Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
My 94 Oldsmobile Ciera Cutlass S developed an increasingly loud "thwack - thwack - thwack" sound in the engine, that was in synch with the engine RPMs. This began about 2 miles from home. I limped home and got the car into my parking spot. This is not the fan hitting something; it's inside the engine. I would describe the sound as metal hitting metal.
I suspect that the condition is terminal, given the age/value of the car. However, I would appreciate suggestions/guesses as to what may be wrong, so that I can judge better whether to make any attempt to diagnose/repair, or sell, or junk.
That sound of a thwack could be one of your cylinders has bottomed out ! If you experienced an overheated engine ! Then that could be the problem that includes major engine repair ! This work involves with removing the oil pan to get at the connecting rod and disconnecting the bottom of your cylinder ! Or replace the whole crankshaft ( part of the heart of your engine ). I would be so costly just to rebuild your engine if your can afford it! If your can't afford the costly repair than junk it ! I would !!
