1994 SW2
Default My youtube engine trouble any thoughts?

1994 SW2 engine sounds bad is it upper or lower problem? I'm thinking rod or other lower problem.

I'm thinking of a rebuilt block but having difficulty locating one therefore I may just repair this one. Any thoughts appreciated.

It almost sounds more like an exhaust leak to me. Not enough of that crisp metal to metal sound you usually get with a rod knock or even a valvetrain problem.

Do you have any idea of the RPM when you shot that video?

Broken flex connection, lower manifold gasket, cat inlet gasket, or cat outlet gasket. Good muffler shop, not the usual tire, brake, and muffler shop.

how about poppin the hood and recording it? rev the engine up some while filming.
it doesn't sound, with the hood closed, like something internally in the engine.
