It may be due to lack of quality of the fuel you are using. Try good quality fuels having anti knocking agents (It is a gasoline additive used to reduce engine knocking and increase the fuel's octane rating. If the problem persists your engine is bad.

99 alero 3.4 blew the head gasket, intake gasket and water pump. Changed all of it. Rough start and high idle now. What could cause the oil light to stay on with the engine knocking and shaking?

More bad news. Have the oil pressure checked. Did any coolant get in the oil? Did it run like that for some time? Knocking and shaking is bad news-check it out carefully.

if its kknocking thats not a good sign thats usually a motor rebuild but if its a tap then it could be a lifter or something loose under the valve cover ive had the tapping noise and knocking happen to me tapping on a 67 chevy truck turns out it was the lifters then knocking in a 92 honda accord turns out it was a bent rod so it had to have the motor rebuilt as far as power loss it may have a clog in a fuel line or something shouldnt be the pump unless the vehicle doesnt start or it shuts off while driving, and the smell of gas on the oil dipstick im not to familiar with that but im positive that thats not good;

Our 2000 Ford Windstar has developed a shudder and knocking when accelerated or in a strain (like uphill). The problem seems to be located on the driver's side and from the sound (Knocking) seems to be in...

Look at your motor mounts ( very likely), a bad tire on the driver's side, or perhaps a worn strut or some other worn out suspension part.
God bless your efforts.

I think my fan is isnt working. There is steam coming from the radiator and coolant all over...after I parked the motor started knocking. Enough to shake the car. I drive a 1999 crv se

You definately have a overheating problem that needs to be resolved but you have a bigger problem with the knocking and shaking. Your car needs to be looked at by a professional mechanic to determine the extent of the damage and figure out a plan of action. Knocking and shaking is an indication of internal damage to the engine. Sorry, hope this helps.
