Question about 1987 Toyota Cressida

1 Answer

Knocking in the motor.

My Cressida makes a knocking noise but only on low rpms. When i rev the engine even the slightest bit it goes away. I'm only 16 so I don't know that much about cars so i was wondering if anyone has any idea what might be wrong. Thank You

Sounds like the valves need adjusting. If that doesn't cure the problem, You may have lifters that are worn or loosing their prime.

Loud knocking coming from lower timing cover area 1995 toyota camry 2.2


I do think that loose key and keyway could cause the knock. It would also explain the loss of power, due to the engine timing not being spot on.
A knocking big end or main bearing would not improve at higher revs, it would get worse.

Act soon before the keyway in the crankshaft itself is too badly damaged, by removing the crankshaft pulley, lower timing belt cover, and belt guide. You can then get a precise idea of what exactly is worn. This may assist

You may actually have to find an oversize key, for a neat fit in the crankshaft. It may be necessary to file or grind it to fit. Engineering supply houses stock them, eg

My 96 chrysler lhs has a knocking/rattleing sound coming from the bottom engine and as you push down on the gas the faster you drive the louder it rattles


if the noise is coming from the bottom end of the motor then you have either bad connecting rod bearings or bad crank bearings.if when you snap the throttle you hear a double knock then its connecting rod bearing if not then its crank bearing.a collapsed piston can sound low in the engine and its usually a dull knock noise.if you have the engine running and the noise is there and you pull off one plug wire at a time(and reconnect it after checking) and the noise goes away or mostly goes away with the wire unhooked then the cylinder that the noise changed is the cylinder that has a bad piston.

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy, and it started making "knocking sounds". Ck the oil, it was OK


If the sound does not go away then the engine has internal problems. Some times if someone over revs the engine it will cause knocks.If the oil is not changed regularly and the engine gets hot due to low water,racing engine then engines dont last long.
If its a deep solid knock its a crank shaft bearing.
If its a lighter knock then some times if you remove the right plug wire and the knock goes away (of course the engine will run rough due to lost cylinder) its that pistons wrist pin bearing.
At any rate your engine will need rebuilt or replaced.Or get a different car.

The engine knocks at higher rpm, only at high rpms


First no matter what check the oil level and then if it's a high rev tapping you need to allow the oil to flow through the engine block to try to coat and settle your valves.

But if it's really " knocking " sounds like your lifters and rocker arms are allowing your piston rods to clatter and that needs to be looked into fast.
