    Hey Nery, how's it going?

    Motor issues suck, my sister has an 05 sunfire, she didn't like to change the oil in her car. 103k miles the stock motor gave out (rod knock also)
    I just changed her motor out for and ION/Cobalt motor.

    Whats up tom, been a while huh... yeah man I didnt wanna believe it was rod knock at first because I'm always checking the oil and changing it on time so i went around and changed the chain, tensioner and everything else that's also known to cause ticking noises but no luck. The block was rebuilt last july though and the guys gave me a 1 yr warranty so luckily i wont have to spend any money fixing it other than a new gasket. I had an suv/truck back into my car at school while it was parked and they ended up ruining the paint on the 02 front and leaving a huge crack in the cf hood Sad so back to the stock front end
