havent been drivin the GVR4 much since i bought it as ive been tryin to pay debt down, buy parts etc....but today i thought id show her some love and give her some new oil. used Amsoil full synthetic and Mobile1 filter. The car was definately low on oil (if 3 quarts came out id be suprised) i didnt notice much for silver flakes in the oil so i suppose thats a good sign, however when i started it up i noticed a barely audible knock coming from cyl 4 area...... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gifperhapse ive not noticed this because im not usually under the hood when its running and its nowhere near loud enough to hear from inside the car as the exhaust drowns out pretty much whatever....i took the car out, drove it around and its still there, not getting worse or better. its BARELY audible at idle, when i rev it it gets a bit more audible. Its def not lifter tick (i have 3g lifters) and i know what rod knock sounds like (my 240 threw a rod bad) i need to get a oil pressure gauge to see what the oil pump is putting out, but this worries me more than a bit.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dunno.gif ideas?
