....WOW…. That didn’t just happen on your way to work, it had to be pounding for a long time. You certainly got maximum mileage out of that one, like KnockingStealth indicated I hope you didn’t get the valves when belt finally jumped.drove to work the other morning and then can't start the car to go home
So, you replaced your timing belt and obviously the tensioner and it sounds good? I am amazed. Go play the lottery.OMG a failed tensioner can sounds like a rod knock!
I have thought for 2 years now that my motor was bad and slowly getting worse, so I stopped driving the car completely to not ruin the block.
But recently it became my only car and I had to drive it
12 at night after being put back together hit the key and he poured like a kitten actually forgot how good it sounded!
So in a since the way the chatter sound reverberates up the timing belt front cover plate into the intake valley. Bouncing up to sound like a bad knock where you can't pinpoint where the noise is coming from top end or bottom end when it actually coming from the side
