Why is my engine making a knocking noise, could I possibly get a list of things that cause knocking? It's a 1995 Buick century special, four cylinder.


Many things could be the cause. Common ones are:

  1. Low oil level.
  2. Low oil pressure due to worn out oil pump.
  3. Connecting rod knock (part of piston assembly)
  4. "Piston Slap" - this occurs when the cylinder wall gets worn into a cone shape, wider at the base from the side-to-side motion of the piston over millions of cycles. The wear gets to the point where the piston skirt (bottom edge) hits the side of the cylinder wall as it hits the bottom of the stroke and begins moving upward. Eventually the skirt will break off and the engine will need rebuilding or overhaul.
  5. You could also have a simple valve tap, as you are not really defining knock, although valves usually are more of a ticking noise rather than a knock.
  6. If the knocking only occurs on acceleration, you could have what is known as "octane ping" from fuel that is too low in octane. Not likely with a four cylinder, but some really cheap gas grades are occasionally guilty of being less than advertised for octane.
  7. There are even a few transmission issues that can cause knocking, so make sure you narrow down the issues before diving in too deep.
Hope that helps!

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

Why does my 1993 toyota tercel make a knocking noise when i accelerate?


If it is coming from the engine, you probably have a rod knocking. Make sure you have the correct amounst of oil in your engine. Low oil will cause this noise. If it comes from the wheels, you need to pinpoint the location.It could me breaks knocking, tie rods, or your hubs or wheel bearings. Where is the knock coming from?

Stuck in four wheel high, low wrks fine but won't engage into reg. four wheel


Either the electric motor is stuck/ needs replaced on the transfer case or if you have been hearing grinding (whining noises) the tranfer case needs replaced.

On the fly four wheel drive goes in and out ...decides on its own when it wants to work or not - makes growly noise when going rom 2 wheel to four (regular four-not low four)


I am thinking the shifter linkage on the PTO has slipped. It is probably sitting between the two selection areas of the switch that controls the front hub engagement.

I have a 1999 GMC Suburban. I have automatic four wheel drive but when I shift into four wheel high it makes clunking sound. I have not tried four wheel low. I wondered why I can still use auto four wheel...


the auto 4 wheel does the same as part time in jeeps, it engages only when the vehicle loses traction. when auto 4 wheel is on the truck isn't fully in 4 wheel drive. my 02 sierra makes the clunk noise too but it does engage. try checking your fluids, i know its way pass the time for me to change mine out.
