Okay, that MIGHT be exaggerating a little... this morning when I was in the drive through, I started to hear a rattle that sounded like the exhaust was rattling some. Okay, no big deal. I pulled up to the pump at the gas station, popped the hood and got out. That rattle suddenly sounded more like tap-tap-tap from the motor!
Killed the car, measured the oil. No problem there. Fired her back up, uh oh.... tap-tap-tap again. Then it went away. Then tap-tap-tap AGAIN. At that point I figured out that it wasnt internal. It was from the water pump side... turns out that the tensioner is knocking around now. I could see the back side moving and tapping in rhythm of the noise I was hearing.
So there it is, one of the best ways to wake up! Tapping noises from the engine with only 105k miles.
