When a check engine light flashes you are dealing with a misfire.and when you said you accerated it it began to knock, sounds like you overheated the vehicle,you need to check the cooling system,let the car cool off before you open the radiator cap.

My check engine light is on. Advance Auto Parts says it is the PO 325 Knock Sensor Malfunction Bnk 1 or Single Sensor. My Subaru is a 1996 Impreza. I also have a fast blinking left turn signal that...


  1. Knock sensor. Check all the wiring connections on the engine heads. Your sensor probably is failed (but see Overheating #3 below) .
  2. fast blinking left turn signal. The front bulb has failed, so replace it.
  3. oil temperature light. This may be an indirect result of #1, as the engine is not running properly and this can cause overheating (but see Overheating #3 below)
Other causes of overheating ...
  1. low oil level
  2. low coolant level. If you are losing coolant, the cause has to be located. The correct fill method is to top up the radiator, then repeatedly squeeze the top rad hose, to "burp" all the air out of the cooling system. You will hear the coolant squishing in the top of the engine. Keep burping until the coolant squishing noise stops.
  3. head gasket(s) may be failing, a not uncommon problem for your engine model. Check for oil in the coolant.

At red light engine seems like it wants to cut off.


try changing your pcv valve. if its dirty it may be causing the shuttering. as for the check engine light going on and off, you may have a bad gas cap. if the cap is faulty it will cause the engine light to come on at times because of a poor air to fuel ratio.

Ford Escape engine light on/blinking, faint knocking noise


If your check engine light came on when the problem occurred, then you need to have the diagnostic codes read. I am cheap, so I would suggest going to an Advance or Auto Zone, they will read the codes and interpret them for you in hopes of selling you the part that will fix it. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!

If you have a "Autozone" in your area, go there and have them run a check on your alternator. It is free to do, and they will run engine error codes for you free of charge.

2003 Mitsubishi Montero (full-size) check engine light is on, the engine sounds like it knocks as I accellerate and the shift diff. lights blink after driving 25 or 30 miles.


The engine is probably making a knocking sound because the oil needs to be changed or replaced. The check engine light is indicating that you will need regular dealership servicing soon, however you can still drive the vehicle but depending on mileage it will determine what services are required.

Oil light goes on and off and engine has a knocking sound.


This sounds like severe engine damage, do to loss of internal lubrication (no oil). That's the bad thing about 'idiot' warning lights, they come on when u have a severe problem, and the damage is done. You are going to probably have to purchase a used engine from an auto salvage yard, or purchase a re -manufactured engine. Sorry for the bad news, this is about as bad as it gets.
