Question about 1991 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Camry LE that seems to have a top end knock. One guy thought that we ran the car with out oil, and something ?dried out? and got warn. We never ran the engine with out oil. So my question is this: What are the types of things that would cause a knocking under acceleration, but not while the engine is idling?

The 4 cylinders make a noise when the t-belt slaps ithe plastic housing. The waterpump can also do this. A high exhaust leak can sound like this too. Piston slap is in there too.

Why would I have a hole in my oil pan and water/oil mixed coming out on a 98chevy suburban vortex 5.7


Your hole in the oil pan is from some damage caused when the vehicle hit something over rough terrain, I am assuming since it is a 4x4. The mixture of water and oil is because you have some leak whether it is a blown gasket or maybe some hole internally in the engine. Do you notice a brownish foam at the end of the oil dipstick if you check the oil, that is usually a sign that water is seeping into the oil parts of the engine.

Replace rods in 2001 prism


Not good omen. Likely a bearing seized or broke on your crank shaft. knocking is usually an indication of crank shaft problems - it is possible that you have top end damage as well. Prognosis is poor - rebuild / replacement is likely required. Don't plan any long trips - if you drain the oil you may find metal shavings etc... Depending on how bad the damage is you may be able to keep driving it but it does sound bad if you find it hard to keep running - if you do want to limp around for a bit drain the oil and change the filter and keep the oil up to it.

Lost of power, knocking sound


HAVE YOU CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL? OR OVERHEATED THE ENGINE, CHECK THE ENIGINES OIL LEVEL, YOU MUST OF LOST OIL, RAN LOW ON OIL OR YOUR OIL PUMP GAVE OUT. IF THERES KNOCKING OIL NOISE, THATS NOT GOOD AT ALL. ASLO WHERES THE KNOCKING FROM TOP OT THE BOTTOM. THE TOP IS LESS TUMPING THE BOTTOM IS HARDER TUMPING AND SOUNDS HARDER WHEN ACCELARATED. LET ME KNOW. CHECK THE OILS CONDIOTION FOR GLIDERIN THE SUN YOU SEE THE RESEDUE METAL GLIDERING. IF SO THE MOTOR IS MOST LIKELY SHOT.

Loud engine knock sounds like theconnecting rods in a 3.5L v-6 2002 trooper


If the engine knock is coming from deep inside the engine, the I agree, the rod is knocking.
If the sound is coming from closer to the top, it could be a valve lifter or push rod you are hearing. This isn't as bad, they last longer and synthetic oil or oil treatment helps.
If this doesn't happen all the time, if it's occasional or you hear a pinging noise, you could just have a bad knock sensor.

Check engine light does not go off


The check engine light is telling you the computer is detecting something wrong. You will need to connect a device which will read the code and tell you what the problem is. Your owner's manual will tell you the capacities of the systems of your particular vechicle, as well as the type of engine oil grade you should use.
