hey guys I just bought my first stang today and im pretty excited about it... i bought it for $750 with a very good body and interior but a realllly loud knock from either the engine or the transmission. Its a 95 v6 automatic and I drove it about 4 miles back to my house with this knock and it sounds like either a rod knock or a transmission knock. I have watched videos of both and can't tell the difference between the two... now the reason I am thinking it is the trans and not the motor is when I would try to accelerate from a stop I had to almost floor the gas just to make the car start to move and it didnt seem like it wanted to go anywhere but after it started going i got it up to the speed limit. The knock gets louder as the car accelerates but is still pretty loud even at idle. What are the symptoms of both the rod knock and trans knock other than the obvious noise? I am most likely building a 351 cleveland I can get at a pretty good deal and go carburated but thats a long way down the road and if i could fix this car and drive it around in the meantime I would like to do that to. Any input is helpful thanks guys!
