It can also be a bad injector.

Spark knock is an indication of over advanced injection timing. It can result in piston damage. Check the ODBII scan for a coolant temp. sensor problem. It may be staying in open loop (ECU Cold Start mode). Presence of 180 degree coolant signal to ECU will trigger closed loop mode. (normal run mode, Lean fuel map).

I have a mitsubishi delicia 2.8 diesel that has a knock on start up but goes away after a bit (about 30 seconds) sounds ok when been running,worse when starting up from cold.thanks

There are many things that can cause an engine to "knock" on startup. For diesel engines, an injector that is leaking and dripping fuel into the cylinder after engine shut down, can definately cause this. However, injector balance tests, as well as other tests should be performed to identify the exact cause of your problem. If it is an injector, the cylinder balance test will tell you which one.

My girlfriend filled my tank with diesel and now the car will not start or run. Obviously. What would be the easiest way to fix this problem? I have a 2007 ford five hundred.

Remove as much diesel fuel as possible from the gas tank and refill it with gasoline. You may have to crank the car to purge the diesel fuel out of the fuel lines. After that, it should start and run okay. There should be no damage to the engine from the diesel fuel.

Fill it up with the highest octane fuel, use gas treatment and fuel injection system cleaner, and drive the diesel out of the system. The car will not like it, the engine may knock and stutter and generally not want to cooperate. After a few tanks of good gas and gas treatment and engine cleaner you may consider replacing the fuel filter. If this solution worked, it would be the cheapest.

Knocking-Tapping noise

1998 Audi A4 Quattro Engine Noise

the timing is too far advanced at the time of the noise, the "diesel knock" is detonation

or this could be from using fuel with a low octane rating, try premium or octane booster.

or may have carbon build up in the conbustion chamber causing fuel to ingnite while entering cylinder

Knock in engine

it can also be an injector. injectors tend to supply more diesel after long service. To check if this is the problem: let the motor idle whilst it knocks. start from the front of the motor- loosen no1 injector fuel line- the motor will start idling roughly as fuel supply to no1 piston is starved. If the knock persists, tighten the fuel line and move to no2 injector and repeat the process. the knock will gradually go away if one of the injectors' fuel lines are loosened and the injector is faulty. If you get 1 or more injectors with these symptoms, remove and replace the injector. If the problem persists, it can either be that one of the diesel pump plungers are worn and supplies too much fuel or a big end bearing is faulty.
