Default Engine problems continued

Well, my check engine light/#4 Cyl Misfire issue is past. Good. Had a burned valve. Shop replaced the valve and no more codes. NOW!


I had to make a 150 mile trip on Thursday night, right after picking up the car from the shop (see above). Half way to my destination I started hearing a tap, tap, taping noise from under the hood. Sounded like a stuck lifter. Got to my destination and the tapping just sounded a little louder. Called the shop in the morning and discussed. Decision was to check the oil and return in the afternoon. So far, so good.

Late afternoon I started heading for Ashland, KY from just north of Parkersberg, WV. Out on the freeway the noise starts getting louder and finally, after about 40 miles I can't stand to abuse anymore and pulled into a service station and called a tow truck.

$480 later we dropped it off at the service shop and I went home to bed. It was a really long, expensive day.

Got a call from the shop this morning. Spun bearing on #4 cylinder. Doesn't look like there is any damage to the crank, so we are going to replace the bearing and see if it works.

Question for the group...WHY? Plenty of oil and no indication of low oil pressure. 84,000 miles on the motor. Any suggestions?
