Hi

Engine knock, if it is coming from low down in the block, is usually caused by worn big ends, and is more pronounced at idle or under load.

Diesels, however have the added bonus of being able to create a nice knock due bad fuel atomisation, overfuelling, or excess oil burning.

Bad fuel atomisation is usually caused by dirty injectors.

Excess oil burning is usually caused by a worn turbo amongst other things.

Very best regards

Geordie

Hi i have a Ford Explorer 2003 v8 4.6 L.


Sounds Like A Piston Connecting Rod Knock this Happens from #1 Poor Oil Circulation at that or all Rods thus Causing Severe Wear to the Rod Bearing Or #2 Abuse Such As Unnecessary High reving at sestained Hi RPM's and this Is A Major Repair that Involves Basically Rebuilding the Engine. A Trained EAR Can Diagnose A Rod Knock. I can Pick this Out Just After 10-20 Seconds. All I can Advise is for you to Go to A "TRUSTED" Mech./Tech. for Diagnosis. Im hoping this Helps you Find the Problem, I am Unable to HEAR the Engine so this is as Much as I Can Do for you . I truely Hate to be the Bearer of Bad News but I Call it like I See it .
GOOD LUCK Evan, Ronnie

Slight knocking sound at higher RPMs. Oil light seems to come on occasionally at lower RPMs. Engine previously overheated.


Apparently the 3.5 liter V6 had a lot of oiling problems, see link attached.
Problems That Plague Chrysler 3 5L Engine Create Rebuild Opportunities
The slight knocking you hear may be a valve lifter that has gummed up. The head gasket problem may have allowed some coolant to get into the oil exacerbating gunk buildup. If it a deeper problem like rod bearings, you would have to decide if it is worth the trouble of fixing it or drive it until it drops.

2000 Honda Accord LX 4 cylinder 2.3 liter engine, rpm surges, won't stop reving up at start up


Sound like you jumped a tooth on the timing belt. Change it immediately. If it jumps more or completely fails you will bend all the valves. Just make sure you time it correctly. However a bad Mass Airflow sensor would cause the RPMs to go crazy. But the pinging is most likely the valve tapping the piston and needs immediate attention as well.

Oil leaking onto my timing belt on a 99 ford escort lx 2.0 sohc small knocking from engine head was replaced and all gaskets misfire happens and then it shutsoff or sputter


if you have oil leaking that severe, chances are that one of your spark plug holes have oil in them causing your misfire..in that case it would sound that you need to replace your valve cover gasket
to check pull one by one you ignition wire up from valve cover and check for oil in hole and on boot

hope this helps

1990 1.9 escort will not run over 15 to 25 mph i pulled the codes and got code 37 if i am reading the flashes right


It sounds like a blocked exhaust pipe , try reving engine an feel the pressure that comes out the rear exhaust and take note of engine revs then compare it with another vehicle. if you feel its weak you can try disconnecting front pipe from the first silencer/ exhaust and then do test again and see where reves go to , No need to over rev vehicle.
