    we were traveling back home 350 miles then check engine light came on. At first souded like there was no oil, then the sound was much louder when the gas was applied. We immediately found a gas station. I put 2 quarts of oil in the oil was only a bit low. Turned the engine back on the sound did not improve. We had been driving with the air conditioner since it helped to defog the windows on a 32 degree night.

Assuming the engine oil level is normal, knocking would be lack of oil on the bearings and ticking would be lack of oil for the lifters and valves. I would be checking oil pressure next.

Engine Knocking / No Power

Dosent sound good. Oil light on means you lost oil pressure. and the knocking sound is the damage done due to low pressure. Start looking for another engine or another van.

I had the instrument cluster replaced in my 2000 windstar and now the engine is knocking.Engine light comes on for about three days and then it goes off.What could be wrong with my vehicle?

I don't think your gauge cluster has anything to do with your engine knock. I do, however, think that your engine knock has something to do with your check engine light. Start by checking your oil level. A knock could be something simple, or it could be something serious. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to diagnose a 'knock' without being able to actually HEAR it first-hand, so I'll just throw you a few bones. If you live in a colder climate (especially this time of year) you might want to ask a certified mechanic what weight oil you should be running. A lack of oil to the top end of the engine could cause a knock. Bad gas could cause a knock (fill tank at a different station than the last one you went to). A timing issue could also cause a knock. If the knock persists or gets worse, take it to a mechanic for a diagnosis immediately. If the simple fixes don't do it, it won't get any better on its own.

Engine knocking noise in 2000 saab 9-3 SE?

It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped

Loud ticking/knocking/rattling sound when I start/accelerate

hi is it miss-firing as it sounds like a knocking noise can be anything but if you can feel it on the accelerater pedal then the noise sounds like its on the inlet valve side which would transfere the noise up the throttle body where the accelerater is located it could be something as simple as a tappet come loose to a burned valve you need to have a look do a compression test and take the rocker cover off see if theres anything come loose yates210456
