Knock, knock.. rap.. any ideas?



Has a steady knocking with rpm and also a really loud random knocking as well..

Sounds way up high under the passenger valve cover..

Any ideas before I start taking it apart?

(runs smooth with no CEL or anything like that)

Thanks,

it sounds like a rocker arm came loose id pull it a part before you do more damage.

I pulled the intake and valve covers the next day..
Everything was tight and in good shape.. its gotta be something worse.

Its a parts car now.. I've already sold the entire nose and the rear bumper cover..

I'll use the interior and top on my GT~

pull out the "distributor" and see if the gear is bad also the cam gear. mine failed and sounded like your same problem.
