If you want to replace just one rod you should go ahead and rebuild the engine.you say the motor is still running fine?if you can pull the oil pan off you might be able to identify which rod is knocking,if so you may be able to replace just the bearings on that particular rod.that is if the crank isnt scarred.the only way to know if the crank is scarred is to pull the pan off.as far as i know,the only way to get the pan off is to pull the motor,unfortunatlly.one other al ternative is to buy a junk yard motor.which isnt a bad idea,if you have to pull the motor out anyway.

It is a 6 cylinder engine, and it is making a knocking sound. We think it's either a thrown rod or a loose rod, what do i do?


If it's a 3800 you need to get a new balancer. They com apart and rattle. If the oil light is on and it is knocking that may be a bearing problem, but 3800 very seldom does have a bearing problem.

1999 suburban , seems that the crank is knocking hard. was going to purchase a crank and rebuild. what do you think?


It's proably a rod not the crank a crank noise would thump and be noisey on initial start up. a knocking or rattle is the connecting rod. I would get a price for a short block from jasper engines and not mess around if u havent done something like this before. You have to pull the engine and it's alot of knowing what your doing from there. Jasper offers a 3yr 100.000 mile warrantee if you want to keep the truck give em a call otherwise Call yr local boneyard for a low mile used engine but then again buyer beware.

I have a 1998 GMC Sierra, when I start it in the morning it makes a knocking noise but once it warms up it goes away, what could be causing this?


We really need to know more about what kind of knocking you are hearing.

Pinging, clink clink, sounds like the time you got bad gas and put a strain on the engine causing it to knock. Airflow sensor telling the injectors how rich or lean to mix the fuel. Computer sets fuel air mix. timing , ect to match operating temp and if it is going bad throws the whole thing out of balance.

Ticking... click click click sound from the top of the engine that gradually fades,,( lifters on cam and valve chatter) sticking lifters can be treated with oil additive to clean them out if they aren't stopped up to bad. If that doesn't work or the noise keeps getting louder you need to have someone look at it or you can damage your cam or bend a valve and that can lead to a cascade failure of cam. lifters, valves and possible broken pistons.

Knocking. KNOCK KNOCK knock knock,from the bottom of the engine that fades ( rod bearing worn and slapping the crank til it gets enough oil to float it on the crankshaft or crank bearings worn and bearings trying to spin in the races)
If it is a hard knock could be a worn rod bearing or a partially stopped up oil port in the crankshaft that doesn't let the oil do its thing until it is warmed up. This problem can be slowed down with cleaning additives but the damage has already been done and will do nothing but get worse over time. If it is a bottom end bearing don't let it totally fail. If you have a mechanic you trust get him to listen to it and help you figure out what needs to be done. Once you have heard these noises and have someone point out the differences you don't forget them.
Remember. Sooner you get this figured out the less damage done and the cheaper the repair bill will be.

MY ENGINE F22B SOUNDS LIKE DIESEL. WHAT'S THE SOLUTION/


Do you have a loss of power or overheating? Listen under the front of your vehicle. If you hear a rattle or a knocking noise coming from your oil pan it would be your bottom end "rod bearings". Probably cheaper to replace the engine than it is to have the crank turned or replaced.

Better have someone diagnose it, if you're going to a shop you better tow it.

Have a 2005 for f-150 started with ticking, knocking noise with no power. they changed the spark plugs did not help the truck is at Bickford Motor in Snohomish wash. they think it is the cam. do you have...


The ticking would be a bad valve lifter, bent or broken push rod
As far as the knocking, could be:
cam bearing, or cam
crank bearing
rod bearing
Might even be the knock sensor.
