Where is the knock sensor located on a 2000 avalon slx?


Its inside the top end of the motor. There are knock sensor inside the motor. You have to take off the manifold and top half/plate of the motor. Garage charged me 500 bucks to replace a bad sensor. The sensors run 240 bucks.

Rattleing nose in front of car when excelarting, the more gas given the louder it gets


I have the same car and when she got around 200,000 i had to start running a heavier grade of motor oil. If you have high mileage then the cam support bearings, crankshaft support bearings have excessive oil clearance. Listen to the knock with the hood open. If the sound is a deep low tone knock then it is the lower end of the engine. If the knock is high pitched like a tic tic sound it is usually in the top end. Lower end is where the crankshaft and pistion are located and the top end is where the valves and camshafts are located in that engine. You can take a broom stick and probe around the engine (careful not to touch moving parts) and put it to youe ear with a little presure and you can hear different sections of the engine to see where the knock is the loudest. Kinda like a doctors stefascope. If it is more like a grinding noise it could be a tensioner pulley, idler pulley, alternator bearing, a/c compressor clutch.

Ok I have a 1985 nissan that has a knock coming from the engine and idk what it is? what could be wrong?


If it is knocking sounds like you may have broke a piston rod. I would not drive it because its cheaper to have it fixed now if you keep driving it the rod will most likelt come thru the block then your looking at replacing the whole engine. Good luck

Noking


a knock from the bottom of the motor is a big end bearing STOP DRIVING, new engine or rebuild required, a knock from the rear of the engine could be loose pressure plate on clutch assembly, that is if it is a manual, STOP DRIVING. a rattle from top end is lifters or rockers but you say its a knock so probably not it. one test to do, remove all drive belts to water pump etc and start if the knocking is still apparent then it is internal and time to consider trade in, rebuild or new engine.

Knocking noise


If it is coming from the top of the motor, I would say it is a lifter tapping. If the sound is coming from the lower end of the motor I would say you have a rod knocking. If it is alifter you can replace just that lifter, if it is the rod I would consider a rebuild.
