Why my 99 nissan quest pinging a lot during hot weather


Switch to premium to see if that is a temp fix. Then run a full strength fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank.

What happens when you drive without a gas cap


ok on todays automobiles the gas cap does more than just seal the gas tank. Now they run a return line to the tank. this does 2 things. it returns un used fuel and vapors back to the tank , and it pressurizes the tank to help improve the fuel pump.

Now as it is possible running without the gas cap may cause problems I am not 100 % positive that is your only problem.

It sound like the knock sensor is detecting the knock you mentioned and is trying to retard the timing to fix it . In doing so it has retarded it to far causing the engine to loose power and eventually stall. I would first replace the gas cap. then run a good gas additive to a full tank of gas to clean out any water and dirt that may have gotten into the tank while the cap was off. now the issue of the knock as you described. is it a knock or a ping? A knocking sound is loud metallic hammering noise. a ping is a ting not very loud. if it is a loud metallic sound I would have a reputable mechanic check it soon, as it could be a serious issue. Ping can be caused by bad or weak gas or cheap low octane gas. I would run a mid grade gas in it and see if it fixed the issue.

1988 Toyota Camry LE clicking noise during acceleration


start with premium gas or injector cleaner, could be a low octane ping. this may be hard to diagnose with out hearing the noise so the other thing i would have you do is remove the belts and run the engine. sometimes when a bearing in an alternator, idler pulley, a/c compressor or belt tensioner goes bad they can make a clicking noise. try to listen if the noise is coming from the belt area, the transmission area or some other spot. spin all the pulleys with the engine off and wiggle them to see if any are bad

My 1992 300zx is making a pinging sound when pressing on gas peddal


Try this. Burn off your current take of gas, get it down to a quarter tank or so. Fill up with premium gas. If the noise goes away it is probaly a condition known as ping. Which is the predestination of the air fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. This can be caused by carbon buildup and could be resolved with an upper intake and valve cleaning. If the noise persists it is most likely a mechanical engine noise, an experienced ear will be able to tell you what the noise is.

I get a ping when i accelareat in my 94 gmc 350 vandura


Low octain fuel or the rings on your 20 year old engine may be wearing and you age getting oil in the combustion chamber, effectively lowering the octain.

Have your mechanic do a compression test on your engine and wee what he or she thinks.

Dodge Ram 2500 engine ping


Your ignition timing may have advanced too far. Or it is now where it should be and is making more cylinder pressure during combustion causing the gasoline to ignite to early causing detonation or ping.

Make sure the ignition timing is correct. If it is try better fuel meaning the octane rating.

If you can go up to the next octane level. For example if you are using 87 go to 89 and see if it goes away. 3 of my wife's last cars a 1986 Honda Prelude, 2000 Neon, and a 2003 Neon had some ping under medium to hard acceleration. She switched to 89 octane and the ping went away completely in each vehicle. Each of the vehicle had a good deal of miles on them.

The 2003 Neon has 75000 miles on it now and runs great on 89 octane. About a year ago I tried 87 Octane in her car and the ping came right back.
