Knocking

In the morning when I let my car idle so it warms up, it starts knocking once it gets down to 500 RPM. I thought it was the exhaust coming loose or something, but the engine is definatley knocking.
Can someone ### help? Whats the problem and what should I do?
Thx

No, when I press on the gas it goes away. Its only when the car idles at 500. And its like two metal things hitting each other softly. Like a softball bat hitting a ball. Real soft though.

probly gonna be exhaust hitting the body, or some form of body contact.

mine however..is a nice metallic knock.

just got it a few min ago....its the cam follower. again.

this time its the other side head...the one i asked the dealer to fix, because it had seen the same stresses as the other one.

oh well. now i get to fix this one......they messed up WAY too much stuff the last time it was in there. total was 4 bolts loose, 2 nuts missing, o2 snesor finger tight, injector clip broken, and RTV's into place, damaged bumper, greasy handprints all over the car, some sandwich fragments in the floor, and a empty can of diet pepsi.


do i look like i drink a DIET drink?

damn

done venting......for now
