Also this only happens when the temp gauge goes over the half way mark ( it is fine before the temp goes up ) It is not overheating and the coolant is full. It is not a lifter or rod knock it does not sound like a wrist pin either. I was going to change the alternator insulator rubbers as i do not know if they are original or not but i cannot see how these would make the sound only when the engine heats up. any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
does it make the noise in neutral accelerating?
