There is some noise, knocking sound, once it warms up. I would say it starts after running about 3-4minutes. I have not had alternator or battery checked yet. Would these cause the odometer to flash and oil light to come on. Hate to spend several hundred on a computer if it is say timing chain, distributor or something else. The odometer flashing is throwing me for a loop. It just started doing it one day when wife was taking kids to school so she came back and as she pulled in driveway it cutoff. I did take off the serp belt to see if maybe it was a/c, waterpump or bearing in something that is in the belts system, did same thing.
Thought about oil pump but friend said that is uncommon, maybe timing chain jumped but it runs idle fine until its warm. Confused!
