Okay, I just did an oil change today. The clicking/knocking noise is still there. I can only hear the sound when the car is on idle. Once I speed up I can't really hear it until I come to a stop. I ask the mechanic that was changing my oil about the noise and he says it was normal for the 3.2 liters to be doing that. So what is your opinion?
Here is the deal, the guy that I was selling my car to told me that the knocking was a rod knock. I don't know what that is. He continue to explain it but I have no clue to what he is talking about. He told me the engine needs to be replace and I shouldn't be driving it because it is not safe. He test drive the car and say he can still hear the knocking noise but the transmission shifts fine. He told me the oil pressure gauge reads low but when I look at the manuel book it says the oil is normal. After all is said and done, he offer me a price of $400 to take my car. His friend so happen to be driving near by decided to stop by and check out the car. He said samething but later on, he offer me $1,200 for the car. Does this sounds like a scan? Are these guys trying to rip me off?
All I know about the knocking noise is, I could hear it knocking when the car is idle but once I speed up or reving it up I can't hear it. I don't know if its a big problem or not. Any opinion of yours will be greatly appreciated. Sorry, this is the best I can describe it because I don't know much about the engine.
