Knocking noise at idle and accelearation

I just purchased a 1999 Subaru Forester and I can hear a knocking noise coming from the engine when I first start the car. I can also hear it when I accelarate, but I don't seem to hear it at higher RPM's, I'm not sure if the noise goes away or if it's not audible. Any tips/ideas/suggestions?? Thanks in advance for any help.

Did you buy it privately or a dealer w/ a warrantee? If you have a warantee, use it.If not start by changing the oil& see if that gives you any results.use the proper oil for Subaru,not a Quick Lube.

Knocking noise near front of engine


On a very cold start (eg winter) older Subs often make knocking noise from the LHS of the engine. This is actually quite normal and is a "feature" of the oil paths in the engine. It goes away once the engine is warm.

Might also be the cam belt hydraulic sensor working loose. The tensioner pivot bolt can be done too light or fitted clumsily, and it strips the thread. If it gets too loose, the belt can jump teeth and bend valves.

Ok. Last night my car started making a knocking noise. Its not loud and only happens when im in idle. Also it seems to come from the bottom of the engine. Help?


if it gets louder and faster as the engine speed increases then a piston is knocking...if it is just at idle like you said then it could be a bad oil pump if oil light is on at idle or it could be the connecting rod knocking on the crankshaft because it is loose.

2005 Forester X Engine Knock...big end bearing??? That much???


The lower end of your motor that has the knocking noise will sound like a deep penatrating thud. That will be the rear bearing for the crack shaft. You can find a cheaper place to have it repaired. $3,500 sounds more right to repair at most places

Where is the knock sensor located on a 2001 subaru forester engine 4 cyl. Replaced wires and plugs ...runs great but sensor does not reset and comes right back on after code is erased. are they a one shot...


When facing the engine it is in the rear right hand side.

The knock sensor is a piezo electric crystal, when they go bad the must be replaced.

Looks similar to these
