I remember Haro asking when I had the 95. I want to think 4K... but if he'* only at 3K..then it has nothing to do with it.

Is there any test that can be done to know for sure whether its a bent rod?
My oil is in good shape. the knock after the oil change just started within the last two months. I would hate to spend on a engine rebuild but I will to keep my baby on the road.

Chances are thats a rod tap

jr would changing the oil to 15w-40 be a good idea?
just for second opinion
