Yea.. clicking comes and goes...
I don't really notice power loss... but that doesn't mean its not there..

I had that issue on my cherokee.. I don't think that is it.. it is less metallic, and more airy maybe.. muffled anyways..
Not the prominent knock of a u joint.

The exhaust is rusty, but no discernable holes.. maybe the header gasket?

It did mysteriously stop this afternoon... it was their half the day, then just went away... that freaked me out the most..... things that randomly stop eventually die forever..lol


At first I thought it seemed related to the transmission gear speed.. then it kinda sounded like it was keeping time with the pistons...

Are the gears metal, ir some poly something?
I wonder about the difference In sound
...

Ways I can be sure of something?

J_alther could be a rod or a valve, might end up having to change the head, hopefully not, id try running thicker oil like 15-40, and see if it quiets up

clicking during acceleration..

I notices today a clicking... it seems to be related to the rpm/gears..
It is reallly fast in second.. I go to third, and the clicking slows down..

What is this. Mildly unnerving....

:scared:
