Weird slappy/ knocky noise on driver side engine when warmed up
I was wondering if anyone else has this problem or know whats up could chime in on this if its an issue or not
I've had this problem for awhile. Every time I cold start my car its great no weird noises or anything; however, when my car is fully warmed up (185F - have t180 stat) the driver side front wheel area will have a weird knocky sound once per revolution during idle / low rpm while in drive.
Its more noticeable if I turn the fully warmed up car off for like 5-10 minutes and turn it back on it would sound like piston slap... or something like a diesel engine would sound like... actually it sounds alot like 2 large marbles hitting each other.
A few days ago I was reversing onto my fairly inclined driveway slowly (low rpm) and I could hear it louder and faster depending on rpm when I had my head out of the window.
The sound is very noticeable when I'm near the driver side front wheel well, the passenger side sounds perfectly fine.
The car has 52000 miles, routine M1 oil changes and level is good, no CELs, running caned 91 cai tune, stock tune would make the same noise.
I'll grab a video of the sound and post it sometime tomorrow
