SOURCE: Rod bearing knocking

These procedures may be performed with the engine in the car. If additional overhaul work is to be performed, it will be easier if the engine is removed and mounted on an engine stand. Most stands allow the block to be rotated, giving easy access to both the top and bottom. These procedures require certain hand tools which may not be in your tool box. A cylinder ridge reamer, a numbered punch set, piston ring expander, snapring tools and piston installation tool (ring compressor) are all necessary for correct piston and rod repair. These tools are commonly available from retail tool suppliers; you may be able to rent them from larger automotive supply houses.

  • Remove the cylinder head.Elevate and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  • Drain the engine oil.
    Remove any splash shield or rock guards which are in the way and remove the oil pan.
    Using a numbered punch set, mark the cylinder number on each piston rod and bearing cap. Do this BEFORE loosening any bolts.
    Loosen and remove the rod cap nuts and the rod caps. It will probably be necessary to tap the caps loose; do so with a small plastic mallet or other soft-faced tool. Keep the bearing insert with the cap when it is removed.
    Use short pieces of hose to cover the bolt threads; this protects the bolt, the crankshaft and the cylinder walls during removal.
    One piston will be at the lowest point in its cylinder. Cover the top of this piston with a rag. Examine the top area of the cylinder with your fingers, looking for a noticeable ridge around the cylinder. If any ridge is felt, it must be carefully removed by using the ridge reamer. Work with extreme care to avoid cutting too deeply.When the ridge is removed, carefully remove the rag and ALL the shavings from the cylinder. No metal cuttings may remain in the cylinder or the wall will be damaged when the piston is removed. A small magnet or an oil soaked rag can be helpful in removing the fine shavings.
    After the cylinder is de-ridged, squirt a liberal coating of engine oil onto the cylinder walls until evenly coated. Carefully push the piston and rod assembly upwards from the bottom by using a wooden hammer handle on the bottom of the connecting rod.
    The next lowest piston should be gently pushed downwards from above. This will cause the crankshaft to turn and relocate the other pistons as well. When the piston is in its lowest position, repeat the steps used for the first piston. Repeat the procedure for each of the remaining pistons.
    When all the pistons are removed, clean the block and cylinder walls thoroughly with solvent.

This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

SOURCE: loud knocking coming from lower timing cover area 1995 toyota camry 2.2

I do think that loose key and keyway could cause the knock. It would also explain the loss of power, due to the engine timing not being spot on.
A knocking big end or main bearing would not improve at higher revs, it would get worse.

Act soon before the keyway in the crankshaft itself is too badly damaged, by removing the crankshaft pulley, lower timing belt cover, and belt guide. You can then get a precise idea of what exactly is worn. This may assist

You may actually have to find an oversize key, for a neat fit in the crankshaft. It may be necessary to file or grind it to fit. Engineering supply houses stock them, eg

My 2004 trailbazer makes a knocking noise whan started, it gets quieter as ou drive it, but does not go away


Hello
Any knocking noise is more than likely due to worn connecting rod bearings, Crankshaft main bearings or piston or piston pin noise. Connecting rod bearing knocks and piston related noise quite some with warm up, piston noise tends to go completely away after about 5 minutes of run time, but there are exceptions to that run like a cracked piston skirt, crankshaft bearings don't quite very much. It would be my best quests without hearing the noise that you may have either a connecting rod or piston related noise. The best thing to do here is have a trained ear listen to the noise, any experienced technician will know very quickly what the noise is and where it is coming from. These types of noises are only common on high miles engines, with at least 100,000 miles on them is the general run or the engine has been run very low on oil repeated times, or the oil not changed at regular intervals or the engine has been severely overheated. My experience? 35 years as a dealer technican. I'm Master certified in all phases of auto and light truck repair.

NOISE WHEN COLD THEN GOES AWAY WHEN WARMS UP,SOMEONE SAID MAIN BEARINGS GOING BAD


Hard to say over the internet but I will try to explain. If the noise is a distict KNOCK KNOCK and it sounds like it is coming from the bottom of the engine, then it most likely is a rod or main bearing. If it is a TAP TAP noise that sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine, then most likely a valve lifer is failing/failed.
the fact that it goes away when the car is warm, makes me lean towards a bad lifter. Normaly if a bearing is bad and knocking, the noise doesn't go away.

The KNOCK noise will be somewhat hollow sounding and the TAP TAP sound will be more solid. If the KNOCK KNOCK is solid, then a rod or main bearing has most likely failed to the point that a new/reman engine will be needed.

Low oil pressure, and light knocking noise from back half of motor. (after engine is warm)


If the pressure is low it will turn the light on. If you have a light and hear knocking it's a sign that a rod or main bearing has worn to the point that it's allowing oil to escape from the crank, thereby lowering pressure to all other components. There is no "fix" for that short of a bearing replacement,
Expensive, and most times not worthwhile as debris from the bearing gets into the oiling passages and causes more problems shortly after the repair. Best option is a scrapyard engine or total rebuild.

My 96 chrysler lhs has a knocking/rattleing sound coming from the bottom engine and as you push down on the gas the faster you drive the louder it rattles


if the noise is coming from the bottom end of the motor then you have either bad connecting rod bearings or bad crank bearings.if when you snap the throttle you hear a double knock then its connecting rod bearing if not then its crank bearing.a collapsed piston can sound low in the engine and its usually a dull knock noise.if you have the engine running and the noise is there and you pull off one plug wire at a time(and reconnect it after checking) and the noise goes away or mostly goes away with the wire unhooked then the cylinder that the noise changed is the cylinder that has a bad piston.

Hyundai Balance Shaft Bearing making noise?


Possible. It's hard to give you an accurate cause, since I'm not able
to hear the sound. Most of the time, when you hear a slight wrapping
sound, it's a rod bearing,or crank bearing. When the rod bearing goes,
you'll know it,since it will knock like an SOB.

Knocking noise in engine 1998 jeep cherokee


Knocking noise can come from one of three places. Broken flywheel, Worn rod or main bearing. (bearing problems usually are accompanied by lowered oil pressure) An experienced technician can usually tell which is which. If bearing wear is on the rod bearings only and is light, it can usually be corrected. Main bearings require engine removal and is far more expensive. The oil pump should be replaced with either, but is not the cause of the problem. Extreme wear on bearings will also damage crankshaft. If so, it must be replaced.

When car is running, light noise in motor. sounds like a rod bearing. What kind of mechanics do I need to do to it?


You need highly skilled and experienced technicians to both identify and repair this problem. (but only ones with yellow hats...only kidding!) You can differentiate between a rod bearing and a lifter problem by increasing rpm's from idle. Generally a lifter noise will go away, a rod noise will get louder. Rod or main bearings also lower oil pressure when they wear. It takes lots of experience to tell the difference between a rod or main noise but generally with today's crankshaft construction, neither are repairable using anything but a new crank, unless wear is extremely slight.A rod bearing can be replaced in-car. A main cannot.
Both jobs are expensive.
