Sounds like head gasket issues. A compression test would help to narrow down. Also if you see oil in your radiator water or water in your oil. Could also be burnt out valve. I am thinking initially top end motor issue.

My car is a 2006 Suzuki forenza manual with 67k miles on it. It just had an oil change a few months ago with a new filter as well. I didn't drive the car for a few days while the temperature was...


Suzuki should have stayed with just motorcycles. Anyway, You just had the oil changed. Check and see if they changed the filter also. They may have forgot or were just to lazy. Just a chance the oil filter is bad, I would replace it again(is the oil clean on the dipstick?). Add a higher viscosity oil. At 67,000 miles, you would have to drive dirt roads all the time, with no air filter to get sludge to clog the head ports. Which is slow drain of oil to the pan. The oil pump? well it could be, most likely not. I would say the oil sending unit is bad, but the knocking noise kind of throws that off. Knocking is bad, if it happens again, pull off and shut the engine down. One other thing to watch is the temperature gauge. getting really hot will cause knocking. Check coolant level and the thermostat.

I have vitz 2006, 1300cc, when i starts the car and start driving its response are fantastic mean pick up is excellent and no knocking, but as the engine became hot, the pick became DULL, and engine s


The reasons are follows:
- Contaminated fuel.
- Knock sensor poor performance.
- Check exhaust system. If clogged, remove or replace the honey comb porcelain.
- Check ignition timing with scan tool at idle speed. (5 - 8 degrees BTDC).
- Check engine oil level. If the oil level is low, it may be one of the reasons for knocking, because oil may be burning during the combustion.
- Check fuel pump pressure. ( 41 - 49 psi).
- Remove negative battery terminal for 5 Sec or more. Reconnect the terminal. Close all doors, remove all electrical loads like room light, parking lights, blower motor etc. Start the engine and hold the throttle at 3000 rpm till the radiator fan becomes on to complete the idle speed relearn process. Release accelerator pedal after the radiator fan becomes on, and let it idle for 7 min more.
- Switch off the engine for 3 sec and you can then start and drive the car comfortably.
Hope that works.

Car ran fine in the morning parked car and about 4 hours later i went to start and it started but there was a terible knocking and was running ruff, i tried to drive and about two blocks it stop and hasn't...


Does the engine still crank over at normal starting speed? If not, put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt and check that engine still turns freely. If the engine is seized, you know what that means-the terrible knocking was a main or rod bearing being bad, and seized up on the crankshaft. You would need a new engine.

If the crankshaft still turns free, be very prudent about putting money into it until you have determined the cause of the knocking. That doesn't sound good, could still be a bad crankshaft bearing.

MY OIL LIGHT ON IF I DRIVE IT COULD IT HURT MY MOTOR


STOP DRIVING IMMEDIATELY OR AS SOON AS YOU SAFELY CAN PULL OVER. YOU WILL DESTROY THE ENGINE WITHIN MILES. CHECK THE ENGINE OIL DIPSTICK WITH ENGINE OFF. IF THERE'S OIL IN IT. HAVE IT TOWED. IF THERE IS NO OIL ON DIP STICK ADD OIL TO FULL LINE AND START ENGINE. LOOK FOR LIGHT TO GO OFF, HOPEFULLY. LISTEN FOR KNOCKING AND LOOK FOR BLUE, WHITE OR GREY SMOKE FROM EXHAUST. LOOK FOR WET AREAS WHERE OIL MAYBE LEAKING OUT UNDER CAR OR OIL STAINS WHERE CAR IS USUALLY PARKED. HAVE A SHOP CHECK FOR ENGINE DAMAGE.

I had oil change in my saturn 2001 sl after the oil and security and airbag lights started to turn on after 2 days car started making a knocking sound while driving. and it died on me when im at a stop...


best advice here is to ask a local mechanic to have a look as engine shouldnt have started knocking with teh new oil in unless someone has put tranny fluid into teh engine or something stupid ,the lights for the airbag shouldnt be connected but the oil light ?? Do not drive car untill a mechanic has come around and checked it out for you though as this oil light coming on and knocking noise is serious

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.

What is the possible damage to a 2000 dodge durango after driving it for about 2 miles after getting a gauge light due to a busted coolant pressure cap


Did the engine boil over before you came to a stop? and did you let it cool on its own before putting cool water into it? If It didn't run dry and ou didn't hit or fill it with cold water, I may not have damaged anything. If yit did and you did, then a head gasket could result if not a cracked head.Sorry. hHope for the best.

1979 cad fleetwood brougham knocking sound from,engine


Sometimes collapsed lifters or loose rocker arms can cause knocking sounds in an engine. However, the fact that there was a possible loss of oil pressure and that the knocking gets louder as the rpm's increase, would indicate that there is damage to a connecting rod bearing and possibly the crankshaft. If the latter is the case you are looking at a fairly substantial repair bill.

Not much. 1. Keep the tires inflated properly; that makes a big diff. 2. Don't carry anything you don't need...keep it light. 3. Use the lowest octane fuel that will work without the engine making noise(knocking or pinging). 4. Never use a roof rack! (Skis or bike, luggage etc) 5. Do your maintenance on time/keep the thing tuned. 6. Don't jackrabbit start. (making the tires go real fast from a stop) Get quickly to the speed you want and stay there. Changing speed uses more fuel. 7. Slow down. After about 55 MPH most vehicles start using relatively much more fuel. 8. Use the air conditioner and keep the windows closed. Newer car air conditioners are very efficient but old cars weren't so some old timers will tell you to not use the air but that's only for older models. 9. Don't leave the engine running when you're not moving. 10. Don't warm-up the engine in the morning to clear the ice. Use a scraper, drive slowly until the engine warms.(but make sure you can see)
