If it's a Loud knock, it's probably in the lower end, like a connecting rod.

If it's a tick from the valvetrain area, check the valve clearance adjustment.

It could also be a cam bearing problem as well. They don't have hydraulic lifters.

"Why does my '92 Honda Prelude knock so loud?"


It could be among the things CJ mentioned, most likely the valve lash needs adjusting. Or also spark knock caused by the incorrect fuel grade or a problem with the ignition system and/or mechanical timing.

Do you have a Check Engine Light?
