Hello Dixie Home,

Generally recognized as a ROD KNOCK...
typically meaning a piston rod is coming loose
from the crank.

Cheap now... ponderously EXPENSIVE later.

If left to knock... will destroy the CRANK, ROD &
LIKELY THE BLOCK when it does come apart.

There are clever things called "PLASTI-GUAGE"
which a reasonably competent "mechanic" could
assess bearing clearances... crank wear & remedial
work...

Possibly adding significant longevity to your
ENGINE'S lifecycle...

Certainly saving it from being a total loss
(result from ignoring the KNOCK).

Check gages light came on driving a 2002 dodge durango now engines knocking


with engine running check the oil pressure gauge. if it is not reading you will have to check the pressure with an external gauge. the sensor on a v8 is locaterd rear of the engine next to the distributor. No oil pressure will starve the engine of lubrication and cause damage resulting in the knocking .

Check vacuum lines in area of master cylinder as well as fluid level. As far as valves rattling, are referring to engine knock upon acceleration? Have knock sensor checked and/or replaced.
