knocking

  1. Shudder in 3rd gear?

    Technical Help Forum
    It'll be a while before I can get to it but I'm looking for opinions on a recurrent issue. Basically there's a shudder/knocking noise in 3rd gear, slow at low rpm and faster as you climb, smoothing out but not disappearing once you reach around 6000. As a precaution I've been avoiding using that...
  2. Scary engine noise, any advice?

    Technical Help Forum
    So the noise doesn't sound like the typical rhythmic cam chain ticking, it occurs as I'm accelerating at low rpm and sounds like a solid, deep knocking. Idling or at higher speeds it's non-existent but when I do hear it, it seems to be coming from the lower right of the engine. Any ideas?
