Damaged Tumble flaps make clacking noises?
I read that one FF had issues with them, but I'm not certain that it could do that. I looked BRower64's thread about removing the tumble flaps, and I can see where it might wear out where the shaft meets the flap and cause it to be loose.
Anyway, that's my issue. The car sounds like the freaking valves are about to pop out. However, a mechanic's stethoscope reveals no strange sounds from the valve cover. I do get lots of clacking from the intake manifold. It could be injectors, which are also making noise, but it's hard to tell.
Has anyone else had problems like this?
