Need help on fixing an Allis Chamers D-17 1962 tractor, the engine locked up, what can I check or do to know what the problem is? I heard a loud knock right before the engine quit during last summer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you heard a loud knock and engine died, just means you threw/broke a rod. Your best bet is to pull the engine out and have someone reputable rebuild the engine. All I can do friend is wish you the best because it's going to be hard to find a replacement rod for that old engine. But they ARE still out there. I think you'd be better off replacing the engine with a later model retro-fit. You may be able to get or have adaptors made to put a different style/make engine in. I just mounted a 1972 Kohler twin cylinder 17 horse engine in a 2009 Cub Cadet rider by removing and fitting the engine mounting plate from the '72 into the '09 chassis, setting it 2 inches farther forward and just got a belt that was 4 inches longer for the tranny belt and it worked perfectly. Now I can start it and drive it to where I'll park it for the winter, cover it up and finish it up next spring. The hood even closes completely. You can do anything with a bit of incentive. And a blown engine is incentive enough for me to do something about it.

I really doubt the knock sensor is the problem, check the connector 1st for water intrusion or oil, if u do replace it then u must torque it to the proper spec into the cooling system jacket of the block or it will set another code.

SOURCE: Have a 1990 Z71 4wd that with loud engine knock.

I'd consider some fresh, clean oil & filter change first of all, if it hasn't been done . drive it for a while providing it isn't too bad, & see if it goes away, if not get back to us.

SOURCE: knock sensor dont work for 2005 dodge durango

this problem is very seldom the knock sensor, it can be the harness connector at the sensor or the engine has excessive knock which will set a code, u did not mention the particular code so hard to say, the location of the knock sensor is the lower section of the engine block, it is screwed into what would normally be a block drain plug, if u replace it u need to torque it to whatever the factory spec is or it can cause it throw another code..

Was driving the 2010 Nav at interstate speeds, heard loud pop and check engine light started flashing, engine running rough, lost power. Changed plugs, checked cat. converter, any ideas?


Have the codes read before putting any other parts on. Flashing check engine is a critical warning that something serious is wrong. You could spend thousands throwing parts at it and never fix it.

I would have to be there to hear it. You may want to have it towed to a shop to get their opinion.
A knocking noise is usually a rod bearing or other internal engine part, and very serious damage can result.

You have one of several things wrong
1- threw a rod = expensive
2- locked the engine up = expensive
3- lost the timing belt or chain = expensive but not as - IF _-- you didn't bend any rods

I hope this kind of helps - as I know no one wants to hear this kind of news.
I hope the best for you but it does sound like major engine problems.

Car just stopped...no check engine light, no oil light, no warning at all it just stopped. i heard a squealing noise, but i didnt hear any lifter tapping or piston slap or any type of knocking, its buggin...


If the motor is hydro locked then it has a coolant leak in the cylinder head or intake. The gm 3.1 and 3.4 are very well known for issue. If the batt is fully charged and the engine will not turn over that probably what it is. It can be a very costly repair so first check the oil if it looks like a milk shake or has white streaks in the oil then sorry but motor done and not worth fixing it.

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.

Sounds like your motor was starved of oil or had an internal malfunction. Possible rod and main bearing damage causing the motor to knock then lock-up. Check your oil level, if there is none or its low, this is the cause of the loud clicking/knocking. Have a mechanic check it out, you may need a new engine or major engine repair!!Hopefully this helps

91 NISSAN MAXIMA , ran out of gas , and put gas in it and it still wont start ,I heard that the factory anti-theft system will shut car down i that. true ? We can get it started ,checked for spark, no...


if it ran out of gas it just may be air locked, you can't just crank the engine turn the key to the run postion for 3 seconds and shut off and do this 7 or 8 times then try starting it. The fuel pump will not pump while cranking it is a fail safe if the car is in a wreck and the pump won't continue to pump gas out and catch on fire. This should fix it for you.

Very loud noice in brakes


its possible that one of the caliper piston has seized.
to fix this remove the wheel and take out the pads and try and force the piston back(it takes some elbow grease), then bleed the brake that has seized if this does not work replace the caliper (breakers yard??)
