I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M 3.5L high output it i recently started hearing pinging. Sounds are a knocking engine sounds during acceleration . I had it for 2years bin driving it same since I got it


pinging or detonation , is uncontrolled spontaneous combustion of the mixture before the ignition is required.
it is not always heard and if left unattended will raise the combustion temperature high enough to melt the tops of the pistons
it is from incorrect air/fuel ratio , ignition timing or hot spots in the combustion chamber
run the fault codes as the sensors that keep the air/fuel mixture correct are outside parameters and you need to know which ones to replace
primary suspects are the heated oxygen sensor ( before the cat converter) the MAF/VAF sensors for air flow , BARO sensor for air density

89 Chevy s10 blazer 4.3 I've tried 93 octane gas vavles rattle under a load


it is not the valves that are rattling under load but detonation in the combustion chambers from incorrect air/fuel mixture and ignition timing
The rattle is the pistons being slapped against the cylinder wall and the rings taking a pounding in the ring grooves
detonation is the untimed spontaneous combustion of a weak air/fuel mixture ( diesel action) before the spark ignites the mixture
It can melt the top out of the piston because it sends the combustion temperature up to 200 degrees c higher than normal
Evidence of detonation in an engine can be seen in the crown of the piston as small pit marks as if being pounded by ball bearings
How to fix --- drop the advance timing of the ignition back to 12 btdc ( standard on chev motors) or better back to 10 degrees btdc
increase the main jet sizes in the carbys or make sure that the power valves are operational in the carbies
The correct air/fuel mixture is 15:1 and that should be maintained at all times unless under acceleration when it can go up to 17 or 18:1 but if it drops below 14:1 when the throttle is wide open and the fuel is not increased to compensate ( accelerator pump or power valve ) then detonation will occur

Code P0171


P0171 - System Too Lean Bank 1 Share
1 ' Add Comment Possible causes
- Intake air leaks
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
- Incorrect Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose connection
What does this mean? Tech notes
If the P0171 is combined with the P0174 code, it's very likely that the problem is caused by an intake leak. If there are no intake leaks, the next step is to replaced the air filter and clean the air flow meter. If the problem persist the front oxygen (O2) sensor may need to be replaced.
What does this mean? When is the code detected?
- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too small. (The mixture ratio is too lean.)
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Excessive Fuel Consumption
P0171 Description
With the Air/Fuel Mixture Ratio Self-Learning Control, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The Engine Control Module (ECM) calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios.
In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the ECM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) (2 trip detection logic).

What is code p017.2 for a 2002 dodge caravan


This is the closest I've come to the code you are looking for. I searched all Dodge codes and didn't see any with a "point 2" but I found code P0172. According to EngineCodes.com your fuel mixture is probably too rich. This is what the site had to say:

Possible Causes for this Code:
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
Read more: http://engine-codes.com/p0172_dodge.html#ixzz35waCcFhN

This code is detected when:
- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too large. (The mixture ratio is too rich.)

Car runs great except it has a rattle in the mid range ?


this may be detonation from incorrect air/fuel /timing combination. IT is generally lean mixture and mostly can be heard on acceleration. Run fault codes to find faulty sensor that is affecting the correct air fuel mixture.

P0174 FORD - Fuel Injection System Too lean Bank 2xicon.jpghttp://engine-codes.com/p0174_ford.htmlForum CodePossible causes- Intake air leaks
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
- Incorrect Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose connection Tech notes The codes is usually set when there is an intake leak after the air flow meter, before replacing any parts check for loose or broken hoses and intake gasket leak. On Ford some models dirty air filter, and dirty or faulty air flow sensor are the cause of the problem.

It's a very common problem for the Ford Windstar. Here a link to a web site with information how to repair:
When is the code detected?- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too small. (The mixture ratio is too lean.) Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Excessive Fuel ConsumptionP0174 FORD Description The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the engine Air/Fuel mixture ratio, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The PCM calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios.

In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the PCM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the engine light.

Possible Causes:
- Intake air leaks
- Front Heated oxygen sensor may be faulty
- Injectors may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
