2000 Chevrolet Malibu 3.1L Engine Knock
I have a Malibu with what sounds like the famous piston slap, however it doesnt go away. I replaced the lifters because I had to replace a leaking intake gasket anyway. It has new plugs and wires and has always made the sound even before replacing them. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine however I am open to any and all diagnostics. Please leave a comment. Thanks
ROD KNOCK!!! What it looks like inside the engine.
Check out rod bearings and pictures on Amazon HERE: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007P73RZQ/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=U TF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B007P73RZQ&linkCode=as2&tag=httpww wyou00f-20 ROD KNOCK!!! What it looks like inside the engine. How to determine if you have rod knock by taking off the oil pan. This car is a 1996 Toyota Paseo 1.5 liter. The oil circuit for cylinder one got a piece of foil blocking it. The connecting rod on that cylinder died an ignominious death.

Grand Am Rod knock and missfire
IMPORTANT: some people seem to be confused the purpose of the video was to only show that the misfire and know where present not a diagnosis. the cause of the issues are unknown but my best guess was the LIM leak was going on for a wile i received the car none running on the back of a tow truck. the misfire also looked to be present before i got the car and the cause was a burnt Exhaust valve. hope the clears things up so you do not look silly in the comments here is a video for a friends dad to show the knock and misfire EDIT: This car has been fixed and sold as of 1/20/2011
