Not much to go with here.

Firstly, check the oil level. Does the vehicle have a history of using oil? Low (or no) oil pressure can cause the bearings to make a heavy knocking sound

Secondly, does the noise only occur only while you are in motion? If there is no noise when sitting still, idling, then probably something in the drive train, other than the engine is the culprit. Now to go further with this thought...do you feel any vibration while driving and hearing the sound? If yes, check your wheel lugs to make sure they're not loose.

I don't like being so vague, but I'm not sure what you're experiencing

Fan making clanking noise like it is hitting something the part seems to be located in the lower left front passenger side


sounds like blower motor fan for heat, the motor itself can be going bad or something is hitting fan blade inside heater box, I have seen all different things in heater boxes including acorns , leaves and general debris causing noises when fan for heater runs, you need to take it apart and check for anything that might be hitting fan if not motor is going bad and needs replacement, good luck.

Noise from motor flywheel


This is possible with engine off through a round inspection hole on transmission bell housing you can see the flywheel with a flashlight . now have someone rotate the engine by hand as you watch the flywheel a slight back and forth on rotation of engine can produce the noise and seeing the flywheel lag in rotation can prove the failure.

Ford windstar 3.8i had a burst hose, lead to failed waterpump then burnt head gasket. all these were changed yrt the car smokes and makes a clanking noise


when the car blew the antifreeze out the motor got very hot -this probably destroyed the rings and cylinders of at least a couple of cylinders-the clanking noise is possibly a bad rod bearing-your motor needs to be completely re built-or a remaufactured motor installed-sorry Denny

My Tempeture Gage in my car goes up way too fast and warm air is not blowing into the vehicle. There is occasionally a clanking noise near the heater core underneath the center of the dash, I have no idea...


recheck fluid fill and reservoir, Make sure waterpump is circulating, Is the occasional clank when operating controls? Possible air flow control door sticking or binding. Also a possible heat air bubble popping in core. Also fan blower motor making contact with housing or blower cage

Terrible noises


This would sound like possible differential noises, possibly a spider gear has a broken tooth or other defect. You could raise the backend off the ground (both wheels or one wheel at a time); place shifter in neutral, then have a friend turn one wheel, while the other is held in place (or left in contact with ground). If you get similiar (but probably less terrible), then remove the diff. cover (pan for oil needed), and look for any visible defects. Services of a mechanic might be needed.
