I have a 1996 Trans Am LT1 and just had the head gaskets replaced and valves replaced. Cost a boat load of money. Now it makes a loud banging noise, like a hammer hitting on metal inside. I was told it may be the piston broke. Now they want another boat load of money to pull the engine out again. Just can't afford this and not sure if would be worth it. No one seems to want to work on this car for some reason. What would cause this noise? It cranks and can drive it for a short distance but it's so loud, everyone hears it. What should I do? Thanks.
have the same problem?
