I got an infinity 2005 g 35. I'm starting to hear a knocking noise. I don't know if its the engine, It sounds like it's coming from the side somewhere but definitely under the Hood.? Idk

if the knock speeds up with rpm increase then it definitely is the engine. if it is a solid sounding knock that would be bottom end. if it is more of a hollow knock or more like a tick then could be top end...lifters, exhaust leak or check to see if anything is hitting your cooling fan.

So my 2001 chevrolet prizm quit running, it made a horrible knocking sound. So my dad replaced the connector rod and bearings, and the sound was pretty much completely gone. Today(2 days later) the...

It sounds like the crankshaft was damaged and is wearing out the new bearings he put in. There is a little play in the bearing were it meets the crankshaft and the is the knock your hearing. I might only make the sound at a specific RPM. Check also the oil screen is not cloged up and starving the engine of vital lubrication. You can purchase a Crank kit from any local auto store that will contain a remachined crank shaft and all the bearings needed to rebuild the bottom end of the motor. You will have to pull the motor to peform this action.
