The timing has probably gone out of adjustment. Do not drive the car until you have it checked out. You may or may not have a valve / piston clearance. Sometimes carbon build up can make a clearance engine no longer have it. I hope this is the case with your engine. It is possible that you are experiencing pre-detonation (knocking and pinging) This can be a timing issue as well. An auto mechanic or experienced friend should help you with this issue. Good luck with your repairs. Thank you for letting me serve you on Fixya.

Hello,
There is a possibility that the old motor was not burning properly and you have carbon build up on the O2 sensers. A poorly functioning O2 senser will not allow the Fuel/Air mixture to work as you give it gas under load. You could have multiple O2 sensers too.

Went to start my 1999 windstar for no reason it started making a knocking noies after it quit knocking it started smoking ran fine when I parked it what might of happened


You have described symtoms usually associated with two different engine problems. The knocking is generally a sign of a lower engine (Con rod or main) bearing failure. The smoking is generally a sign of oil in the upper cylindr/combustion chamber. This can be traced to rings and or valve problems in most cases. Unless of course a valve or valve spring has failed which may cause physical damage to the upper end. Any further attempt to start or run the engine at this point without a proper diagnosis could caus efurther damage. Did the eng stop running after the smoke was seen?

My 98 pontiac firebird suddenly starting knocking.


Sounds like a bad head gasket. Look for milky oil in the coolant resovior.

I just purchased a rodeo from a friend, HE seems 2001 3.2 liter


If it's running, the engine is not necessarily a total loss. Sounds like you may need new valves and the rocker arm may be shot. Depending on the current mileage on the vehicle and how much you paid it may be worth having a good mechanic give you an estimate for an overhaul.

My ranger run's fine on level but on hill's


you got head gasket problems, white smoke is an indication of water turning to steam, probably doing uphill because the engine is under greater load.i think the knocking is pre ignition, carry out an engine compression test to verify your head gaskets integrity
