my spi engine is making noises. i cant describe it too well, but they are like rattling or banging noises. it sounds like maybe a piston is hanging up or something. it is the worst on cold start, but it gradually gets better when the engine heats up and then the sound all but disappears. it happened early in the morning when i was rushing to school. the night before i had been going way too fast. i started the car and then floored it immediately. now it has been about a week and its been the same thing.

what is the problem. note: i have 55 thousand miles on the engine, but i drive it at about 70% everday and routinely push the car to its limits. i have had the clutch replaced once about 7 thousand miles ago. any ideas?

In my opinion, if the engine isn't shaking abnormaly, it doesen't sound like a pistion problem. you may have a valve problem.
