Okay, so after putting the car up on jacks in the garage, I have come to find this actually is rod knock. Pretty obvious now as it is very consistent. I dropped the oil only to find it was blacker than black, and after removing the oil filter, small copper shavings came out with it. Damn I wish this thing had a dipstick... I would have seem how bad the oil looked and never bought it. But here we are. Looks like I am in for a couple weeks of learning how to swap an engine and get this thing back on the road.
