If YOU can hear the knocking from inside the car, then your motor is saying bye bye...

...you probably need a valve lash adjustment, which should be done every 15000 miles or so give or take. Read the underside of your hood for the specs on intake & exhaust valve clearance.


"knocking" & "ticking" are two different things...
