I suspect that a replacement engine would be the cheapest way to go as to rebuild an engine is costly

SOURCE: Engine light is blinking and it runs very rough/low power in gear.

Check the coil pack. Same symptoms on mine. It went at 74,000.
You can get the resistance specs from a shop manual. I have been told the plastic engine cover traps heat and makes short life of the coil pack. I removed the top engin cover, cosmetic only after replacing mine. You will probably need spark plugs also they are probably fowled by now. If you have not changed spark plug wires in awhile in would not hurt.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu automatic when it is in first and second gear it makes a knocking sound but when it shifts to third gear it stops I don't think it's a rod knocking because it isn't consent


More information is needed to help with this.

1. Is the knocking coming from the engine, the transmission or elsewhere?

2. If you believe it is from the engine, start the motor and put the auto in neutral and gradually depress the accelerator pedal to gently increase the engine speed for 2 minutes. If you can replicate the knocking noise then obviously it is engine.

3. If the knocking is from the engine check the engine oil level which you should be doing frequently anyhow to ensure you top it up and do not run the oil level low and destroy the motor. (Failure to have the engine oil changed at the required intervals can also result in excessive wear and damage to engine components.) If you do this check and find the oil level is very low then advise here when you repost your query with more information about the source of the knocking sound.

4. Also indicate in your post what grade (octane rating) of fuel you are running the engine on.

Replace rods in 2001 prism


Not good omen. Likely a bearing seized or broke on your crank shaft. knocking is usually an indication of crank shaft problems - it is possible that you have top end damage as well. Prognosis is poor - rebuild / replacement is likely required. Don't plan any long trips - if you drain the oil you may find metal shavings etc... Depending on how bad the damage is you may be able to keep driving it but it does sound bad if you find it hard to keep running - if you do want to limp around for a bit drain the oil and change the filter and keep the oil up to it.

Oil pump goes bad what are the symptoms? I was driving and heard a loud noise now my truck is running rough and sluggish and there is no oil pressure at the gauge. There's a loud knocking under the...


It sounds like you have slipped a bearing and you'll need a new engine. You get most of your oil pressure from your connecting rod bearing and crank shaft bearing, you still have some oil pressure. No oil pressure will cause your engines ECM to shut the engine down, but from what you have described. The engine is to far gone for repairs and a engine swap would be the more economical thing to do.
Thank you for using fixya and sorry for the bad news.
