Transaxel has a loud knocking noise when you put it in drive. It has been there I was told since 32,000 miles. At this time it has gotten louder. The transmission functions fine, just have a noise. You can back up and you don't hear the noise. We got the car and it only has 114,000 miles on it now. It is a 95' Sedan Deville Cad.
Would appreciate your help. Thank You.

Make sure you are running premium fuel. Also check egr tubes and make sure they are clean and also check egr vlave. May be clogged or just plain worn out.

Why does my 98 expedition make a pinging noise at 25 to 35 mph then goes away


this noise is detonation. It is an uncontrolled untimed ignition from hot spots in the combustion chamber igniting an incorrect air/fuel mixture. IT is harmful if left un repaired as it has the capability of melting holes in pistons.. Run the fault codes or check /change the air/ fuel mixture settings and ignition timing of the engine . Most engines run around 10-12 degrees advanced and any more than that will help cause the problem, as the spark occurs too early and the extra pressure built up by the combustion will combust the rest of the mixture in the cylinder. Fuel quality is important so if you are using a standard grade fuel( 89-91 octane rated) fill with a premium fuel with a higher fuel octane rating . Give a miss to E- fuel mixtures

While going 40 -50 mph and then accelerating enough to kick in the passing gear the engine makes a rattling clacking like sound, its a 4.6 ltr v-8


It sounds like the engine is "pinging" as you are speeding up. If so, this is often caused by plugged EGR passages at the intake elbow or a non-functioning EGR valve. The EGR valve allows a small amount of exhaust gasses back into the intake manifold to slow and cool the combustion down slightly to prevent the fuel from burning too fast [which we hear as a pinging sound] and it helps reduce emissions at the tailpipe. When the valve quits working or the passages get blocked the pinging sound will be heard when accelerating or at higher speeds & heavier loads. Pinging is not good for an engine and should be checked out as soon as possible. A quick test drive with a good service tech should quickly narrow down the cause of the noise. Hope this helps and good luck!

I have an 04 Pontiac Grand Prix with 63,000 miles. My problem is pinging when i accelerate. I have changed fuel from 87-89 & now i'm using 93. The pinging is less with the 93 but still there. If i only...


It sounds like your timing is out. Too far BTDC. If you do not know the timing - advance it slightly and try it until it stops pinging. If there is a hill in your area - drive up it with the throttle well opened to se if it pings. Try this before adjusting timing to get a base line to see if it improves with timing adjustments.

There are to many items to list on here but could be the knock sensor not reading properly and advancing or retarding the timing or could be a problem internally in the engine. Could also be a plugged up catalytic converter.

Dodge Ram 2500 engine ping


Your ignition timing may have advanced too far. Or it is now where it should be and is making more cylinder pressure during combustion causing the gasoline to ignite to early causing detonation or ping.

Make sure the ignition timing is correct. If it is try better fuel meaning the octane rating.

If you can go up to the next octane level. For example if you are using 87 go to 89 and see if it goes away. 3 of my wife's last cars a 1986 Honda Prelude, 2000 Neon, and a 2003 Neon had some ping under medium to hard acceleration. She switched to 89 octane and the ping went away completely in each vehicle. Each of the vehicle had a good deal of miles on them.

The 2003 Neon has 75000 miles on it now and runs great on 89 octane. About a year ago I tried 87 Octane in her car and the ping came right back.
