4d56 deisel engine, after opening the engine, good idle but when i accelerate knoking sound appear

Not sure what you mean by opening the engine.

The combustion process of a diesel is not the smooth burn and increase in pressure of a petrol engine but is virtually an explosion causing a sudden rise in cylinder pressure. This is the source of the typical diesel knock and is more pronounced in some engines and some injection systems, especially when accelerating. It can be scary for those unfamiliar.
Electronic control tends to soften the noise.

Knocking might be the result of a mechanical problem (piston, connecting rod bearings, etc.) but if these things have been eliminated other causes of excess knocking can be excessive injection timing advance, dribbling injectors, bad spray patterns...

Are the lifters hydrolicts, or do thay need ajustment its a v6 2, 5

Hi, I really would just take the vehicle to a garage, it is not very old and they could sort the problem out fairly quickly. I really would not expect tappetty/camshaft noises from a 4 yrar old car, there might be something more serious amiss than clacking valve.


I have added a link to a site that might possibly be useful, see below

2002 2.7 liter chrysler has a knock in the engine. sounds like it is coming from the valves

if the car has alot of miles on it , a little bit of top engine noise is nothing to worry about. if the car does'nt have alot of miles on it or the noise is real loud then you may have a lose valve or need rocker arm ajustment.

Knoking comes from possible valve lifter sticking or could it be timing ?

valves are knocking due to off timing.change the belt before you get bent valves and a seized engine.

1997 pontiac grand am knoking topside, ajusted valves, replaced fuil filter, fuuil regulater, intake gasket, cleaned injecters,what eilths could it be?

If im correct i beleive those engines have hydraulic lifters in them. Thats probably whats making the noise. it's useless to replace them. It's not gonna affect your engines performance. just let it knock
