Engine knock

Post by John bevardos » Sat Sep 21, 2019 9:21 pm

Hi all, can't find my manual so I'm going to ask the professors here. Motor has a knock when it is just coasting not accelerating and not D accelerating. Number one rod was a tad loose could move it by hand so I remove to shims it's nice. Still had the knock as I drove it, shorted out all cylinders and when I shorted out number three, it knocked like crazy. What do you think it might be? Thank you, John

Hi Hank, was kind of thinking the same thing because the rod was nice and tight on the journal so I left it alone. Thank you, John

John,

Can you reach up there with a super long set of needle nose pliers to see if just by chance the bolt back out a little? It is tight in there but sometimes it can be retightened and the problem stops. Just saying.

Hope you Find It,

Hank
