I have a rod knocking in mine 1992 Honda Accord and also was wondering the life of my engine if i took brief trips and didn"t rev the engine also high ?
Make certain it is without doubt a pole knock, ns remember to buy a nice Ford Econoline party valve from this man for very cheap,he said the rod was knocking and also it needed a new motor, turned out to be simply the U joints essential to it is in replaced.As because that driving the car with a rod knocking or it might be a worn out huge end bearing expect the instance to obtain worse until the engine suffers catastrophic failure,at which allude its time to scrap the car..

I bought a Porsche that had actually a pole knock which I construed to be bolts loosened on the crank pulley. Only around a $12000 difference in outcome. The OP has actually no organization doing anything but taking the automobile to a great mechanic because that a expert opinion.EDIT: to clarify, the turned out that it to be a crank pulley. It take it a little bit to acquire the feet re-drilled and also tapped because they had actually rounded out, however it turned out to it is in a $600 problem and not a $12000 problem.
I to buy a Porsche that had actually a rod knock i m sorry I construed to it is in bolts loosened on the crank pulley. Only around a $12000 difference in outcome. The OP has actually no organization doing anything yet taking the automobile to a great mechanic for a experienced opinion.
That is a great point due to the fact that someone had looked under the hood and also said the pulley looked loose,so currently that has me wondering, however, i did take it to a mechanic and also he claimed it sounded favor a rod
On countless 4-banger FWD cars, pulling the oil pan and also replacing one or much more rod bearings is actually no all the hard, provided you perform it before you damage the crankshaft newspaper bearing too much. Realize, that simply putting a new bearing covering is no a 100% repair, but if you execute that, yeah, then you might have the ability to use the vehicle for rather a if if you take it it basic with it. The factor the stick bearing is loose needs examination - low oil pressure? Ran it the end of oil?
Are you certain it"s a pole knock? The F22 engine has actually been known to do piston slap noise as soon as it gets a ton of miles. I would also check the harmonic balancer bolt.
If you actually do have actually an engine knock and plan to later on rebuild the engine the you have, proceeding to journey the automobile could an outcome in a rod coming loosened and coming v the block. The will boost your repair costs since you will have actually no main point to trade-in when you buy a brand-new or rebuilt block.Also be careful since a pole tearing with the next of the engine block might also an outcome in a severe engine fire, i.e. Flood engine oil top top a warm exhaust.
If the hit disappears under acceleration and gets louder as soon as decelerating or in ~ idle, then it"s a an excellent chance it"s a pole knock. Had actually it occur twice top top two big block Chevy"s i had.
I drive a Ford 3.8L V6 v a gentle rod knock for 20k miles. Yes, 20,000. The thing just wouldn"t die. Ns was maybe to situate the stick knock by disconnecting each spark plug cable one in ~ a time till the jackhammering walk away. Among the connecting rod bearings was wiped clean. The crankshaft was not 100% smooth yet wasn"t completely scored up, therefore I put in one new bearing and also the noise go away. Wound up offering the engine away, retained the vehicle as a project.
