I got an infinity 2005 g 35. I'm starting to hear a knocking noise. I don't know if its the engine, It sounds like it's coming from the side somewhere but definitely under the Hood.? Idk

if the knock speeds up with rpm increase then it definitely is the engine. if it is a solid sounding knock that would be bottom end. if it is more of a hollow knock or more like a tick then could be top end...lifters, exhaust leak or check to see if anything is hitting your cooling fan.

An old joke: A woman comes across a man crawling under a street lamp. "I've lost my car keys," he explains. The woman tries to help the man find his keys. After a few minutes of searching, she asks "Where exactly did you drop them?" "Down the street, next to my car." Puzzled, she asks "Then why aren't you looking over there?" "The light is better here."

2000 Estima, 6 cylinder, makes a short whining noise on start up, also when placed into gear both forward and reverse - mainly when cold - makes a slight knocking sound that fades when you pick up speed,...

The whining noise at start up is either the power steering pump (possibly low fluid, or faulty pump bearing), or possibly a belt on the engine. As for the knocking sound, that is hard to diagnose without actually hearing it, but based on the fact that you are hearing a whining sound at start up, which is indicative of a loose belt, I would start at the belt tensioner and make sure that it is applying the correct amount of pressure on the belts. If the belt tensioner is faulty, it can make a knocking sound. If that is not the issue, then it could simply be the lifters. With engine run time/miles on the engine, internal engine components, such as lifters, valves, bearings and any moving part, deteriorate from friction wear and heat.They have a tendency to make a knocking/rattling sound when they are building up pressure. When they build sufficient pressure, or the engine reaches operating temperature, this sound/noise will dissipate and become nonexistent. This can be remedied by changing the oil, and possibly the weight of the oil (5w30, 10w40, 20w50) depending on your driving habits , or conditions (Highway v/s City/Stop&Go, or short trips under 30 miles)

I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

Continued knocking while driving. Seems to knock faster as I accelerate, but does not knock at idle in neutral, starts to knock when reviving at 2200 rpms

Well lift the car up and put it on drive wile you can hear what the knock is. See if is your engine or the transmission. And if ok check your spark plugs make sure you getting fire to them

Why my pontiac making a clicking sound?

is it an overhead cam motor? if not most likely the hydraulic lifters. its pretty common for gm engines (all the 96 and up vortecs do it) if the piston was hitting anything it wouldnt be a clicking noise, and your knock sensor would shut down the engine. however being that it comes from just one side of the motor im almost certain its an exhaust leak at the manifold. those are your options but im certain its an exhaust leak. hope this helps

I have a 2002 Chevy TrailBlazer LTZ model. When I drive over ridges (picture small ripples like in a lake), from the front driver's and passenger's seats, you can hear knocking noises under the front...

What you have here are bad swaybar end links (very common, been there gone through that headache). You have 4 of these, two in the front, and 2 in the back. Problem with the stock end links is they are not greasable. Replace them with a brand like Moog, which are greasable and will last longer. If you are mechanically inclined, replace them yourself, much cheaper to do it yourself of course. Heck, if you're near Sacramento, CA I'll do them for you, for cheap! Let me know if you need help with instructions on how to do it.

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any...

might be the valves have been damaged running without oil
- or the crankshaft / camshaft / main bearings
most probably you have to let the engine be rebuilt by a mechanic
(expect cost of more than US$ 2.000)
or get another (used) engine at a scrapyard 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-0.jpg 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-2.jpg
