Knocking or tapping inside your engine is generally caused by low oil pressure resulting from worn crankshaft bearings or a large amount of hard carbon plugging the oil pump pickup screen. Timing chain guides or a broken transmission flex plate can also make a noise similar to a larger engine problem. It takes a very experienced tech to differentiate between the actual noise sources and may require that the engine be torn down to pinpoint it. Generally a good repair is very expensive and unless the vehicle is in exceptionally great condition otherwise, usually it is better to get another than to repair the one you have. I can't see or hear the problem so don't give up 'till you get a hands on opinion form a good shop. In this case, I hope I'm wrong!!!

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.

Knocking nosie from left side of 06 saturn ion? hear it all the time but mainly after 2nd gear when it shifts is the worst part?


Have your motor supports checked. Also the drive shaft could be causing the problem if that knocking is not coming from inside the motor.

Loud knock in front of engine


IT could be something as simple as a lose pulley or in a bad case something inside the motor. Really need to get a pro to look at it because anything else would just be a guess.

Possible oil Leak at Knock Sensor


if I'm not mistaken, the knock sensor is mounted on the transmission bell close to the motor and detects the flywheel position. It is possible that the valve cover gaskets might be leaking from the bottom side and dripping onto the knock sensor, but it is also possible that the leak might be from the rear main seal of the motor. If that is the case, you will have to drop the ****** to replace the seal. If the knock sensor was bad your vehicle would not start at all, just crank. Try to wipe all the old oil with rags and look very closely where it gets oily again

That's where the blower motor is located. Could be broken, or maybe something fell into it. You're going to have to remove it to either remove the object or replace the unit.
