Horrible engine knock in 1995 toyota celica


Check for oil pressure.Check the compression in each cylinder.
Yank the valve cover to see if the camshaft is actually turning during cranking mode,only.
Disable the fuel pump or disable the spark(fuel disable preferred)
The engine may have "eaten" something it shouldn't.
A valve may be broken off inside the cylinder head.
Usually an exhaust valve.

2007 kawasaki Ninja 250r Cranks but wont startt


It sounds like the float needle valves are lletting gas run into the bowl,in turn running gas into the motor,and fouling the spark plugs. Have you noticed if the oil level seems to be going UP,or the fuel level is going down? Kawasaki motorcycles are prone to leaking needle valves in the carbs for some reason. And the longer it sits,the worse its going to get.Try this,...pull the spark plugs and see if they are wet with fuel.Then,unhook the coils,and spin the motor over with the plugs out.If it shoots raw fuel about a foot out of each or ANY cylinder,then that is your problem. JUST BE SURE TO DISABLE THE COILS BEFORE SPINNING MOTOR OVER,AND DONT BE CLOSE TO THE PLUG HOLES WHEN YOU SPIN IT OVER!!
Good Luck!

Small gas leak on 2005 Honda VTX1300R


I would suspect and look for any cracked or damaged rubber or other flexible type gas line/s from or to the tank, and where they connect to. That would be the 1st most probable location of leaks. Then the tank or carburetor/injectors.

First, what color is the fouling on the plug? Obviously the plug will need to be changed. It almost sounds like there is something mixed in with the gas causing the plug to build up. IUf the bike has been sitting for a long time with the same gas in it - have the gas tank emptied(it needs to be taken off the bike and flushed out) and have the carburetor cleaned too.
