Hi Anonymous, I'm sorry but I just loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Good luck and have a nice day.

98 Olds Intrigue (GM 3800) All of a sudden the service engine soon like is flashing and the engine runs very rough when in gear. Especially noticeable when idling in gear... any ideas where to look?


First you need to do is get the trouble code out of the computer this will get you in the right area of the problem then you can trouble shoot it.Sounds like it could be a EGR valve stuck in the open position.

It is a 6 cylinder engine, and it is making a knocking sound. We think it's either a thrown rod or a loose rod, what do i do?


If it's a 3800 you need to get a new balancer. They com apart and rattle. If the oil light is on and it is knocking that may be a bearing problem, but 3800 very seldom does have a bearing problem.
