Why is there a knocking sound from the top of the engine?

disable each cylinder one at a time. If the noise goes away it is likely a rod knock and is terminal. A new engine is the only way to resolve. If it does not go away than it is possible it is a wrist pin, also terminal, or in the valve train.

if you think it could be in the valve train try this. Add 1/2 can of seafoam motor tune to the oil. Start the car and let it run. If the noise goes away it was a valve train issue. change the oil and make sure you are keeping up with the proper maintenance for you vehicle.

if the noise continues than i would seek a professional ear to listen to eat and give an opinion.

A knocking that starts when engine is cranked then it goes away

The knock is likely a worn connecting rod bearing. Are you using the correct weight of oil, never use any heavier than 10W30W, heavy oil viscosity's cause slow circulation through the oil passages and starve the engine's bearings for oil.

2000 gc lmtd-recently heard something knocking sounded like something loose, checked oil and was completely out...put oil in and right away the knocking went away but soon after the knocking came...

I'm going to tell you what you don't want to hear. Once you run it out of oil or excessively low on oil to the point that it's knocking you likely (99%) have damaged the engine rod and main bearings as well as the oil pump (possibly other internal parts as well).
you could try using a good viscosity improver like lucas additive but generally it won't help with that kind of problem. Best option is a good engine from a scrapyard....expensive, but less than a rebuild.
Wish I could tell you to push a little red button somewhere and it will be fine but in reality, oil is like your blood...Run out of it and the engine is dead.

My 96 chrysler lhs has a knocking/rattleing sound coming from the bottom engine and as you push down on the gas the faster you drive the louder it rattles

if the noise is coming from the bottom end of the motor then you have either bad connecting rod bearings or bad crank bearings.if when you snap the throttle you hear a double knock then its connecting rod bearing if not then its crank bearing.a collapsed piston can sound low in the engine and its usually a dull knock noise.if you have the engine running and the noise is there and you pull off one plug wire at a time(and reconnect it after checking) and the noise goes away or mostly goes away with the wire unhooked then the cylinder that the noise changed is the cylinder that has a bad piston.

I get a clunking noise from the front of my truck when I cold start it and only for a few min as is warms up then it goes away. This started in cold weather 35-60F. I have a chevy silverado 2001 1500...

this engine has forged pistons whitch expand more than hyper-u-tec-tic pistons when heated . this is normal for this engine . my brother has a chevy silverado 2001 1500 4.8Lwith 650,000 kms and he said his made that noise when it was brand new and the dealer said this is normal. the truck still runs like new with lots of power and it still makes that noise before it reaches operating temp then goes away.My brother uses lucas oil treatment and it helps quiet the knock a little when cold.

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock

It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

Possible AC fan rubbing 95 olds cutlass ciera

the next time it does this, locate heater blower motor and either give it a tap or grab a hold of it and see if it changes sound or goes away altogether. it could be squerl cage on heater fan maybe rubbing on heater box, or heater motor could be on its way out. if nothing happens when you do this at least you can elimenate that. it going away when you apply the break could just be happenstance, as heater motors start with little noise that last short time and progressely get worse over time. it also could be speedo cable, the cable itself runs inside a flexable tube, witch runs from speedo head to transmission and there is lubercant inside this tube and they can go bad, unless needle on speedo jumps around i dought its that. also i'am no expert, i just went to the school of hard knocks. hope something here will help. OLD SCHOOL.

Knocking noise at idle

This is AC compressor rattle, don't worry about it unless it is really loud, in that case replace the compressor.
