Hello everyone! I am kinda new to the forums so sorry if something like this has already been discussed! Basically I'm worried about my car, but haven't had time to take it in "or the money" to have it checked out. It makes a clicking like noise under engine load, but only when in gear. If coasting or hardly applying the gas it's fine, but accelerating or climbing hills makes it very noticeable. The main reason I'm worried is because I may have bent a valve... this was my first car with a standard transmission, and within the first week of owning it I somehow miss-shifted from 3rd-2nd at 90mph.... it over-revved but I quickly slammed the clutch in.... Then the next day I noticed the clicking... I'm not sure if it was doing it before but I don't think so. The car still has plenty of power and I get very good mileage "hit 41.6MPG the other day!" but i'm still worried I did serious harm. Any ideas? Or am I screwed?
