    Not enough info provided to even hazard a guess, have the system tested and see what trouble codes are present

I had this happen to my Neon. My fuel injectors were not working right and dumping fuel into the oil. The cylinders were misfiring, my engine seized and I had to replace it. Get it check ASAP

Chances are you have a faulty magneto.

This sounds as if you have cylinder that are misfiring. This would cause the no power problem you have, and the knocking sound.

you developed a knock in the engine, sounds confusing but your engine computer can't separate bad bearing from pre-ignition, engine knock, to cure this your computer retards the spark, to the max to stop the knock, confuses the computer to the max

Sparkling sound in the engine when accelerating on motion


That sounds like pre-ignition or "knocking".

Is your check engine light blinking?

Try a tank of higher octane fuel like unleaded premium, and if the sound goes away, I'd then have the trouble codes scanned looking for a faulty knock sensor.

I have got a mercury grand marquis 2003 LS ultimate and having a knocking noise for few seconds when accelerating sometimes specially when the engine is hot and that will reduce the power. any ideas?


When you say the engine is hot are you talking about the normal operating temperature? Has the Check Engine or Service Engine light come? If so, was the On Board Diagnostics system checked for a codes? Usually a knocking sound during acceleration indicates a improper fuel mixture or low octane.

Check engine light on but no codes


The check engine light will come on when the ECM detects knock, it will only stay on if excessive knock is detected. I would replace the fuel filter and check your fuel pressure.
Could also be a bad knock sensor as the ECM will also advance the timing to make the engine knock. If on knock is detected when the ECM is doing this it will light the check engine light.

Make sure you have enough oil in the engine (though it's likely too late) If you have knocking and oil light on, sorry to say, you likely have lost a rod or crank main bearing (engine needs to come out of car and completely apart (very expensive) Options are a re-manufactured or scrapyard replacement.
