engine noise/knock

Postby leesbo55 » November 20th, 2015, 12:07 am

2003 with 37000 miles. for a while been hearing what sounds like a screw rattling in a coffee can. I thought it was the keys hitting the tank. started the other day at about 60 - 65 louder and faster, then this banging that sounded like someone beating on steel bars with a hammer. slowed down it stopped. went back up to 65 it came back. slowed to 55 and drove home. never lost power, runs great. what is this? will a timing chain make a bang like a hammer hitting jail bars? only 1000 since last oil change.

sounds like the cam chains, but without hearing it in person its hard to tell. certainly hope you found you answer by now. good luck.
