I would take the time to check the compression before driving too far. gary Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2006 18:09:19 +0200 From: Jens Jakob Andersen <jayjay@ZORCK.DK> Subject: Loud metallic knock from engine??????


Now I got the van started.

And I have a loud metallic knock fromthe engine, righthand side.

Sound to me like a stuck hydraulic lifter, or a stuck valve..............

Any good suggestions on a quick diagnosis and fix?

It is not just the normal valve clatter when cold - it is a distingtive metallic KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK.
