Usually an indication of Bad fuel, needs a tune up or Slipped Timing. Most likely bad fuel or tune up depending on when the last time you replaced the plugs and wires was. If you have been using the 87 Octane low grade fuel that would cause this or if you happened to get some bad fuel at a station. The vehicle will run on 87 octane but was designed to have a minimum of 89 octane fuel, the mid grade. If you haven't replaced your spark plugs in the last 25,000 miles replace the spark plugs and wires. If you suspect the fuel is the issue you can get injector cleaner or Octane boost and add to a FULL tank of gas to clean it out.

2003 chrysler concord nocks pings left side


Knocking and pinging are two separate things. "Knocking" usually refers to the sound an engine makes when internal mechanical parts, such as piston rod bearings or connecting rod bearings, begin to wear and cause a deep "knock, knock, knock" sound during engine rotation. "Pinging" refers to the tapping sound you get upon acceleration, either when using fuel that is to loo octane for the vehicle, or when static timing is set too far advanced, or when the cylinder heads are overheating due to clogged water channels or thin oil.
If you are hearing KNOCKING on the left side, it is likely time for an engine rebuild. If you are hearing PINGING, you may need a better grade of fuel, or you are way overdue for either an oil change or a major tune-up.
