You can use a stethoscope if you have one, or a long screwdriver that you can out against it and put your ear to the handle. You may even be able to "feel" it moving inside if you touch it. The best way would be to have a tech check it out for you.
the motor is a 3.0 but its not a dual over head so if you would be so kind as to poss send the specs on where the sensor is located i read something bout a pace that is know to breck off and thank you so much
