Why does malfunction light come on & car misfires/pinks randomly?

A misfire condition will trigger the malfunction light to come on. Other engine malfunctions will do it too. Have a diagnostic meter connected to find out how many codes are generated so you will know what other problems may be happening.

Engine Knocking

Knocking can be caused by

1) pre-detonation on hills due to carbon build up in the engine or too low of an octane gas used.
2) worn or spun out bearings in the camshaft or crankshaft that has connector rods for the pistons attached.
3) bad bearings in a belt driven accessory.

I hink you have to rotate the tensioner to get the belt on. I think it takes a 1/2 ratchet in the opening in the tensioner.

Knocking on petrol

its pinking which means the timing is too far advanced ,try 98 octane petrol .what year is vehicle as older engines were designed to run on higher octane a MK2 jag or austin westminster need 101 octane.whats happening is the petrol has a lower anti knock additive than higher octane ,although the petrol is the same flame rate of burn its the amount of anti knock additive which gives it its octane value.just check timing and if a distributor is fitted ****** it a bit i would suggest 8 btdc but if still pinks on low grade then 6btdc
