    Does it make the same sound when the heater controls are opposite to what they have been? ie. hot instead of cool?

4.7L V8. Why is there dashbord noise under the compartment in the passenger side every time I turn off the ignition?


It is the evaporator control module, it's the piece that controls the heat and air for your car, it's basically a flap that goes back and forth when you change the temperature. The plastic gears that turn it are bad. Easy fix

Why is my camaro knocking when i hit the gas but when i let off it stops? is it because it needs a oil change, or the valves are loose or threw a barring?


Knocking under load is usually a failed rod bearing.
If it sounds more like a ticking noise it could be ignition timing or low octane fuel.

2006 FORD FUSION 2.3l i get a rapping sound in my engine it starting when i accelerated from a light and got worse with driving sounds like something is rattling around under the valve cover


Does it sound like Metal on metal noise? or like a knocking noise?

If it increases with RPM that means you may have a serious issue.

If your comfortable i'd take off one coil pack at a time and see if the knocking stops. If it stops that cylinder might have Rod Knock..

it could be valve lash, or a valve train tick as well. There are several different things sadly.

I have a knocking sound in the engine when I first start it up that goes away after a few minutes. 1998 Ford Windstar with about 116,000.


Is it a low down in the engine toc, toc, toc or a lighter tic, tic , tic sound?
The lower one is quite often the main bearings, rather than pulling the engine to fix it run 10W30 oil in it instead of 5W30 and treat the old lady with respect and don't rev or drive her till the knocking stops. It stops because the oil pressure has build up. If it is the lighter ticking this is the hydraulic lifters, don't worry about it, just do the same. Make sure you don't go longer than about 4000 miles between oil changes. I put Synthetic blend in all my cars and run 5000 miles between changes.
Hope this helps.

2003 Mitsubishi Montero (full-size) check engine light is on, the engine sounds like it knocks as I accellerate and the shift diff. lights blink after driving 25 or 30 miles.


The engine is probably making a knocking sound because the oil needs to be changed or replaced. The check engine light is indicating that you will need regular dealership servicing soon, however you can still drive the vehicle but depending on mileage it will determine what services are required.
