I bought my wagon a few months back, 41K, runs great. No problems until today. I got in my car, turned it over and then heard a loud knocking, right on time with engine RPM. Loud knock at first, then settled into a loud tapping.
I turned it off and then back on again and tapping resumed. I hopped into my girlfriends jeep and ran my errands.
I haven't had any problems with it and it ran great until I turned it over. Now, I know that it's a bit difficult to diagnose a car in a forum(!), so I'm just looking for ideas. I don't work on cars and I plan to take it in to get looked at, but I'm wondering if I should get it towed in or if it's safe to drive. Again, I'm not looking for a definitive answer, but maybe a most likely scenario.
Thanks for the insight!
