            I would do a bit more investigating before investing in a crank, even if it is rod knock you won't necessarily need a new crank. Just guessing but does not sound like rod knock to me, more like the exhaust rattling against something. I would drain the oil and cut up the oil filter paying attention as to what comes out.

            Are the engine mounts still solid?

                no i dont mind but get the one you have checked out first. i just heard the vid. that doesn't sound like exhaust clatter to me. take the exhaust off and post up another vid. if by removing the exhaust piping, the sound goes away then we're ok, if not, we'll go from there.

                    you need to take the crank out and have a machine shop look at it and take measurements. you can't tell by looking.

                    and yes might as well change out those things, as well as bearings and seals.

                          Well you can look at this way.... Keep a Rwd thats going to need a rebuild soon(might as well put some goodies on while the engine is out) or get the Fwd that already needs a rebuild(might as well put some goodies on while the engine is out).

                            M-A-C-H-I-N-E S-H-O-P.

                            there is NO way any of us will be able to tell based on one sounds. you MUST take it apart and have the machine shop actually look, feel, weigh, measure the crank, rods, and block. that is the ONLY right way to find out everything.

                            all you have to do is pull the engine, split block from head, and rip the block apart, pack it up, and drop it off. there should be no charge to diagnose.

                            if the rods are bent, which i doubt, then no you don't need rods. you will need bearings, and probably a crankshaft as well. im guessing the block is probbabyl ok.

                            DO NOT GET THE CRANKSHAFT TURNED NO MATTER WHAT THE SHOP TELLS YOU. POLISH ONLY IF IT IS WITHIN HONDA SPECS.

                            trust me it will save you headaches.

                              yea rod bearing or wrist pin pull 'er out and strip 'er down! invest in a set of micrometers and plastigage and you can get a good idea of where everything is yourself..

                                no that will only tell him if clearances are screwed up.

                                the shop can measure for roundness on the journals and surfaces, inspect the nitride coating to see if it's still in tact, analyze scuffing and burn marks if any exist, check for balance issues, etc.

                                there is a right way and a wrong way to see if parts are usable in this situation.

                                  if you know how to use a micrometer you can determine out-of-round and taper of the journals and mains.. if those are in spec odds are your coatings are still in tact.. i never said you could do it all, i just said you'd have a good idea whether it's worth sending the crank to the shop to begin with.. if you got one way out of wack save yourself the money and start searching for another one..

                                      though some wiill disagree . . . honda cranks are nitride coated, and by "turning" the crank you COULD effectively remove that coating. You also have to run oversized bearings to be within Honda's specs. Oversized bearings is not a huge issue, if they turn it and can leave some of that coating on it.

                                      the last crankshaft i had had been turned. so much so that coating was gone, which is why even with oversized bearings it still was too loose.

                                            is the car running hot? if so. check your water pump gear. i just had a noise similar to that and my water pump was shot. the whole gear fell off after i took the plastic casing off.

                                                how do you know the crank is fine? did you have it checked? don't go by sound alone.
