 satria neo 1.6 non-cps manual.

until recently (few months back) i start to hear all kind of sound coming from my car, i try to describe it as much as possible, hope sifu can help me diagnose what is the problem

1) when decelerate/ let go of pedal after moving, can hear "whining" sound, i suspect is my transmission problem, or maybe my engine?

2) actually when accelerate, also have this like "engine cannot breath" sound, which also sounded something like whining above (1), but decelerate the sound will be even louder...

3) when try to accelerate with a higher gear (for example suppose to be in 2nd gear but instead i have it in 3rd gear), there will be like loud sound something like loose bolt, clinging sound...i suspect is transmission also?

thanks in advance !
Description is not enough to judge it really. best is to bring it to reputable mechanic. or u can record the sound in youtube and share it.

Anyway as proton owner before, all noises are normal for proton cars. bread and butter of the brand Proton. deswai i chg to Honda and no much noise occured. my honda is 18 yrs old but still lesser noise than my wiralution that is younger. go figure.

Didn't performed "better" in real world, not in any subjective or objective manner.
I thought a lightened crank pulley makes the engine more eager to rev. At least, that's my butt dyno feel when I replaced.

I didnt re-balance the crankshaft.Have engine vibration at idle and few years down the road despite minimal usage, has had to replace ac compressor, alternator. God knows what else is coming soon.

I thought Ixeo was talking about the mountings?

Hi,

I changed to NGK iridium spark plugs recently, just to try and see if it really is worth the money, but I dont see much different on my stock setting engine. Because of that, I plan to try out good performance plug cables and maybe with power booster along with the cables. So do you have any recommendations? Also, what should I expect from playing around with these stuff? Increase in acceleration? Jimat petrol?

thx
