I got an infinity 2005 g 35. I'm starting to hear a knocking noise. I don't know if its the engine, It sounds like it's coming from the side somewhere but definitely under the Hood.? Idk


if the knock speeds up with rpm increase then it definitely is the engine. if it is a solid sounding knock that would be bottom end. if it is more of a hollow knock or more like a tick then could be top end...lifters, exhaust leak or check to see if anything is hitting your cooling fan.

Its inside the top end of the motor. There are knock sensor inside the motor. You have to take off the manifold and top half/plate of the motor. Garage charged me 500 bucks to replace a bad sensor. The sensors run 240 bucks.

you need to establish if its bottom end or top end. if bottom end big end bearings have gone then its a big job ( easier to replace engine ) and if its top end ( cam ) then its a mornings job. big difference. hope this helps

Rattleing nose in front of car when excelarting, the more gas given the louder it gets


I have the same car and when she got around 200,000 i had to start running a heavier grade of motor oil. If you have high mileage then the cam support bearings, crankshaft support bearings have excessive oil clearance. Listen to the knock with the hood open. If the sound is a deep low tone knock then it is the lower end of the engine. If the knock is high pitched like a tic tic sound it is usually in the top end. Lower end is where the crankshaft and pistion are located and the top end is where the valves and camshafts are located in that engine. You can take a broom stick and probe around the engine (careful not to touch moving parts) and put it to youe ear with a little presure and you can hear different sections of the engine to see where the knock is the loudest. Kinda like a doctors stefascope. If it is more like a grinding noise it could be a tensioner pulley, idler pulley, alternator bearing, a/c compressor clutch.

Ok I have a 1985 nissan that has a knock coming from the engine and idk what it is? what could be wrong?


If it is knocking sounds like you may have broke a piston rod. I would not drive it because its cheaper to have it fixed now if you keep driving it the rod will most likelt come thru the block then your looking at replacing the whole engine. Good luck

Engine knocks cold ok hot


if its at the top end its pistion slap
if its at the bottem end(of your engine) its a crank shaft bearing.

with out going into extream detail,

a ting sound at the top is a pistion slap.... replace all your pistions posibly over hual the engine.

a dubble knock that gose with rpm but sounds 2 knocks very every fireing of the pistion is a crank bearing..... replace your crank shaft bearings.... all of them b/c metal gose threw an engine extreamly fast and will destroy other beraings. this knock on start up will turn into a knock all the time, then a very louad knock that will end your engines life.

unfortunetly the answer is engine rebuild and fast.
