Ethanol in the fuel causes knocking in older high octane motorcycles. If it is fuel related , you will have to find non-oxygenated premium for classic cars to cure the problem.

My 1984 gl1200a goldwing has a rattle in motor when it is accelerated quickly when in nutral and rattles when riding above 3200-3400 rpm changed oil cut filter apart no metal in it sounds like spark k


1. add an octane booster to the fuel or try some high octane fuel (93 or above) and see if it stops rattling. Also make sure that the engine is not being lugged (throttled hard at low engine speeds) while in driving. If the rattling goes away or decreases check the fuel quality or, it probably has some engine issues like carbon build-up in the engine, overheating, or the timing may be off, or the engine is not running on all 4 cylinders.

I have a 2000 ford mustang v6 I was putting 89 octane gas in it. my manual said to burn 87 octane so i'm burnning 87 now .but when I accellerate I get a knocking, rattling sound took it to a ford dealer...


Humm, give it some time. there are upper cylinder cleaners, but I worry about converter damage, and oxygen sensor damage. The lower the octane, the hotter and more masssive the burn, exactly backwards from what you would think, but higher octane is slower burn and av.gas is really, really slow.
Ford has had slow to start issues that traced back to drivers using too high octane....

Still, if it keeps pinging, you may need to run higher than spec octane.
I would have thought that your car would have knock sensor that would trim this issue...

My 95 deville makes a rattling sound from the engine compartment after the engine is warm


Is this during idle or while driving ? My older GM cars were prone to collapsed hydraulic valve lifters....usually from wear or lack of oil pressure to the lifters while idling.
If you hear this only while driving or accellerating.... it's likely a spark knock sound (Engine internal damage likely if you leave this situation unchecked) It may be a 'timing' problem. Get help soon !

What fuel should I put in my 2003 harley sportster


Technically, it will run on any octane gasoline you put in it but it runs best on high test. If your bike's engine rattles (spark knocks) when accellerating under a load, use higher octane fuel.

Chain rattling noise


Locate the knock sensor on your engine. Quick test on them is to tap on the engine with a small hammer near (not on) the sensor. If engine rpms do not change then likely the sensor is bad. Likely what you are hearing (if it is coming from the engine) is detonation. If the noise is elsewhere, it could be a bad chain in the transfer case, but that would need to be looked at to evaluate the problem further.

I have 1998 Infinti Q45t 4.1L V8, It has 202,750 still runs great except you can hear little knocking sound when idling. Is that bad if you hav knocking sound from engine?? So do you think that we can fix...


a knocking sound in an engine is never good. with a high mileage engine things start to get worn. so bearing clearances get larger and things begin to knock and rattle. i would try running a higher viscosity oil than is recommended it might help with the knock. but truthfully it probably needs to be rebuild or a whole new motor installed

Air Conditioner Problems


Your bearings in the compressor could be going bad.Try accellerating with your air conditioner on off. If the rattling sound does not occur, replace your compressor.

04 Endeavor rattling noise


I had the same problem! I crawled underneath the car and discovered that a heat shield on the exhaust header pipe was corroded and rattling against the exhaust pipe. (Before the muffler)
I removed the portion and clamps and solved the problem. Give it a try.
