I am looking for a set of D16Z6 Connecting Rods. Used or Oem.

A friend just got 'Rod Kock' & I am hoping it's not a bent rod.
I may be pulling it apart and replacing the rods in it before he throws one but the car is just parked for now.:mellow:

Rod knock can mean spun bearings. You may need a new crankshaft too.

Hopefully it's just a bearing. Thanks for your input! I was wondering how reliable the D16's are too. They seem to be pretty stable motors from what i've seen.

They're reliable as long as you maintain them(ie, periodic tune-up, not over reving the crap out of them, etc.). The D16Y's are a little more iffy due to an "inferior" oiling system.

That's great then. Well I am going to pick it up Wednesday evening after work and see if I can find what exactly is wrong with it and then see what parts are needed so I guess I will keep you updated. Thanks!;)
