I did it for 2 or 3 years, including a family vacation from Long Island to Georgia, to Disney, North Carolina, and back home.

Oh, had rod knock the whole time too!

That was on my red '91, which finaly expired due to the rod bearings. Big surprise :rolleyes:

i'm starting to think my car has a slight slight rod knock. someone posted a wav file of it here a few weeks ago.

the sound i'm hearing sounds very similar except i only hear it at highway speeds, obviously only when moving, around 65-70MPH.

for a while i thought it might be just the injectors, but they'd have to be awfully loud to hear over a cone intake and exhaust, don't ya think? well, i guess i'll just ride it out and see what unravels...:(

sure it is not something like a dustshield flapping in the air at only freeway speeds?

just food for thought!
later!

dont you worry now...you wont get a rod knock unless you bang the hell out of your oil pan to the point where oil doesnt recirculate through the engine. you should be fine with the tranny, its just annoying, so get it fixed whenever you can.

Here's my take on it man.

You CAN drive it without 5th gear, but it's not good for your engine at highway speeds when the engine is still cold. If you have the time to let your engine warm up to operating temp before you drive it that would be best. It's just not good to go running your engine cold at 4,000+ rpm at highway speeds. If you can avoid that then you'll do good by your engine.

Like I said before.....FIX IT!

No, the rod knock happened because my car was low on oil, my brother in law borrowed it and was rompin on it.
