Shop close to 215/10 interchange...who needs it!!!

Just wanting to see who can take a look at my car, I finally got it running from the clutch problem fixing. Now after jumping it and trying to charge the battery by taking a 45 min freeway run...I came back off the freeway and when I got to a stop light car started to pop loudly like I am running one or two cylinders short. Limped the car home and don't want to touch it.
Just wondering if there is a place close by form the supra community that might be able to see it. I was gonna get the valve cover gaskets replaced (have parts from Curt) and spark plugs changed ASAP but can't do it in the car port and was wondering if that was my problem. Anybody wanna help a brother out!

Your ignition timing might be slightly advanced. You might want to have the engine timing checked. You'll need an engine timing gun and a TSM, it's relatively easy to do.

Well, the car before I put it away for a month before I could get the clutch master cylinder fixed was having a small ticking noise. After I fixed the clutch, took it out for the drive, no real big noises, drove fine on the freeway, but then really erupted with big noises when I got off the freeway and stopped at the light to go home.

Is the poping noise like a backfire noise? Or is the poping sound comming from the engine bay?

Here's a few more questions for you:

1. Does the car idle without the poping noise?
2. Does the poping noise come when you rev the engine up?
3. Did the check engine light come on?
4. Is the poping sound like metal crunches or an eletrical poping sound (like wires sparking)?

You might want to post on the NA section and Mk4 section to get more opinons on this problem.

Because I have no clue how or exactly where the poping sound is comming from, I'm thinking its an engine timing issue.

Hey Mike,

Yeah was gonna call you up but hadn't got around to it yet. I think I may be able to make the drive to your house but not sure yet to see what this noise is.

at first the car will idle with just a slight ticking. then when I rev it a little the noise will start...it's a loud almost exhaust leak sounding pop or banging noise.
and the check engine light hasn't come on yet *crossing fingers*
yeah I posted in the NA forum but no luck...maybe I should go straight to the mk4 forum

could be a possible spun bearing but to tell you the truth it would be better if i just went down to your pad and heard it myself is there any silver in the oil if you pull your dip stick?

Hey Mike I'll call you tomorrow (thurs) after 4. If you want to drop by on the way home, just go down the 215 exit washington...I'll tell you later. Anyways it will probably be easier if you do it on your way home than coming back this way from your place
