MY 2000 CAMRY
Did this start just after the oil was changed? Could be overfilled with oil.
Most of the time,noise from bottom of engine,s is a weak main or crank bearing.
does this mean it is a dead engine> I did have the oil changed on 6/23 so could be from it being over filled. the pinging noise sounds like if you were to have bad gas or timing is off. but i took it to a shop and they said it is all normal.
Check the dipstick engine cold, see if it is over full the rods splash into the oil when it was running making a plinking kind of sound, you would only hear it at idle.
