If things have degraded to the point the engine is knocking, it's unlikely anything you'll do now will remedy the problem. At the least this could call out new rod and/or main bearings. perhaps even a crankshaft.

Keeping a close eye on oil levels can help prevent things like this happening.

Sorry!

Knocking at oil pan when idling


sounds like lower engine damage, could be a bearing or low oil pressure but if knocking the damage is done. i would have a tech just double check it to make sure, i have seen flywheels make noise and pulleys and a/c compressors, so just make sure it is in the oil pan if so then engine will need repair.

engine knocking sound like worn engine bearings or low oil level. if oil level okay more likely oil pump has failed or engine bearings worn out or engine oil diluted with antifreeze or gasoline causing viscosity oil to be too thin.if oil and filter been changed.if you see check engine light flashing code scan for faulty knock sensor. if you see low oil light flashing engine knocking damaged to engine done.

No if the oil light has flickered you have oil pressure loss some time just belive the sensor do help us out. lifter do not cause oil pressure loss pressure is built in the rotation of the crankshaft. The knock under the plenum will point you to that cylinder that is affected, (main bearing) as for a 1995 the injectors can only cause a misfire but no knocking noise,will they honor the warranty

Loud knocking noise comming from engine?


1995 Ford Windstar 3.8L Engine Knocking noise on top side of engine near center of Air Plenum. Engine was completely rebuilt 2 years ago (28,000 miles on Re-Built Engine/ 156,000mile on Van). Coolant level is SAT, Engine oil level is Sat. Van was driven 2800 miles since last oil/filter change. Engine started surging as van slowed down to make a stop then engine shut off. Restarted engine and heard knocking noise. Shut engine off immediately. The oil light flickers on dash with engine running. Do fuel injectors make tapping noises when degraded? Is it possible hydraulic lifter not able to leak down or does not fill with oil? Oil pressure issue with the dash light flickering? I can see if the engine has allot of miles on it, the intake and exhaust valves begin to leak-by how ever this not the issue. Where do you start to locate engine knock noise? How is oil pressure checked to see if pressure is too low? Any help where to start would be appreciated.

Engine knocking noise in 2000 saab 9-3 SE?


It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped

Knocking when engine gets hot and car stopped


The fan clutch can make a knocking noise when it tries to engage. At idle it will have a rhythm to it when it tries to engage. You will have an over heating condition and the air conditioning may not work properly.

The fix is to replace the fan clutch and reprogram the engine control module.

Knocking noise from valve lifters , car was low on oil replaced oil will it correct itself


These engines were overhead cam.If you did put the oil back in as you said and the noise went away,no initial problem.The noise from the lifters, if its still there, is a ongoing problem.Maybe just an adjustment of the lifters needs to be done.Hope this helps

knocking in an engine is never a good thing. I'd check three things: engine bearings, valve lifters and timing chain, all of which can make noise. First thing though, is to put a mechanical gauge in place of the sending unit and check actual engine oil pressure. this will give you a good idea what is going on. low readings can be bearings, normal readings can be the other two items. I could give you a definite idea by listening, but I really can't hear it from here.!(one of the frustrating drawbacks to doing this online) An experienced tech can listen and tell you pretty much what's going on.

I have a 2004 Sonnata 6cyl. This morning I went to start it up and the engine made a loud knocking noise and the engine light came on. Could this be from low oil?


ok did the knocking noise speed up as you pressed the pedal? if so id check the oil first and see if that helps at all and if it continues to make the knockin sound you might have a thrown rod/piston. The oil can effect the the pistons being as it is the lubricant for the pistons to move up and down in the bores(cylinders) but the low oil would only cause the engine to start knocking if there hasnt been any oil added as needed for a long while. has you engine got hot or warmer than usual? the could also be a symptom of low oil.
