Default 96 miata 1.8 sounds like rod knock but no sound while driving on the gas.

So yea... lt sounded like there was something in the head so I took the cover off and every thing looked ok. When it is at idle sound is not so bad. when first engaging the clutch sounds bad then quits when after about 1500 rpm. koncks a little harder than anything that would be in the head was my opinion so could have spun a bearing. hopefully not the main.

can you change the rod bearings while the eng is in the car?

Im about to take the tranny off to see if hopefully its a clutch/flywheel/ or throwout bearing

thanks in advance for any help.
