Engines will shake and run on for a short time if there is a carbon build up on the cylinder head . If the noise is not in the engine the mounts could be worn or broken or the exhaust pipe be touching the body. also check or clean the ERG valve .

Cant tell the nature of the knock noise you hear.
But there's an aluminum heat shield on the top of the catalytic converter that protects the underside of your car from the intense heat of the converter (sometimes they glow red from heat).
Those shields can break lose and rattle mercilessly.

But if you read this and say to yourself, "Its not that kind of a knocking noise", then you're probably right.

I agree, it sounds like an engine knock. However, my Dad used to have a car that shook when it was stopping, and that was caused by bad gasoline.

Sounds like engine knock. Could be crankshaft or piston arm sleeves

SOURCE: 1996 dodge stratus stalls upon stopping and imediate starting.

If this happens when you keep your foot off the brake and never come to a complete stop the lock-up clutch in the trans is not releasing. As soon as you come to a full stop the car stalls, right? Idling in neutral or moving the car is fine? Could also be the IAC (Idle Air Control) motor. It's on the throttle body. Clean it and adjust along with the idle speed.

the exhaust leak shouldnt keep it from running. if it dies when u unhook the jumper cables thats probly caused by a bad alternator or battery. if it is a 2.7 engine, the internal parts of the engine often fail and the knock u hear is a connecting rod. this is usually accompanied by very low oil pressure, is the oil warning light on when its running? if so you may need a new engine. a cracked or loose flywheel can also cause a knock. repair cost is hard to say until the problem is found.

Loud Knocking noise coming the top of the engine


possible but I would suggest a compression test to check for loose valve seat insert. They can come loose and follow the valve up and down and cause loud knocking noises and faulty engine operation.

The engine is making a really loud knocking noise and the oil light is on. it also smells like something is burning or running hot


Doesn't sound good. Check oil level. Also check for metal in the oil once you pull the dipstick. A loud knocking noise is a sign of a blown engine may be you spun a rod in which case you would need engine replacement or rebuild

Engine and front end vibrates on right turns on 2003 stratus


that is likely one of the constant velocity joints or the rubber boot on it. quick test is to turn slowly to the right in an empty parking lot and listen for a clicking sound. repeat in a slow left hand turn.
