I think i found the problem. My positive battery terminal keeps going loose. I have been checking it every other day and its usually good. But it seems every time i tighten it the idle gets alot better for a little while then degrades again, Then i check it, what do ya know loose, Tighten. Idle gets better.
Anyways. I changed my oil and my rear dif fluid last night. Car Idle and runs much better.
I think im getting the piston slap.... im at 58k miles 2nd owner. I notice a noise what seems to be a knock *friggen scary* when i start her up in the morning. I let it idle and warm up. Noise seems to fluctuate i freak out ya know the usual. I drive to work which is about 37 miles away. When i get there i leave her running hop out pop the hood, stick my head underneath the front of the car, do the usually odd listening for noise manuevers and its not there anymore. Is this piston slap or more serious?
I think im going to start saving for a rebuild.
I love this site but i hate it, the more i read the more worried i get. I think im just going to take her in somewhere to get it datalogged hopefully it wont cost that much, Im very broke. I am really thinking about selling the car because im not sure i if i can afford it anymore. If anything would happen to it i would be carless and i need a car for transportation to get to work. I dunno im not feeling to go good about my vehicle atm. Im torn between something really wrong or nothing really wrong.
