Does the engine still crank over at normal starting speed? If not, put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt and check that engine still turns freely. If the engine is seized, you know what that means-the terrible knocking was a main or rod bearing being bad, and seized up on the crankshaft. You would need a new engine.

If the crankshaft still turns free, be very prudent about putting money into it until you have determined the cause of the knocking. That doesn't sound good, could still be a bad crankshaft bearing.

SOURCE: took off this morning and the escape started

you are right, its probably the fuel filter. wow 113120 miles without changing the fuel filter. also, change the air filter and have your intake manifold cleaned. this will greatly improve acceleration and fuel economy. best wishes - hotratchet

Wont start


It was either a junk battery to start with or you have a bad connection in one of the cables.

Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

1997 mpv mini van runs great. While traveling i drove from SC to Atl GA....parked and went into motel for evening...the next morning i had very difficult time getting it re started....Like it was not...


I think you should check your battery and alternator.If they both check good you may have a battery draw,something draining the battery over night.Check your doors make sure they are closing like they should.

1992 GMC Sonoma - 4.3l cannot start after stall and knocking.


Sounds like an engine sensor, EGR valve or O2 sensor has failed. First thing to do is to look at the engine trouble codes to pin down the failure. You can usually borrow an OBD1 code checker from your local parts store.
