85 Seville 4.1 Knocking?
As stated I have a 85 seville with a 4.1 (34000 mi). The problem is that after a long drive at interstate speed the motor sound like it has a knock coming from the front drivers side of the motor. I suspected the vacume pump so I removed it after driving the car long enough to get it to make the knocking sound. that stoped it. So I put the new vac. pump on then a couple days later after driving at highway speed it started knocking agian.If I let it sit for a while it wont do it and it won't do it on short trips or if my avg. speed is below 55mph or so. I am suspecting the p/s pump maybe? any one heard of or had this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Never heard of it, but the best way to diagnose it would simply be to remove the accessory drive belts one at a time when hot to try and isolate the problem.
