94 EX Wagon 4cyl Automatic 223,000 miles

Post by alphamoon70 » Tue Feb 03, 2015 5:52 pm

I need some tech. advice and hope this is the right forum to post.
My 94 ex has been making a tapping noise for about a week now, gradually getting louder each day. The sound seems to be coming from the bottom left side (passenger side) of the engine near the tranmission and exhaust . It taps when i first start the car, gets quiet when in reverse and drive while sitting still and get loud as the cars starts to move. While driving at highway speeds it gets quiet, loud only between 1 and 40-45 mph. The trans fluid is full, the oil is full, and it's not leaking anywhere. Any idea what might be going on?
Thanks for any advice.

I have a knock on my subaru that you just described perfectly. That sucks but treat it nice and I would start watching your oil for pearl flakes, sorry.
