Hello, im new here, hoping to find a solution to my problem.
I have a 1999 Olds Alero with a 2.4L engine. The problem is one day after school I was headed to work and my car lost compression at the same time the engine started knocking. I pulled over, and shut the car off. I popped the hood to check everything, and to the best of my knowledge everything was fine including the oil. So I turned the car on,
and the knocking began again; however, when idling it knocked just a few times every second(?) when i tapped the gas the knocking was constant. The knocking is in the very most top end if the engine, I was wondering if anyone had any Idea what this could be and how I could fix it? The thing is im a college student with limited funds, so id like to have some idea of what i might be getting myself into trying to fix it.
