Was that a "LOW" or LOAD" knock? Anything from motor mount to a rod knocking. Good Luck

Knocking or banging noise

There is really no way to know what the noise is, you must have it inspected and well you have it in the shop have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, when the CEL is on the system will set a fault code for the problem that turned on the Check Eng. Light.

1997 Blazer, had key in forward position and battery gauge was good and dash lights on. Relays on firewall got moved and lost all power. How do I restore?

I would sugest the problem lies with the ignition switch or barrel if you can't move the key. I would 1st remove the switch from the barrel & turn with screwdriver to see if it operates.

Bang on the catalytic converter being careful not to get burnt and see if it's loose causing a rattle. Until you determind what the problem is don't drive the vehicle. The other possibility is that you may need an engine. If what you're hearing us a connecting rid knock.

Engine knocking right after a tune up on a 2000 hevy blazer LS

I would say look at each of your plugs. Knocking noise usually come from pre-ignition. So your most likely not getting a good spark in one of the cylinders.

You could have:
Fouled a plug with a piece of engine dirt
Changed the gap while placing it in the engine
Broke a plug wire
Also check to make sure the plugs are in the same heat range (ie exact replacements)

1997 LeSabre has engine "knock"

If it knocks at 50 it will knock sitting still if you race it up. Is the oil pressure good? These motors hardly ever have a bearing problem. The only knock problem was the harmonic balacer that comes apart and knocks. The rubber falls apart and it will make a knock sound all the time, more with the ac on. If you have a knock at 50 or highway speed only you may need a outer tie rod end only. Get the front end checked as they will make a knocking sound on the highway. reply

Engine noise

sounds like spark knock to me, try adjusting the timing or running a different octane of fuel, i know the fuel thing is expensive but that is usually the case with spark knock
