You guys are awesome I used 2 always ask you about my 1997 Honda Accord but that was years ago but I came back because you guys are so smart.I'm a female & I went too go buy a 1995 Toyota Camry today for 700.00 it has a rod knock & if it idles long enough it will go away and come back or get "Lighter" sounding but son of a bitch I was driving it home after paying the guy the 700.00 cash & 3 blocks away the car was at a light and I went too "GO" and it wouldn't move then I got it moving somehow I was pushing it in Neutral & went into Drive and just kept going but when I stopped at the light maybe 3 miles away it did it again and I saw the OIL, CHECK ENGINE and brake light on and the brake wasn't on I made sure I just checked the oil it looked fine & the tranny oil was fine no burn smelling so do you think it will need a new engine AND tranny or would the "knocking" cause this too happen because the knock is kinda loud. So before my father who is a ASE mechanic jumps OUT of his grave & slaps the sh*t out of me should I KEEP it & fix it or resell it. The tranny shifted fine when it WAS going its just not grabbing that 1st gear is what I'm thinking & maybe the car was ran with NO oil? There is NO smoke out of tail pipe its an automatic with a V6 engine. Thanx guys you are AWESOME. The check engine, oil, brake & some other light came on when it died at the light because I was probably pissing the car off revving it so much when I was trying too get it too move. When you REV it the knocking sort of goes away. Oh & the BEST part is I bought it without test driving it I have NO idea WHY so the guy who sold it was GONE! =((
have the same problem?
