Remove and inspect the spark plugs for heavy deposits or glazed-looking interior insulators. Make sure the plugs are the proper type for this engine. Heavy carbon build-up in the cylinder heads will cause pinging. If the ignition system is too advanced, it will also cause problems. Try a different brand of fuel. High engine temperatures can do the same (caused by poor cooling system or lean fuel/air mixture). If the check engine light is on, take the car to Autozone or a similar business that offers a free scan of the computer. This may provide additional clues. Hope some of this helps!

You should take it in or if you know how check the timming on the vehicle if the timming is out it will cause this.There could also be a dead cylinder causing this problem is the check engine light on? Could be caused by a bad plug or wire.

Ok it seems to me like you may have to do some electrical checks, perhaps some voltage checks/drops in order to find out. For the P0118 you could use your scanner provided it can read live data. Look at the coolant temp snsr (cts or ect) and read its value it should read close to intake air temp snsr (IAT) value. The unplug the sensor value should change drastically and go negative. The jump the Two terminals and temperature should go high. If it does you've you've eliminated the circuit and the sensor it faulty. Make sure you have 5v reference as I said before you may have to voltage drop the circuit to make sure you're not loosing any voltage and that the circuit is intact. Good luck! Here are some links with more info and possible causes. http://www.obd-codes.com/p0118 http://www.obd-codes.com/p0507

Try this. Burn off your current take of gas, get it down to a quarter tank or so. Fill up with premium gas. If the noise goes away it is probaly a condition known as ping. Which is the predestination of the air fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. This can be caused by carbon buildup and could be resolved with an upper intake and valve cleaning. If the noise persists it is most likely a mechanical engine noise, an experienced ear will be able to tell you what the noise is.
