    I have a bit of a sputter around the higher rpm's when I drive around too. Its weird and a bit annoying but normally up shifting gets rid of it.

    I have a 95 Rodeo and I get the same problem when driving at higher speeds and if I down shift it accelerates fine for a about 5-10 more MPH than the RPM'S drop about 2 or 3 hundred while the pedal is still floored and the whole car begins to shake. pleas repost if you have found a solution to your problem

    My 88 Pup will '****' and sputter when cold at higher RPM. It goes away warmed up. Could it be the heat riser valve sticking? Or carb related? It's annoying in traffic, possibly dangerous as I drive delivery for a dliving.

Do i have a knock sensor

Knock sensors usually are found on turbo charged engines. Have a diagnostics run on your car to pinpoint the problem.

2003 chevy trailblazer motor knocking and throwing a small squeak

Henry, first need to determine if it's the actual engine that is knocking. Other accessories (water pump, steering pump, etc) could cause a knock. If the ECM knock sensor picks up a knock, regardless of where it originated from, will start to make timing and fuel adjustments which may cause it to hesitate or "sputter". You can take off the drive belt and start the engine. This will be the tale. If you hear the knocking, it's obviously in the engine and could be as bad as crank bearings or even the torque converter. Have you had any work done recently? If there is no knocking when the engine is running without the serpentine belt, you should now be able to narrow down the bad component by rotating each drive pulley until you find the damage..

Car will start for a few seconds and cut off then wont start at all also has code p0174 and putters bad when i try to give it gas

this trouble code means your system is running to lean on bank 2, Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 2 is generally the side of the engine that doesn't have cylinder #1. You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration

My oil light was dinging and it started puttering and knocking then white smoke started comeing out. Is it possible the engine is not ruined?

The possibility would be extremely remote. If the engine will turn over when you try to start it, then it is likely rebuilable but it would be cheaper to find a used one in a scrap yard.Rebuilding would be in the $2500 to $3000 range but likely cheaper than a new block from BMW.Hope this helps.
