This will be detonation and is the result of incorrect air /fuel ratio and ignition timing All these are controlled by the ECM unit so run fault codes and look for MAP/MAF/VAF sensors and o2 sensors

My car engine makes loud sound when i drive

This could be a number of things and a car is difficult to diagnose from sounds as th nature of it means that the sound does not always come from where it sounds like it is. Try - wheel bearings (usually a high pitched squeal) - Big or little end bearings if the engine has been run low on oil. It is an auto I assume so could be gear box. It could be something really simple like engine mounts and the vibrations of the engine are passing to the metal body as the rubber has come away.

W+Could you possibly video it and post?

I do my own auto care and have had conflicting information on these specs, recently purchased a olds 98 with a 455engine and single point distributor, point gap was at 19 the timing was at 10 and the plug...

I would start by doing a compression test. If you have a low cylinder than no adjustments will improve it. Also the plug gap and the timing will not cause misfire. The point gap would make a difference, but it sounds like you have other issues, so start with a compression test. Hope this helps. Good luck :O)

Tapping sound in the engine started 2 days ago. The sound comes and goes at startup (not always present at startup), and disappears on deacceleration. Engine oil is OK. Temp doesn't register above normal. ...

Usually caused by a failed hydraulic lifter. You can verify by removing the valve cover and finding a valve with excess clearance. The lifter/adjuster should be replaced ASAP to avoid damage to the cam lobe. If you would like instructions on replacing the part, please get back to me.

I have a 98 ford expedition thats running lean on the left bank and its pinning

Is "pinning" actually PINGING?
Anyway, sound like a problem with the crossover pipe on the fuel rail. Not something that you should mess with. It is under great pressure. Take it to a decent mechanic... and stay clear of the dealership!!

Strange noise coming from under cam belt cover ...

Either the water pump pulley is failing or cam tensioner, its quite common on peugeots engines it can be fixed but its a pain to do if your not mechanically minded. the engine mounts have to come off. It shouldnt be expensive to put i the garage.

dont drive it though it may snap and wreck the engine.

Engine pinning when accelerating only on cold Suzuki Baleno

Carbon build up on pistons raises engine compression.This is normal.Go up one grade on gas and/or put some fuel additive.If this doesnt solve it,have timing belt/chain inspected may need replaced

When starting car turning ignition only hear a spinning sound but car didnt start

Probably the starter itself, or the starter solenoid on the side of the starter. Usually only available as one unit anyway for most vehicles. Make sure the starter motor connections are all tight before replacing it, wiring and retaining bolts, hopefully that's all it is. The other possibility is that the flywheel ring-gear could be damaged and not allowing the starter pinion gear to engage, in which case that would need to be replaced also, which involves removing the gearbox, so hope thats not the problem!

Hope this helps,
