    Once you have a knock, bearing replacement will not help as the damage has already been done to the crankshaft. It will need to be machined or you will need a new crank/bearing set. The water pump replacement is unrelated.

Can you fix a piston rod knocking without pulling motor,by dropping oil pan?


Depends on the car, Some you can some you cant. Generally speaking if the car has rear wheel drive and conventional gearbox you got a chance. Only way to tell is to look under the car and see how accessible the sump pan is

Have the torque converter checked to make sure the bolts are not loose connecting it to the flywheel,and if it is in the engine(the knock)then remove the oil pan,and check for play in the rod bearings,if there is,the crankshaft would have to be resurfaced,or replaced along with new rod,and main bearings.

The connecting rods are probably frozen to the crank from overheating or the bearings are frozen. Pull the oil pan off and inspect the connecting rod bearings for a blueish coloring which is a sign they overheated. If they are you'll need to replace them all and have the crank and connecting rods turned.

Jeep cherokee with a 4.0 6 cyl when a start the motor cold it sounds like a diesel engine, lots of clanking. last a couple of seconds then goes away. replaced oil pump. no help there.


Lots of clanking when first started sounds like a worn rod bearing. Check the engine compartment and rev engine to listen for knocking. It will get progressively worse as time goes by. Nothing to do except buy/install new crankshaft kit from autozone, about $300+.

In the mean time, just change oil and put in some oil additive to lessen the knocking. High speeds will accelerate the wear of the rod bearing. The rod bearing is installed inside of the piston rod. This bearing goes around the crankshaft. It has very tight tolerances down to the thousands of an inch. When it gets worn, metal will flake off of the soft bearing material and contaminate your oil more. If you catch it early enough, you can replace the bearing without too much trouble. Here is what you need to do.

Find the bad bearing. If you hear the knocking with the engine on and under the hood, disconnect a sparkplug. If the knocking goes away, that is the bad bearing. Do this disconnecting/reconnecting until you identify the bad bearings. Now disconnect battery. Next loosen drive belt- done from steering pump. Loosen 2-13mm bolts on back, one on top and one on bracket on bottom. On bottom right-hand side of pump will be a long adjusting bolt. Loosen turn this bolt counter clockwise to loosen drive belt. Now jack vehicle from the frame, vehicle will raise but tires will remain on ground. keep going as high as your jack will go. Install jack stands on frame. This extends your suspension and keep body raised. Drain oil, remove steering damper. It's the shock absorber looking thing connected to your tie rods/center link. The easiest way to remove the oil pan is to get a 3/8 inch socket adapter for a cordless drill. The bolts will come out in a hurry if you do this. Keep track of where the double sided bolts are, they secure the fuel line brackets. After all are removed, wiggle, tug, and pull pan out. Now you will see the large main caps and the rod caps. The mains are bolted to the block and the rods will rotate up and down with the spinning of the crankshaft. Spin the crankshaft to see. Each bearing cap needs to be marked. Use a center punch and hammer to mark from front to rear. 1 mark for rod cap 1 and so forth. You should end up with 6 marks on rod cap #6. Do the marking on the front side of the cap so you know how it fits back. Remove the rod caps that corresponded to the bad bearing identified earlier. Remove nut on cap. Wiggle cap back and forth until it comes loose. It will eventually come out. Inside the cap, you will see the bearing. It is basically a liner for the cap that rides on the crankshaft. there is one on the top of the rod too. Remove it by pushing rod up into cylinder and pulling it out with your hand. Ensure you remember the orientation of the bearings. One side has a notch, the other has a key that fits into a hole on the rod. Now you have the bearing in hand, check for scoring, or wearing on the face. Check the web for a nice color picture. Feel the crankshaft bearing area with your finger nail. It should be smooth and not ridged. Purchase some plastigage along with a standard .000 bearing. Clean rod surface, install new bearing and plastigage. Tighten to torque. Remove cap and measure plastigage for your oil clearance. Now you can purchase the correct bearing to match your oil clearance. If you don't have a repair manual, now's a good time to get it. It has bearing tolerances for you to get the correct bearing. After you have the correct bearings, use oil additive to grease up the new bearing/crank surfaces. Put everything back together, put some quality magnets inside of your oil pan near the drain hole and cross your fingers.

Changing rod bearings


Yes you will have to raise engine to pull pan, but more importantly is why do you need to change rod bearings? If they need replacing you will probably have to change the mains as well as rings and so on. If you have run it knocking, you could have damaged the crankshaft and new bearings won't stay. Suggest you check a little deeper before going to all this expense.

ROD KNOCKING BUT NO LOSS OF POWER


if you want to replace just one rod you should go ahead and rebuild the engine.you say the motor is still running fine?if you can pull the oil pan off you might be able to identify which rod is knocking,if so you may be able to replace just the bearings on that particular rod.that is if the crank isnt scarred.the only way to know if the crank is scarred is to pull the pan off.as far as i know,the only way to get the pan off is to pull the motor,unfortunatlly.one other al ternative is to buy a junk yard motor.which isnt a bad idea,if you have to pull the motor out anyway.
