What happens when you drive without a gas cap

ok on todays automobiles the gas cap does more than just seal the gas tank. Now they run a return line to the tank. this does 2 things. it returns un used fuel and vapors back to the tank , and it pressurizes the tank to help improve the fuel pump.

Now as it is possible running without the gas cap may cause problems I am not 100 % positive that is your only problem.

It sound like the knock sensor is detecting the knock you mentioned and is trying to retard the timing to fix it . In doing so it has retarded it to far causing the engine to loose power and eventually stall. I would first replace the gas cap. then run a good gas additive to a full tank of gas to clean out any water and dirt that may have gotten into the tank while the cap was off. now the issue of the knock as you described. is it a knock or a ping? A knocking sound is loud metallic hammering noise. a ping is a ting not very loud. if it is a loud metallic sound I would have a reputable mechanic check it soon, as it could be a serious issue. Ping can be caused by bad or weak gas or cheap low octane gas. I would run a mid grade gas in it and see if it fixed the issue.

How to check for block in radiator

    • 1

      Secure your automobile on an level surface. The car should not be elevated or in any danger of slipping. Position an empty oil bucket underneath the radiator drain pipe. The pipe is located on top of the radiator, near the driver's side. Wait until your automobile engine is cool enough, before checking for the blockage. Working on your automobile while the engine is hot could result in serious burn injuries.

    • 2

      Drain the cooling system on your automobile. Remove the radiator cap while the engine is cool, and pour the container of radiator flush into it. Replace the cap, and start your automobile engine. Since the flush needs to circulate throughout the car, you must wait about thirty minutes before moving ahead.


    • Move toward the radiator, and open the drain valve to catch the old fluid in the bucket underneath the radiator. Once done, properly dispose of the old liquid fluid. However, don't pour it on the ground or in the sewage. You can either flush it down a toilet, or submit it to a recycling center that recycles antifreeze liquids.

    • 4

      Pour a chemical cleaner into the radiator in order to eliminate any sediments or rust. Follow this up with running water in order to thoroughly clean the radiator.

    • 5

      Check the radiator further by disconnecting the ATF oil cooler lines: the upper and lower radiator hoses. Use a flare-nut wrench to avoid damaging the fittings. Unbolt the radiator support brackets, after you have removed the cooling fan. The condition of all belts and hoses must be examined for cracks, soft spots and bulges. It may be necessary to replace these.

    • 6

      Make sure the mounting brackets and radiator support are in alignment when bolting the radiator back in place. Without good alignment, your radiator will be in danger of overheating and, ultimately, failure. Also, make sure every part taken from the radiator is replaced, in order to avoid any kind of massive damage to the automobile.

I have a 2000 toyota camry with 83,000 miles on it. I waas driving home and started to overheat and can hear a knocking noise when i'm accelerating.....any advice on where to start?

knocking might be detonation in the combustion chambers--this can be caused by overheating. Check your coolant level. If it's low, you may have a leak. If not, maybe your fan is not turning (?). If all this checks OK, we usually advise to replace the thermostat, as it is inexpensive repair that might solve the problem. Any questions, please reply.

Before you begin serious diagnosis, the wise thing to do is to establish that the engine is in fact overheating. Automobile gauges are only indicators at best. Obtain a thermometer and check the engine's actual temperature. DO NOT REMOVE RADIATOR CAP! When the engine is hot, place the thermometer in a dob of grease on the top tank of the radiator, where it's flat and won't melt and run off. The reading should be around 180~213 deg.F.Any hotter and its deffinately too hot. I assume the cooling sytem is not losing water, so the most probable cause of overheating is a partially blocked radiator core. If this turns out to be the problem,. your cooling system will need to be reversed flushed. This is a job for the workshop. You can do it. If you want to, get back here for the procedure.
