Knocking



#1
My husband drove my car to work and when he got home the car was knocking. He took off the valve cover and everything is pretty well lube. It knocks hard at an idle but when he pushed the gas pedal in more it went to a light ticking or it could be the same but the muffler is drowning it out. Any suggestions

:lol: Oh man...

How is he so positive about this? Is he sure it's rod knock, or valve slap? How familiar with Hondas is he? Does he realize they run forever even w/ both these issues? I'm not saying ignore it, but the smart thing to do is to open it up and figure the issue, instead of just throw a new motor in when you never knew the exact issue. Such a waste of money/time..

He owned a honda before =), anything that sound wrong with mine he was right. Not even a week ago the brakes was acting goofy he said the master cylinder went out and sure enough it did. When my husband turned the car back on it freaking sounded like motor was falling apart. I was scared that the damn thing was about to jump out when it was idling it shook like crazy. I stood back from it lol.

"...done found"..."we was"...

Oh dear. :lol: You do know that Larry the Cable Guy is joking when he talks like that? Right?


I suggest you find out what is exactly wrong with it before you go dumping a bunch of wasted money. Tear the motor down. At this point what do you have to lose?

We are going to but its getting it up to his dad to put it in the garage. It will be next year before it's fixed which sucks,I miss driving my car :(. You are right lethal there is no lost since it's down already. Civicspencer I bet you was mad when it happened. I know I am since this is the only car I have to drive right now.
