Well it sounds like either the battery is low and needs to be charged or replaced or that the fly wheel is bad.

What would a knocking machine gun sound be under hood. I just started it and somewhere under the hood is a LOUD Knocking like a Machine Gun sound.


Is it metalling sound ? if that's the case then don't drive it .. you might be having issues with connecting rod or the bearings in the both cases engine will seize. Consult a auto technician, but you wont have engine light on due to this.

If it is knocking due to misfire (which is mostly the case as the engine light is also on) .... than find which cylinder have the issue then clean or replace the spark plug. If you can get a scanner to read the car computer it will solve the issue in a blink. Otherwise start the engine ... open the hood .pull out spark plug connector one by one and notice the change in sound... the one that is bad will have no effect on the sound.

2001 crown vic leaks oil and makes knocking sound when i accelerate, what can this be and please dont say rod knock


Can be several things. I want to say spark knock. Don't remember if your engine came with a Knock sensor.

Also stretched timing chain or weak timing chain tensioner. Another term to look at is "valve rattle". This would give you closer to a machine gun sound than other things.

This is starter chatter and it is caused by a defective battery or one that has been drained form something being left on.

Machine gun fire under the hood; starter problem or solenoid?


whenever I am under this machine gun fire it has always been due to a slightly loose battery connection.A clout on the negative terminal with a large piece of wood should do the trick. Your headlights etc are probably working ok but the huge amount of power needed to turn the engine finds loose or dirty connections

My van wont start when we turn it to start it, it just makes a clicking sound


If its a fast clikcing noise like a machine gun, its a bad connection or a weak battery. If its just one click then nothing it can be the starter or the battery. Try to give it a jump and see if it starts. Get back to me!

When I turn on my heat, defroster, or air, the car makes a horrible sound, like a machine gun. Could it be the fan? (Blower motor)


Well, the fan is where I would start, sounds like a foreign object, like a stick, got in the area.

2006 Dodge Caravan Engine Light Blinks 10 Times & wont start


It sounds like your starter needs cleaned or replaced. The poping noise could be the actuator not engaging right. As for the engine light, it could be just a coincidence.
