I've not updated in a while, so here it is. I cleaned the throttlebody, added a bottle of injector cleaner and replaced the fuel filter since the last update. A neighbor came over while I was under the hood and I told him about the car's rough idle and what had been done to the car. He's a part time mechanic. I started the car and he say it sounded like there was something knocking on the backside of the engine. He suggested it may have a cam, pushrod problem. I've been hearing that sound, but it was kind of subtle and I didn't think much of it. I know that's a lot to digest, but I hope you can add some advise. I'm going to borrow a compression checker soon, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to checking the compression. We are suppose to have bad weather for the next couple days or so.
