Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Chevy Beretta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 181K miles
I have a 95 Beretta, 2.2 ltr. Engine, auto. Trans. When it first starts there is a loud knocking noise (I can't tell exactly where it's from, ) then it quiets down until acceleration, then it knocks again. There is nothing visibly wrong with thhe rocker arms or the pushrods. I have pulled the oil pan and there are no metal shavings, nothing that I can see wrong with the rods, pistons, crank, and the oil pump is working. I have replaced the belt tensioner, and the harmonic balancer and assembly. Every thing seems to line up well for the belt, but when I crank it up the belt immediately pulls into the motor right at the belt tensioner, and only the tensioner. And the motor mounts appear to be in good condition. I'm baffled! Do you have any suggestions, please?
P.S. I love your site and I will be returning!
