What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

In my seemingly-unending-car-shopping for next week’s CA trip, I’ve encountered a car I don’t know much about - the late 90's Lexus LS400. I know it’s a full size RWD sedan with a 1UZ V8, but that’s about it.

Are they good? I appreciate the clean styling, and functionally this may be a good way to upgrade from the rusted-to-shit Crown Vic without losing much of what I like about it. A bit smaller (good) with similar power and drivetrain layout. My concerns would be driving feel (are they super cushy/isolated? I do not want that) and reliability.

Just a passing thought.
