Screw you man, you come in here and on your first post you ask what seems to be a stupid question. We've had people do that just to screw with us. Maybe you should have been a bit more detailed than just saying "a loud clack clack sound."

Looks like your mommy needs to help you type out your responses. Nice use of spelling and puctuation.

seeing as how we dont treat our members like this , i will answer your question, a very loud clack sound can be several things , low fuel pressure can cause a fuel knock which can sound like that , probably the most common cause of what it sounds like you are referring to
