Karjunkie and Mr Shiftright, thanks for your input
The bearings sound exactly like you say karjunkie, it worse at first but it still knocks real bad later.. But at this point it’s setting. The mechanic was the one who told me that it was a bearing and I basically will need another engine, $3,200 at their cost for an engine with 65,000 miles.
Mr shiftright, the car never run hot staying slightly less than half way point and the oil light never come on until I pulled over and stopped with the engine still running. But when I took off again the oil light went back off. So, sure it’s not operating properly. And yes, it seems to be strange to me as well. And you are correct, I probably can’t prove anything.
I plan to go back to the garage and speak to the manager and see if they will assume some responsibility. I have done business with them and they do seem to be good people. But it’s a large sum of money to assume fault.
Thanks for your input
