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

My 2004 Pontiac sunfire engine is making a knocking noise what could it be


Internal damage to the engine. Usually a knocking is a loose piston rod that connects to the crankshaft. When the rod bearing gets too worn, it causes the rod to become loose around the crankshaft, and you get that horrible knocking noise or rattle. The engine has to be rebuilt (very expensive) or a replacement engine must be found.
If the knocking is loud, and not a ticking (valves or valve lifters), then it won't be long before the engine is destroyed. Too much pressure on the loose rod-soon it may come apart and blow a hole in your block from the rod disintegrating. Not a pretty sight!

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.

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.
