So last Sunday I loaned my fiance my WRX so she could go to a 3 week work training, during which time I was going to do some minor body repairs to her 2011 Mustang. This past Friday I go and pic it up and drive she and 2 hours to see her sister. Today I drove her 2 hours back to her training, and then another 2 hours home. About an hour into my final drive the engine starts knocking at a stop light. 12,500 miles on this thing. The PO had done all the maintenance at the correct times and I did the 10,500 mile oil change myself. I checked the oil level and its fine. Unfortunately my phone battery was completely dead and I was in the middle of no where, so I had to limp the car another 45 minutes home.
I called roadside assistance and I scheduled for them to come and pick it up in the morning to take it to the dealership (which is an hour away). Took a video of it right after it started happening. It got slightly louder after I finally made to it a friends house, which is where it will sit until tomorrow.
Does this sound like rod knock to everyone else? My Camaro spun a rod bearing once and this sound fairly similar, unfortunately no video of it revving since I was the only one around.
