| | Scary Clicking Sounds w/ Performance Issues
I have a 2000 camaro 3.8 t5.. I'm really hoping I can figure out what's going on. So anyways, I turn on my car the other day after not driving it for a day or 2. All of a sudden I hear a "click, click, click, click, click..." very fast coming from the engine bay and when I rev the engine and drive it sounds like an STI almost. I can also hear it clicking a little bit slower from the exhaust. It will do this until I drive anywhere from a half of a block to 1 mile. While it's clicking, my car's power is diminished. All of a sudden, when it stops clicking, EVERYTHING is normal and it regains it's performance without any noise or problems. I'm completely puzzled. It seems if my engine gets cold after letting it sit for awhile it will have these problems. But if my engine is still warm after turning it off and then I turn it on to go somewhere again it will not have these signs and symptoms. Any ideas where to start?
