  1. Or is it perfectly normal sounding engine for the miles and I might have a little PTSD from cars leaving me on the side of the road. Witch btw 2 of 4 where Ford Tauruses, one was a Mazda 323 I burned up clutch and last was a 1995 Grand am 2.3 ouad 4 witch had problems lots witch showed it's colors after I redlined it at like 99mph maybe faster and caused rod knock. The oil light would flicker at idle on the way home. (This story is the car to the grave) witch was 80 to 90 miles ... It was horrible loud it finally locked up 3 miles from home. It wouldn't even turn over. O and mind the water pump also when out on the way and stopped by two creeks to fill up radiator lol. The oil was changed two days before and was dark gray when it died. Opened oil filter and found no shavings or specks of metal that I could see. There was a fair amount of dirt however so yeah. That o2 was the upstream one changed it two month ago w downstream
  2. Understood. Btw there is a post engine oil it has more videos. And one of the old oil. Thanks two lane blacktop
  3. So here we go again. Lol 2000 Pontiac Grand am 2.4l 243,xxx miles. So as we know the car sat for a wile it was run for a wile with 2 cyls working and two getting fuel. Possible cylinder walls washed and over heated. I think we have piston slap got a few vids of before and after oil change. First vid is old oil second is engine after third is before oil change. If you can hear the second video you can hear the sound well it is under the lifter tick sounds ... Can also see the glitter in the oil pan I think ?!?!?!?! ...... thanks you-all for the input and help. The whirling nosie is the alt btw 20181207_004144.mp4 20181207_003940.mp4 20181206_142218.mp4

  5. Now I'm hearing a hollowed muffled almost bell like sound. It sounds the same cold or hot. When I first started the car in the morning I don't hear no chatter or anything. I'll try to get a vid of the sound.

    Heat hot at high rpm, cold at low

    My grand am uses a door flap with electric motor ( temp selector ) make sure that is in working order to
  7. Cool thanks people. Frosty that confirms the thought this car sat for awile. Center part is in-between the two breaking contact point. They didn't look that bad when I had taken them off the car btw. The contact point was clean but pitted and grooved

    Is thermostat bad or maybe it didn't seat correctly when installed. It's happened to me before. Like to much cold water going through. Maybe try a hotter thermostat????
  9. Yeah I left them in the rain a few days for I took the pic or are you talking about the center of them? I do think the car sat for like a year n half ... And change the oil was first on list lol.
  10. So just replaced some parts they where shot. Makes me wonder what the heck hell these parts suffered. Lol. The caliper on driver's side was so bad it broke my c-clamp. Had to undo brake line and beat the heck out of it with 🔨 untill it worked. Wound up replacing however! There was a feeling of unblanced tire magically it when away lol.... Anything else or tips I should know or do anything thing else? 😂😂😂😂 Look at that rotor 👇👇👇👇🙃🙃🙃🙃 dang cat 🤣🤣🤣🤣
  11. Word! Thanks for all the help Two lane blacktop
  12. Yep like u so said. Tie rods where shot and bushing .... Car now turns scary sharp. This whole time I thought the car had great handling well come to find out it didn't. Next up ball joints and a wheel bearing or two. Question the oil when I drained it had like a glitter look. Not bad just like I could tell there was metal wear ... No flakes no large pieces oil was still amber on the stick. I had to look closely with a bright flashlight to see what was in there anyway. What do u all think? 20181121_203105.mp4
  13. Well I think I found the problem! I filled up the gas tank to the max for the first time finally and then smelled gas like crazy strong. Twas like da hell. Yep there is a hole in top the tank where the fill neck connects. Bet 100% that I'm getting water in there.
  14. Thanks I needed that hahahahahaha
  15. I've been using marvel mystery oil for two tanks now and it doesn't miss a beat. The only other thing I did has been take throttle body off and made it spotless. From what I could tell one of the vac line in the body was plugged the EGR solenoid
