Passenger side engine knocking tied to RPM drop
I have a 99 Chevrolet cavalier 2.2L. Lately whenever my RPMs drop while at speeds lower than about 30mph there is a single knock coming from the passenger side of the engine. It only happens once per RPM drop. Once I am at higher speeds it doesn't happen anymore. Also, if the car is in neutral and I press on the gas and release it there is no noise, but if I hold the break and lightly press on the gas and release it (dropping the RPMs) there is the same knock. Any ideas? Thanks!
I would check the motor mounts.
could be a little play in a rod bearing needing higher oil pressure ,to fill the gap ,try heaver oil !
