Then changed oil with 5w-30 synthetic, have been driving it for about 500 miles now and the cold knock seems to be getting worse and I can faintly smell burning oil when it is idling as I let it warm up before driving off. Oil lht doesn't stay on a bit too long on cold starts? I had a mysterious one, day after an oil change on startup sounded like a valve knock, It on some days was incredibly bad, but always went away after a bit. @mnhockeydude Want some fun and a chance to impress the nehbors?

Mitsubishi Diamante Questions - horn has stopped working

Bought some sea foam thinking it was the lifters and sprayed a can in the intake and poured some in the oil. Oil gets hot and thins out and one rod starts to starve for oil because the clearances are too large from wear. Cold knock is usually a worn piston slapping the bore until the engine warms and expands the aluminum piston to take up the slop. In the old days when cars had forged pistons instead of cast, they all knocked when cold. There mht be 2 things going on, Seeping oil burning off and something knocking.
