frown slight knock

hi
i was leavin my mates house the other day,in my eb, started the engine and we could here a knock, well he heard it because his ef is doin the same thing.
it a knockin thats hard to explain, could even call it a bubbling noise from oil or something. he reaken its normal, but he's had alot of trouble with his and it runs like a bucket.

mine seems to be runing ok, just a bit of a racket out of the engine thats hard to pinpoint.oil pressure isnt to high,idle is fine. any ideas.

Re: slight knock

Was the car sitting on an angle? I have heard a similar knock like that when cars idle on an angle or on a hill, its the oil slaping the crank.

Re: slight knock

Yep mine does that when parked on the steep incline driveway at home. the oil moves towards the rear of the sump, hence the crank slaps the oil.
