Does the noise increase with rpm of the engine?
Is the noise from the top or bottom of the engine?
Honestly I can't tell if it is from the top or the bottom. What's the difference? Does the fact that there is no blue smoke make a difference?
The fact there is no smoke doesn't narrow it down.....
Does it change with engine rpm?
When is it the loudest? On acceleration or deceleration?
I believe it gets louder during acceleration. . . but it's a constant knock.
No, I'm a female and my ex husband was a mechanic . . I'm familiar with terminology but that's it.
Does it sound like a major repair to you?
I know this is prob a silly question, but 600-900 dealership rates?
Is the majority of that cost labor?
How much do you think parts would cost?
Here is the parts:
Bearings : $132.00
Yes I gave you dealer pricing so you could get it done cheaper from a repair shop.
Unfortunately, I feel like because I'm a woman and look younger I may get taken advantage of. I did describe the problem to someone that I know who used to work in the auto field and he said it sounded like maybe it could be a lifter and someone else agreed. Someone else (not that saavy in auto repair) said bearing, and then a local mechanic said Jasper motor - no other options???
It has a 4' lift and 33' tires- could the strain on the motor cause this issue?
I'm taking it to someone who does mechanic repair on the side and hopefully they can resolve the issue. In the meantime, I was trying to do a little research myself.
