"pinging" sound on acceleration

I have some "pinging" that kind of sounds like a car that is labor knocking due to bad gas when I accelerate. Could this be the valves? How do you adjjust the valves on the 1300's?

I have same bike but not any problems with valves. I had a shop adjust them on my 10,000 mile service. All is good. I have been running regular gas from day 1. Did you try premium gas?

2003 chrysler concord nocks pings left side


Knocking and pinging are two separate things. "Knocking" usually refers to the sound an engine makes when internal mechanical parts, such as piston rod bearings or connecting rod bearings, begin to wear and cause a deep "knock, knock, knock" sound during engine rotation. "Pinging" refers to the tapping sound you get upon acceleration, either when using fuel that is to loo octane for the vehicle, or when static timing is set too far advanced, or when the cylinder heads are overheating due to clogged water channels or thin oil.
If you are hearing KNOCKING on the left side, it is likely time for an engine rebuild. If you are hearing PINGING, you may need a better grade of fuel, or you are way overdue for either an oil change or a major tune-up.

The engine has a nkockig sound..could this be caused by a bad knock sensor?


No it isnt a knock sensor the knock sensor job is to detect a knock noise and ****** timing. The knock that it is looking for is from octane or fuel or pinging that creates N0X s. A pollution gas. The knocking noise that you are hearing is different. If it is a multiple noise ar a rattling sound that will be the valves. There are other noises like a piston knock this knock is a sharp metallic noise, If the knock occurs only on acceleration that noise is a crankshaft noise. You need to check you oil level and make sure it is corrects. Look at the oil condition do you see silverish or whitish condition,is the oil deep black.

Either your oil needs to be changed but most importantly The clearance in the connecting rod bearing have more clearance then tolerances allow. This could be due in part of low oil pressure. The gauge might show safe pressure but a manual gauge would give an accurate pressure. Hope this helps.
