1996 knocking at low idle

Post by jdn40 »



my 96 has a knocking sound at low idle . if I bump up the idle a bit it goes any . any ideas ? runs great . the idle knob at the gas fill is frozen so that's not an option . just sitting at a red light it is fine just seems to make the knock when just starting out and goes away .

I might try a carb sync before anything else.
