You first need to make sure there is enough oil in the car and the knock sensor is good give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michhigan Man.

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.

The engine has a nkockig sound..could this be caused by a bad knock sensor?


No it isnt a knock sensor the knock sensor job is to detect a knock noise and ****** timing. The knock that it is looking for is from octane or fuel or pinging that creates N0X s. A pollution gas. The knocking noise that you are hearing is different. If it is a multiple noise ar a rattling sound that will be the valves. There are other noises like a piston knock this knock is a sharp metallic noise, If the knock occurs only on acceleration that noise is a crankshaft noise. You need to check you oil level and make sure it is corrects. Look at the oil condition do you see silverish or whitish condition,is the oil deep black.

I have a 2000 ford mustang v6 I was putting 89 octane gas in it. my manual said to burn 87 octane so i'm burnning 87 now .but when I accellerate I get a knocking, rattling sound took it to a ford dealer...


Humm, give it some time. there are upper cylinder cleaners, but I worry about converter damage, and oxygen sensor damage. The lower the octane, the hotter and more masssive the burn, exactly backwards from what you would think, but higher octane is slower burn and av.gas is really, really slow.
Ford has had slow to start issues that traced back to drivers using too high octane....

Still, if it keeps pinging, you may need to run higher than spec octane.
I would have thought that your car would have knock sensor that would trim this issue...

66 Mustang- 289 V8- has an intermittent surge and rattling noise


Sounds like crappy gas. The 289 may not like pump no-lead and the rattling sound you are hearing may be pinging / knocking.

Flashing oil light/ loss of power


Check your converter on your exhaust when it's running and see if the noise of rattling is coming from there.If it is you have a plugged converter,it's broken up and in piece's which will make noise and no power especially when calling for power.Be sure to let exhaust cool before repair is done.If the engine is making the noise like a knocking sound you should bring it to have it checked.Hope this help's.
