Re: loud engine noise

The tapping noise may be the throwout arm vibrating on the bellhousing. Mine did this after we put the manual in and I was convinced it was a lifter. Turned out we handn't put the return spring on the clutch pedel which keeps bit of tension in the cable. When did the cruise stop working? Does it turn on but not set? It may have a vac leak in the vac system. Your pedel switches may need to be adjusted toward the pedel a bit more.

Re: loud engine noise

Look under the car on the driver side and on the side of the bell housing there is a metal case that covers the area that the throwout arm sticks out of. The clutch cable enters the front of this. Its held on by one nut. I started the car and wiggled under to see what was actually going on. If it is this when you are driving and you put the clutch in or just rest your foot on the clutch the noise will dissapear. Thats how I dscovered there was no return spring on the pedel. WTB56 helped me out with this one.
