Engine noise on deceleration... Rod Knock?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, my car has developed something as of late and it's disturbing me. The other day it rained real hard(not sure if it matters) and as I was driving around, I could hear a strange clattering/squeaking noise for about one second after letting off of my gas pedal. I figured it was just something related to the water(a bearing or something in the driveline) but I drove the car today and it's doing the same thing. I'm worried that it may be rod knock or piston slap, but I'm not sure how to tell. I may take a video of it later so you guys can give me some opinions. Any ideas for now?

Actually I have a new idea. My throwout bearing retainer has been causing rattling a lot since I replaced my clutch a few months ago and I'm wondering if I got some water on the TOB and it's screeching(I didn't put my dust shield back on the bell housing). The sound is definitely from the rear driver's side of the engine, so that would make some sense. I'll keep you guys updated.
