Okay, so I have this knock at idle whem warmed up. Its sounds mostly like a rod knock. I have good oil pressure. The knock gets a little but louder as the you hit the throttle no load. And its really hard to tell if it gets louder if your in gear. But it does alway happen at idle when warmed up. When I pulled the pan there was no metal shavings in the pan and no debris in pick up screen. The timing chain did seem lose. Should I be worried or just keep driving it
This is a long shot but what oil are you running? Reason I ask is I tried 15w40 in mine once and it was so thick it made a noticeable knock even warm. I thinned the oil and it disappeared. Have not run a 15w40 since nor has the knock ever returned.
You said you had good oil pressure, curious what you're actually getting.
i bought a Jeep that was to have a bad motor. made a knock noise when running but no change when RPM's up. also went away a time or two. ended up being a bad torque converter and loose flex plate bolts in mine.
started with a knock then turned to vibration once i tightened the flex plate bolts. guess it let the TC issue show then
