There's a loud sound similar to the "Wheel of Fortune" after engine warm up. On acceleration it goes faster and mellows. I've tried everything in my power to fix whatever makes that noise. I made an appointment for service however anyone who could shine some light on what is wrong, maybe from past experience or what not, i'd surely be grateful before an engine rebuild takes place.

is it RPM or wheel speed related?

Mainly as rpm reduce, at a light, or during idle. I'm beginning to think a valve adjustment will solve it. Who knows?

You sure it's from inside the engine? I had a cracked fan shroud in my 89 LX that would make noise as it warmed up.
