Loud knocking is usually a "bad sign". If water got into the engine, and you tried to start it, you could have bent or broken rods. That's a major engine repair.

Loud Knocking noise coming the top of the engine


possible but I would suggest a compression test to check for loose valve seat insert. They can come loose and follow the valve up and down and cause loud knocking noises and faulty engine operation.

What happens when you drive without a gas cap


ok on todays automobiles the gas cap does more than just seal the gas tank. Now they run a return line to the tank. this does 2 things. it returns un used fuel and vapors back to the tank , and it pressurizes the tank to help improve the fuel pump.

Now as it is possible running without the gas cap may cause problems I am not 100 % positive that is your only problem.

It sound like the knock sensor is detecting the knock you mentioned and is trying to retard the timing to fix it . In doing so it has retarded it to far causing the engine to loose power and eventually stall. I would first replace the gas cap. then run a good gas additive to a full tank of gas to clean out any water and dirt that may have gotten into the tank while the cap was off. now the issue of the knock as you described. is it a knock or a ping? A knocking sound is loud metallic hammering noise. a ping is a ting not very loud. if it is a loud metallic sound I would have a reputable mechanic check it soon, as it could be a serious issue. Ping can be caused by bad or weak gas or cheap low octane gas. I would run a mid grade gas in it and see if it fixed the issue.

Real loud knocking noise when i turn or put it in reverse and hard to get it to go past 30 mph


Go with a completely damaged & blocked exhaust converter

Air In --Air Out Yours doesn't go out & the trans gets confused
& can't use the shift strategy it was born with

That is the 30 mph or a gas filter really clogged,not real likely

What is with the noises?

Turning & just sitting still?

What was the trans shop diagnoses,was it test driven
& did you go alone,have to do that

Your car --so your part of the solution,be proactive

Mazda 626 2002 smells like burning rubber


This is not good. Sounds like the heater fan bearing and/or resistor is burning out. Not familiar with your heater fan location, but most will be removeable from engine compartment.

Just remove it and spin it by hand or hook auxillary power to it to test. Some autoparts stores can test it for you. Stuff a rag in the opening to block fumes if this must be driven for parts run.

My 2003 L200 saturn is knocking really loud and it died on me at a stoplight.I just found out it was 4 qts low on oil and the light never came.It also smells like gas and it hesitates to start


You might have destroyed the engine. Id have someone look at it to determine if it's salvagable. A compression test may help, but if your bearings are worn out, your oil pressure will be low.

Start sometimes and falls dead and check engine lights reads knock senser, closed coolant curcit, and something with coolant senser. The car took awhile to start yesterday and had a loud gas smell and...


I would try and replace the knock sensor. If the sensor reads a knock or any movement it shouldn't be doing the car will shut off right then and there and then you have to wait a while for it to start again.
