Anyone want to buy a big piece of crap ??
so youve concluded it is in fact a rod knock
that blows man
wow sounds bad but that is with no oil psi so would be hard to say what noise is?that blows but if they are going to pull pan for pump they better check rods sorry.........
sorry to hear that bro....have the thing tore down. That is definitely not a good sound.
No.......but I know the engine isn't getting oil.
I just have never heard a piston slap personally but I HAVE heard rods knocking.
That just sounded too loud to be anything other than a rod knocking to me.....but I know
Knuckle Dragger said they do kinda sound similar so I'm going to start with the oil pump.
it's the cheaper of the 2. Besides, another local LS1 engine shop said most likely
the oil pump lost it's prime, and might need to be removed and packed with assembly oil.
My shop said they've NEVER used assembly oil because it's so thick, and every engine they
put a new pump in worked fine on the first startup without it.....
It's 4 hours of labor @ $75 an hour.......so $300 in labor....which sucks ass.
So there's no point in wasting the time just to put the old one back in there......
I'm spending the $170 for the SLP one and I'm going to cross my fingers because if this fails
I'm seriously going to be upset,
So I'm kinda stuck here ........going to try the $500 option first.....
aces, is that a new engine? Just curious...
I heard the knock, then I heard it smooth out. Was that your car, or was that something in the background?
Dam bud that sucks hopefully its not goin to be that much to fix fingers crossed
IMHO an oil pump will not fix that problem. The damage is already done hence the knocking or a spun bearing.
If you want a peace of mind while revving the poo out of that thing, find a shop to rebuild it or search on LS1tech for shops around you that can help.
That sound reminds me of my first SBC which had an oiling issue...low pressure. It sounded like that while I was on the interstate. next thing I know I was on the roadside with the engine smoking like cheech
yah i heard it smooth out too? or are we just on crack? if so... thanks ryan for sharing that crack lmao
