Well, not too many things can make a knocking sound from the engine. Unfortunatly, I would say that it sounds like you have a bad push rod. Did you buy the car new or used. It could have been a problem before you bought it(if it was a used car). There are ways to temp. stop the noise so that someone buying the car won't know there is a problem until later. I would like to know more about the situation so that I can thourghly help you find and fix this problem.

2005 Nissan Altima knocking noise when engine starts.


By chance did you check your oil level. That would be ideal before your engine blows out. If that is fine, more in likely it maybe normal. Some GM vehicles do that also due to the cold weather. After sitting for a long period of time the oil will settle in the oil pan til you crank up. The knocking noise may last for 5-10 sec then it stops because the oil is lubricating the pistons again. But if it is constant and oil level is good, get a mechanic to check it out. Hope this helps.

Crown victoria making knocking noise


Listen to the engine, if the noise is down low it is rod if it is up high it is valves. IF it is rod knock it will eventually throw the rod.

My 04 Town & Country has a loud Knock in the motor


Why did the engine get hot? Coolant loss? Was the oil level too low before more was added? If it was low, how many quarts should have been added? I believe you have serious engine problems. Too much oil is as bad as too little. What happens when it is overfilled, is the oil 'foams', causing a lack of lubrication of internal components. Oil in a foamy state will not lubricate properly. I believe what you hear is a crankshaft or rod bearing that is now damaged. If I'm correct, you need to replace the engine. Sorry for the bad news.

97 SL2 dohc loud knocking sound coming from engine. sounds like somebody beating inside of valve cover with a hammer. compression checks ok. oil level is good. no obvious problems with cams or lfters that...


you have a ROD knock,,,,the oil level can be good and compression can be good,but the bearing on the rod to crank is shot and now has too much play and is causing excessive play and noise,soon the rod will come out the block and seize the engine,,if its knocking that loud then its too late to fix it,,your gonna have to replace the engine really soon,,,sorry but its normal of the dohc engine to do this usually between 90 to 130k miles they let loose but the single cam dont have this issue

Loud mechanical knock in engine 2.8 a4 Audi 1996


it's probably a rod knocking and that's never too good. get it checked out with a mechanic soon. Some auto parts sell stuff to stop that so you can go there and ask they usually help you, but it won't solve the problem it will just stop the noise for a little bit.
