Asked by Aug 09, 2014 at 02:50 PM about the 1996 Toyota Tercel 2 Dr STD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Heard a loud tapping noise like something
was loose in the oil pan so I removed it and
rotated the assembly.. pushed on the
bottom of each piston cap an they all were
tight an didn't budge but one.. It doesn't
move much but it's noticable.. the bolts
were not loose just the cap.. I thought
maybe it could have broke off the ends of
the bolts but then I'm sure it would of been
alot more play in the cap and the crank.. My
next step is to just remove the whole piston
it self..

You spun a rod bearing.

Rod bearing? What makes u think that? The head is off so I'm looking at the top of the pistons..
