There was a class action law suite not too long ago,sounds like you have some piston slap going on,short block needs to be replaced-take to a different dealer and tell them that ever since the other dealer worked on it,this noise has emerged

Ive rebuilt the oil pump on my 98 bonneville and the oil pressure is still low and causes my motor to knock


The problem isn't with the oil pump. The oil pumps job is to move oil around the engine. What the problem is, the main and rod bearings are so worn out that it can't create oil pressure anymore. That's why you have a knock in the bottom end of the engine. The tighter the clearances are at the main/rod bearings, the better the oil pressure you'll have. The cam bearings also play a roll in producing oil pressure.

Engine ticking. and gets louder at high rpms. it is constantly rattling


First, you are using Regular Unleaded Gasoline, right? If so, you either have a Rod knocking (bad rod bearings), worn valves/seals/springs, faulty engine mount, etc. I would first inspect the Engine mounts. If the ticking is coming from inside the Engine, you will need to get the Cylinder Head rebuilt, or the block rebuilt (crankshaft, rods, bearings, pistons, etc.) If the Engine mounts are fine, you will probably need to get the engine rebuilt.

There are several reasons why you would hear a loud knock from the engine, and the knock will usually be either in the top end or in the lower or bottom end of the engine.

The first thing that should be done is to drain the engine oil, and then pour the oil filter into a pan where you can see it, and if there is a lot of metal flakes, or a fine cloud of brass floating in the engine oil, you will not want to waste the time or the money trying to repair that engine by dropping the oil pan and replacing the piston rod bearings, it will only be a very temporary patch at best, that is if the patch even lasts for a day.

If you do find metal flakes in the engine oil and oil filter, the piston rod bearings will not be the only bearings in the engine that will need to be replaced, and the crankshaft main bearings can only be replaced by removing the engine and placing it upside-down on a good engine stand. The biggest problem would be that even if you did successfully replace the piston rod and crankshaft main bearings, it would only take one piece of metal flake that was left over in the engine block to find its way to one of your new bearings and then it will take no time at all before that engine will be right back where you started, and that is how important just the cleaning process is in repairing or replacing internal engine components.

If you do not find any metal in the engine oil or oil filter, then you should attempt to find the actual cause of the knock before you decide how to repair the engine, and you will have to remove the engine oil pan to inspect the rod bearings, and if you do remove the engine oil pan make sure that when you inspect the rod bearings that you only do so one at a time because you can not mix up the rod caps, and be very sure that when you remove a rod cap that you do replace it the same way that it came off, and if you turn around the rod cap and install it the wrong way or scratch the crankshaft bearing surface the rod bearing will fail.

If you can hear the knocking louder from under the vehicle then the most likely causes for a lower end engine knock are a damaged piston, worn out piston rod bearings, a broken piston rod, a broken flex-plate, and sometimes loose torque converter to flex-plate bolts, and the only parts that you can really check out without opening up the engine would be a broken flex-plate, or for any loose torque converter to flex-plate bolts.

If you can hear the knocking more from the top of the engine, then the most likely causes for an upper engine knock would be a faulty lifter, or broken rocker arm, or a broken valve spring allowing the valve to contact the piston, and it will require the removal of the valve covers and possibly the intake manifold to inspect for the problem.

If you have any doubts then it would be a good idea to consider a good used engine that you can hear run before you buy it, or a rebuilt engine for that vehicle.

I hope that this information will help you out and save you some time and a lot of money.

2007 dodge grandcaravan knocking noise


If your engine has a rod knock the engine has to be rebuilt or replaced rebuilt is about $2000 to $3000 dollars and a new motor even more.It is unusal for a rod to be out around 60,000 miles unless it was ran real hard or run out of oil or way low on oil.

Rough engine idle and check engine light on and engine knock


take it to a dealer unless there is someone that you know that can work on that kind of a car, sounds like the motor is going to have to be rebuilt if there is rod knock

1986 chevette has alot of knocking coming from the engine.Lifters have been adjusted,but problem still persists, what else could it be?


Lifters tick. Rod bearings knock(typically the harder you mash the gas, the louder the knock). poor quality gas can do it if you need a tune-up.

Rod knock


you could take the engine apart and put a rod in it but if i were you if you got the engine out, have it rebuilt. no telling how long it will last either my suggestion is to take it easy on it and change the oil frequently

1994 Honda Accord EX VTEC Engine Knocking.


You will have to pull the engine and remove the crank shaft and connecting rods you have a bad rod bearing. I will strongly suggest taking to a machine shop and having the crankshaft turned and the rods resized. This will be no minor undertaking and will require time to repair. You could also look into purchasing a rebuilt engine.
