but who knows what the previous owners habits were haha.
Honestly, I don't know much about cars, so what should I listen for to tell if I do indeed have a rod knock? anything specific?
Nothing to listen for, you already have the knocking rod,, that is what that loud sharp loose knocking sound is when you flip the throttle..
And yea, I know about the exhaust leak.
Funny I could hear it along with the knocking in the audio
I'm trying to fix one thing at a time when I get the money, haha. I'm but a poor college kid trying to get from A to B.
You going to be poorer, fastest easy thing to do is replace the engine.. keep running the engine, and it will stop when the rod breaks and maybe leave nice hole in the iron block... had 1 towed in recently, said it stalled, wont start.. went out, hit starter,,, CLUNK... tried to turn crank forward, NO GO,, did roll back with parts clanking sound inside,, hit key again,, it fired and knocked for maybe 5 seconds when rod and misc left confines of block and fell on ground under the car.. did not even have to push that one anywhere
