Well it sounds like your car is starting out in 4th gear which is overdrive,thats quite the load on the engine.knock sensor is what it says its a sensor.it is designed to sense knock on heavy accel..it is suppose to ****** your timing to stop knock. your mechanic is on the right track to say it is poss. the transmission.

I turn key and hear one click, but no engine start. Then turn key multiple times and it finally starts...need new starter?


If you gently shake the gear shift(just a ****) it starts immediately. My mechanic fixed it in one minute. The alternator is connected to some thing that is loose and after it got tightened - I never had this problem.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.

Its a '94 so engine or tranny mounts are a strong possibility...
You would need to seek the help of a mechanic to replace them.
