Knocking sound in engine when startin cold engine


Sounds like car has been overheated and has a collapsed piston skirt. This will cause piston slap until piston heat up and expand. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Engine is knocking needing to know anything and everything that could cause this. We just replaced the transmission a week ago and we have an O2 sensor out.


Engines can make many different noises and people will describe them as knocks, pings, rattles or thumps. A true "knock" is caused by rod or main bearings hitting against the crankshaft. The general cause of that is either too much space between the bearing and crankshaft or insufficient oil pressure to maintain the distance between the bearing and crankshaft. Sometimes you can use a heavier grade oil so that the oil doesn't leak out of the bearing space so quickly. If you're currently using 5 W 15, go to a 10 W 30 or maybe even a 15 W 50. If you can't make the noise go away with that, either the bearings are too worn or it's a different problem. If the engine has less than a couple hundred thousand miles, the only reason for bearings to go bad would be inadequate maintenance.

Other problems that can result in noises like that are:

Piston slap. That's when the skirt (lower part) of the piston is slightly worn and is enough smaller than the cylinder that the skirt "pops" from one side to the other as the engine runs. It's more of an annoyance than a real problem, especially since piston slap typically goes away as the engine warms up a little. It typically takes just a few seconds to go away. If it's piston slap don't worry about it until the engine is rebuilt. Piston slap is quite common among many of the GM 350's, especially in engines that go short distances a lot or don't get adequate maintenance.

Fuel "pinging". That's when the fuel ignites too quickly and causes a sound like something rattling around inside the engine when you step on the accellerator. Use a fuel octane booster or change the engine timing.

Hydraulic lifter noises sounds more like a tapping sound and is usually caused by inconsistent oil changes

What causes piston slap?


a common cause is carbon on the top of the piston or on the skirt, this makes the piston tilt from side to side under power and causes noise, the other is a worn piston or a cylinder that is not honed to the right size and piston can move excess, another is a cracked piston

When I first start my truck in the morning the rattling is probably the worst. As the pipe heats up the noise subsides. It appears to be on the inside near the catalytic converter everything else is tight.


Possibly an exhaust o-ring gasket leaking.

Or the rattling I have in my 02 silverado caused by "Piston Slap" GM motor defect. Google search piston slap for more on that. Mine has been doing it since almost new.

Here is the rule and GM's official stand, if the noise goes away after a few minutes of running that is ok, if it is loud all the time you have a problem, there are many blogs out there about these piston slap noises, I have one in my own car, a 96 Corvette, GM said not to worry it will not cause any damage, just annoying on a car that cost $48,000.
