Q:

Sometimes my engine (DOHC) makes a clacking noise that you would think was a rod on 1995 Plymouth Neon

When it's been drove for awhile it clacks a little more than usual. sometimes it don't clack at all. Fresh oil turns back rather quickly. Neon website said it might be "piston slap". Never heard of that before. Doesn't show up on a code reader, and another Neon owner said he's had three Neons, and two clacked just like mine. It still has plenty of power and goes like hell, but make a ..... clack noise. any ideas?

IV HEARD THAT THEY DO HAVE PISTON SLAP AFTER THE TOLERENCES LOOSEN UP. KEEP IT SEVICED AND U WILL BE FINE PROB.WAHT WEIGHT OIL DO U USE? A LITTLE THICKER MAY BE THE ANSWER, BUT CK BOOK 1ST OR CALL DEALER. IF ITS PISTON SLAP THIS WILL DO NO GOOD BUT AT LEAST YOU WILL KNOW YOU HAVE DONE ALL U CAN
