it could be the rods or valves or timing chain or belt

Is your check engine light on? If so, I'd suspect an overly lean air/fuel mixture (vacuum leak) or retarded valve timing (worn timing chain) causing it to pop back at the throttle body. HTH. -Jim

had it, replace your 4 way universal, should be about in middle of drive line, if bad, when going up a slight grade,at a normal speed let off the gas then hit the gas again, try that a couple of times , if its bad you will hear the noise


a pop or click is not enough information,

Ok, lets just say it is loud clicks that are so deep they could sould like pops.
