So a guy at work comes up to me and tells me he has a talon that is knocking bad (after he sees my gsx), its a 97 tsi awd prtty much all stock but the motor is knocking and it has no power. like clack clack clack clack clack, and when you hit the gas the knocking goes faster.
Honestly never really fixed a knocking engine so i don't really know where to start but i was thinking of pulling the oil pan and seeing if theres anything inside of it, if its just a spun bearing do you just make sure the rods are good, the cranks good and replace bearings/whatever is necessary? do you think the block is knicked up and ####ed up now and needs to be replaced? is there a way to tell without taking the whole damn engine apart? i was thinking just pulling the bottom end and lookin around seein if i could find it (free beer
thanks in advance
