Question about Mitsubishi Lancer

I am looking at a 1994 Lancer coupe for my daughter, we took it for a test drive and it seemed good but there was a knocking noise coming from underneath every now and again on taking off or breaking, do you know what this could possibly be. Thanks

Hard to tell from an email what a knocking sound might be.
Is it an engine knock -
1. may mean bad hydrolic valve lifters.
2. may be low octane gas.
3. be poor oil circulation in the engine.
4. may be a bad engine or bad transmission.
5. may be bad universal joints.
6. may be bad motor mounts.
7. may just need a tune up.
thats a few things for you to look for - Good Luck

You hear connecting rod noise or crankshaft knock due to worn main bearings.dont buy that vechicle engine is shot.any time you hear engine knocking it needs overhauling or replaced fix a engine to remove engine and replace with new or rebuild engine.you will be out of $2500 to $3000 go look for another vechicle.knocking engine wont last a month.cant go far distant engine oil pressure will drop down until engine lock up.

My 1994 nissan sentra has a bad knocking in it. can it be a stuck lifter?


Knocking is most certainly not plugs and wires. A lifter could be it or you could have a broken piston rod/end. Not good and should be looked at by a mechanic.

A knocking and grinding noise coming from underneath the car,


if you had the CV JOINTSreplaced , they both should have lasted for a long time, how much do you trust your mechanic ? always something to consider ! also, the mechanic who replaced the CV'S last time, did he do a good job ? was there a grinding noise then ? did you get a warranty on the previous cv's, I'm not tryin to point any fingers, just sayin, you need to be aware of every move you make, and who you make it with. NOW, go to good transmission shop, have them test drive ,with you in car, and inspect your front end and transmission, its free , good luck

Number three funnily enough always seems to wear out faster than the other cylinders, on all 4 cylinders. Have you checked the valve clearances. It sounds like a typical tappet like knock?

Front end knocking from 97 sebring


Move it to 3rd instead of drive and see if you still have the noise. May be transmission related since you have replaced everything else.

4x4 light and knocking noise after driving


If you hear the noise after the engine is turned off that noise is most likely the exhaust system cooling down. As far as the light for the 4 wheel drive that requires a test be run with a special scan tool while the problem is occurring.
