Engine knock

Asked by zircon Sep 19, 2019 at 01:41 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS Spyder

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so i have a 03 eclipse 3.0 v6 and we changed
the oil pump cuz it went out and the starter as well
but theres a knock in it and we changed all the
valve lashes (lifters) and changed the clutch set
cuz throwout barring was bad and we thought that
was the knock but the knock is still there and we
took this car apart like 12 times now trying to fix it
and sometimes when we start it itll be quiet

If it lost oil pressure when the oil pump went bye bye chances are very high that it damaged some of the engines bearings, but I have also heard pistons make a similar sound.
