HELP! ROD KNOCKING SOUND '91 Legacy
Posted 17 May 2005 - 09:56 AM
My Subaru is my winter beater and parts hauler. I don't give it much love, basically just change the oil and it never complains.
A few weeks ago I started up the car and I heard an audible ticking sound almost like rod knock but not really. Either way it scared the crap out of me. I immeadiatly turned off the car checked the oil and confirmed it was full and started the car again. Noise gone.
This am same exact situation.

(A rod knock will usually get louder as the engine oil heats up and thins out.)

If it's a sticky lifter, sometimes it's as easy as switching to a different brand of oil. I wouldn't include Penzoil as an option if it were me...
