Questions & Answers

Mechanic Q: I have been told that engine noise is from piston slap in #2 cylinder, what can be done? ?

Engine tapping noise at idle. Acceleration to 3RD gear causes engine to make clicking sounds until engine levels off. I have not found evidence of a leak or that it is burning oil. I used high mileage oil to replace the existing oil. The engine is somewhat less noisy but continues at acceleration. I have been told that the piston in #2 cylinder has piston slap.-any recommendations?
