This is never,ever,a good sign,If you have changed the oil,and have used any weight other than 5w20,or5w30,this will happen,so change it as possible if this is the case.If the engine has a dead miss in it,then all it is is the piston,making noise be cause it is being pushed around up,and down,with no combustion to help it move.If there is a oil light on,this is not good either,even if the oil light warning isn`t on,the oil pump could have gone out.And a crankshaft bearing could be bad,weather or not the oil pump is fine.Have the oil pressure check,at a shop,and see what the oil pressure is running.Also,have the torque converter bolts checked to see if they have got loose,and look for a cracked,or broken flywheel,I hope this covers all the things it could be,for your answer,and a shop can tell you more,other things could cause this also,but I am not there,and it is hard for anyone to diagnose this kind of problem,to the exact,without inspecting,hands on.If this was any help,at all,please let us know,thank you.

Does a knock sensor sound like a rod knocking


Knock Sensor contains no moving parts and can not make any noise. It only detects noise in the engine block to allow the engine control computer to make adjustments as needed.

What can cause knock sensor to get bad on 2007 ford edge


Well the knock sensor does not make any noise. It senses the vibration in the engine if there is a spark knock to let the computer know to slow down the spark timing.
You probably have a weak piston or lifter or rod bearing making the noise.

There is a knocking sound in my engine


sounds like a rod is knocking, check oil to make sure it is full. If it has plenty of oil then if it checks out ok, you probable need new engine.

Engine Knocking / No Power


Dosent sound good. Oil light on means you lost oil pressure. and the knocking sound is the damage done due to low pressure. Start looking for another engine or another van.

Knocking sound


Knocking sound is bad and most likely time for a new engine. The knocking noise your are hearing is the pistons knocking against the engine block when it goes up and down.

Inspect the level of your engine oil to make sure you have enough oil in there.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

1997 LeSabre has engine "knock"


If it knocks at 50 it will knock sitting still if you race it up. Is the oil pressure good? These motors hardly ever have a bearing problem. The only knock problem was the harmonic balacer that comes apart and knocks. The rubber falls apart and it will make a knock sound all the time, more with the ac on. If you have a knock at 50 or highway speed only you may need a outer tie rod end only. Get the front end checked as they will make a knocking sound on the highway. reply

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy, and it started making "knocking sounds". Ck the oil, it was OK


If the sound does not go away then the engine has internal problems. Some times if someone over revs the engine it will cause knocks.If the oil is not changed regularly and the engine gets hot due to low water,racing engine then engines dont last long.
If its a deep solid knock its a crank shaft bearing.
If its a lighter knock then some times if you remove the right plug wire and the knock goes away (of course the engine will run rough due to lost cylinder) its that pistons wrist pin bearing.
At any rate your engine will need rebuilt or replaced.Or get a different car.
