You may have cooked the engine.
It sounds like the head gasket may have blown, and you could be leaking coolant into the cylinders.

94 cavalier top end knock


From your description of the knocking, mileage, and oil crusted on the intake valves you need an engine or a complete rebuild of the original.

I've spoken to several mechanics on my Explorer. I lost oil pressure and drove it home from work around 30 miles, it started knocking really bad. I had just changed the oil, they are stating I wou


Yes, I agree. Overhaul, or new engine time. Loud knocking indicates your crankshaft bearings are toast-it won't be long before a piston rod goes through the block, or the engine siezes up. Overhauling an engine with a bad knocking means a complete teardown and rebuild-very time-consuming, labor intensive, and very, very expensive. You might want to consider a used replacement engine with low miles as a cheaper alternative. Good luck.

My Ford Taurus 2001 died while driving it. There was a small pop sound from under the hood before it died. It will restart but runs really really rough and dies again.


Hmmmmmmm.......I doubt your timing chain skipped.
Possible bad coil pack.Wasn't running hot or nearly out of oil?
If it's not a vacuum hose(large one)or fuel pump quitting, I'd say it's an internal engine problem.
Can you get someone to plug a code reader into it? don-ohio

GMC 4.3L DTC P0330 flashing MIL


P0330 - Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2)
A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block. This P0330 code may show up intermittently or the Service Engine light may be lit constantly. Other knock sensor related DTC codes include P0325.

Symptoms: You may notice drivability problems including a lack of power and perhaps some hesitation. There may also be other symptoms.

Causes: A code P0330 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
The "B" knock sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
There is a wiring short/fault in the knock sensor circuit

Possible Solutions:
Check the resistance of the knock sensor on bank 2 (compare it to factory specs)
Check for broken/frayed wires leading to the sensor
Replace the knock sensor on bank 2


Hope helps.

Why does my car throw the code P0100 and P0325? I have a 1995 Nissan 240sx. and it has a random misfire once in a while.


Hi,

Often a single issue can trigger multiple diagnostics codes, especially if the circuits are closely related.

Code P0100 = Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit malfunction

The computer has detected an issue with the MAF sensor.

- Verify the MAF sensor wiring is connected and wiring is in good condition
- Unplug and reconnect the MAF harness
- Check that voltage to the MAF sensor is within factory spec


Code P0325 = Knock Sensor # 1 Circuit malfunction

A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block.

- Check condition of the knock sensor wiring.
- Test the 'Ohms' reading of your Knock Sensor (undo the connector and measure the pins) to ensure it is within spec (ask Nissan for this measurement). If out of spec, replace the knock sensor.

Cheers,

I just had a Spring Maint. they call it, checked hoses/belts/air etc. changed oil/filter rotated tires. a week ago car started to run hot. Wasn't sure what was happening, took it in raidator cap...


I bet your thermostat is bad. I've run into the same problem. The only time your water pump will really need to be replaced is if the bearing on it goes out. Sounds like this mechanic was tryin to give you the run around. I'd start with the thermostat. The whole engine cooling system relies on the thermostat and it's kind of the weak point in the system.

Knock in my engine


DO NOT DRIVE or run this car until you resolve this.  Irreperable damage may already have been one, but if not, don't press your luck.
Sounds like you don't have any oil pressure, could be
oil pump bad (pretty rare unless you have 300K miles or more no regular oil changes) or 
oil pickup screen plugged up, If you or someone didn't change the oil regularly this is likely
obstruction in oil line (very unlikely)
defective oil filter or pressure relief valve (pretty unlikely)
good luck,
pleas rate all soutions
