    I'm looking for a shop to replace my engine. I'm currently road tripping so distance isn't a problem. I thought it might be a head gasket but it hasn't lost coolant. It had a little bit of white smoke weeks ago one night but hasn't smoked since. Ive heard a slight knock once a week when startup.

    If you can get the car to Madison, @ericbecky might be able to assist;).

    Or maybe he has a recommendation in Chi town:).

    Good luck and keep us posted (y).
