    Nah bruh it's either dirty fuses or whatever you call or you are using the wrong type of fuel (87 or 91 etc) and your car computer doesn't adjust the piston timings

    I had a knocking noise in my car. Also had trouble with gears. Can't remember what made me think that. Any way I assumed it was a gearbox. Been strapped for cash I parked the car up and I let it sit for 5 yrs. Eventually I had a look at it with my uncle and it was just a centre bearing to the tail shaft which blew out 🤣🤣🤣 Then I had to replace the barrel for some reason to get the car started. Needed a new fuel pump and cleaned the tank. Now the timing is out also lol

    I had a 2006 Honda Accord LX Special Edition that at one point started knocking, and my mom had noticed it. The dealership I've been taking it to for oil change, during the first few years, never said anything about it. So when I took it to a different dealership to get an oil change, they brought it to my attention. It was cracked and broken barrings in the water pump, so I got it replaced with a Bosch
