SOURCE: engine knock 1999 ford crown vic

Are u using the recommended fuel ? if so try running a couple of cans of fuel injection upper cylinder cleaner through the system with the next few tanks of gas, try LUCAS brand, it is among the best, the next step is to have the engine de-carboned by the dealer, this works very well, you can also remove an octane selection jumper, it retards the timing 2 degrees, that will most times stop the ping.

SOURCE: 99 Saturn SC1 ''Service engine soon'' light is on.

Did you get the code that triggered the SEL? If you know that, it will be easier to diagnose your problem. You can do it without a tool on the old saturns. Just need a paperclip. :

Use a paper clip to jumper Terminal A and B of the ALDL *Assembly Line Diagnostic Link* which is above your left knee.
Terminal A is an interal ground and is the top right terminal in the connector. Terminal B is directly adjacent and to the left of Terminal A.

Turn the ignition to ON.

All codes are 2 digits between 11 and 99. Codes are displayed on the SES light by flashing the light with short and long pauses to distinguish digits of one code from digits of another. The short pause is used between digits of the same code, long pauses are between codes. Also, each code is flashed three times before going to the next code.

For example, the sequence of code 12 will be: flash, pause, flash-flash, long pause, then repeat 2 times. If Code 12 is not displayed, the self-diagnostic pogram i snot functioning properly.

If only Code 12 is displayed, no system malfunctions have been stored.

Any existing system fault codes are displayed in order from low to high, except for Code 11.

On vehicles with an automatic transaxle and on which exist stored transaxle codes, Code 11 will be displayed last, then the SHIFT TO D2 light will begin flashing transaxle codes of flags.

When all engine codes have been displayed, Code 12 will flash again.

SOURCE: 1989 Chevrolet C1500 with 5.7L V-8. Engine dies

fuel pump is working but when accelerating it doesnt pump enough fuel up to the engine then it will fall on its face if it is a electric pump you may have to drop the tank if it is inside and replace it if it is on the engine replace it thats what is exactly wrong with it

Hello,
There is a possibility that the old motor was not burning properly and you have carbon build up on the O2 sensers. A poorly functioning O2 senser will not allow the Fuel/Air mixture to work as you give it gas under load. You could have multiple O2 sensers too.

Toyota solara engine knocking and car cutting off


Meloe77, there's a high possibility you have a mechanical failure inside the engie causing the knocking sound. (Check the oil?)
The reason for shutting off is because the knock sensor can hear it, and the powertrain control module (PCM, herefore) is trying to detune the engine to eliminate the sound, (as if it were caused by bad gasoline.) The fact that there is a mechanical knocking sound, means that the sound cannot be eliminated by detuning of fuel or spark mapping, therefore it starves for fuel and/or spark causing the engine to stop running.
My recommendation: Have the vehicle TOWED to a reputable mechanic and ask him if its possible that I'm right.

Now, this problem only seems to happen intermittently. I have a 95 S-10 and recently when I've started it, it idles high and revs even though I'm in park. Sometimes it will even out when I've...


same thing happened to me, i do know my s 10 durango's problem was with the intake gaskets etc and the carburator, and the timing was off, i got the carb rebuilt and an overhaul put on it, its just timing issues, when you start and it high idles, tap the gas after a min of it being started and it'll slow down a lot and be normal, it high idles after being parked a while to warm up is what my mechanic told me mine was an 84, is yours carburated or fuel injected?? take it to a mechanic and get a diagnosis that would be your best bet, and about two months after mine doing the same the engine blew on me and it was three grand to fix, so i sold it, and it bley black smoke worse than a diesel, and it was gas, and you might get a hard knocking sound soon too, if you drive it really hard, is it a 2.8 L V6?? thats not a very good engine design anyhow, its the same as my s 10 if it is, any it'll probe die soon, happened to my friend the exact time that mine did and in all the same stages, but we drove like dumb teenagers, it was just last year, best of luck

Toyota previa stalled (died suddenly) while being driven it feels like there's a hiccup in the engine no matter how hard i press the accelerator it won't accelerate!


Ika, has it started back? If not, it may be a timing belt/chain broke. If it cranks, it may be a fuel pump, filter, pinched gas lines, or bad fuel injectors. It may be a problem in the ignitions. Spark plugs,coils, wires, distributor, coil pack, dist.cap, If it is not cranking, check ignition fuse. Check battery, wires, and whole charging system. If it is just dying on you and it starts back, it may be a map sensor, idle sensor or throttle sensor possibly. Need a little more info please.

My Toyota Vitz has a problem of engine knocking even when the engine is cold. the knocking reduces if i press hard on the gas, other wise it knocks while shifting and initial pick up as well.


Knocking can be caused by a bad bearing somewhere in the engine. When the engine is accelerated it might go away due to higher oil pressure.

When did you have the oil changed and how many miles does it have?

Is the knocking rapid (5 or 6 times a second) or periodic (1 or 2 times a second)?

Some knocking is due to low octane gasoline if you experience it at highway speed.

Good luck on solving this knocking problem.

Check the timing and compression of the engine. It sounds like you either have a blown head gasket or a the timing jumped.
