SOURCE: i hear a knocking noise while driving

Check your outer c/v joints..a torn boot is a dead giveaway for joint failure (boot fails, lets dirt into joint, joint fails) Also since you didn't mention if noise is also preaent standing still, check the exhaust to make sure it's not hitting floor pan anywhere. (most likely the joint though)

SOURCE: Honda GCV160 Engine Won't Start

You should siphon out all the old gas you can. Replace with new gas. Check that the spark plug is good and the air filter is clean. Spray some carb cleaner in the carburetor.. Also, you should check the oil level and change the oil if it is black. If it tries to start after you spray the carb cleaner in but won't keep going then you know the carburetor needs a good cleaning

Your not going to here any knock from the engine the knock sensor detects detonation which is not detectable with the human ear. if you want to test the knock sensor you can tap the side of the block the engine should stumble for a couple of seconds if it does not change then the way the engine runs then the knock sensor is defective or hase buildup iside the engine and you will need to do a top engine clean. if you want instructions on how to do this just post another post to this reply This happens on engines that ave high mileage or acar that runs low grade like regular.

Probably one of your rod bearings is going out and knocking when under load. Get it fixed before it stops completely.

SOURCE: 1996 4.3 w engine knock. Don't hear it cold unless

It sounds like you have a lifter that is sticking or the nut that holds the rocker arm has come loose. In eighter case you need to remove the valve cover to see if its the nut tightten to 20 ft lbs If its the lifter you can try to free it and make it move but to replace it you need to pull the head off Be sure this not an exhust that you are hearing they can sometimes sound similar especialy if the exhust manifold has a small crack in it. That can be repaired with out removeing the manifold

1989 -1990 350 big bear it has a knocking when starting but after a few mins it warms up doesn't seem to knock as how can I fix this

Depends where the knocking is coming from, what sort of knock, how loud it is, what speed and whether it is load and speed dependent.

It is important to have a rough idea of the location or source of the knock in order to decide whether to dismantle or not and if dismantling what to begin checking. Even if you had the patience to make the sound heard with words it would be no substitute for an experienced person hearing it.
Also different people describe noises differently and hear them differently.

Aluminium is a common material used in such engines and it expands about seven times more than steel as it heats up and this is the principle reason why cold engine knocks can fade after warm-up and why some cold engines are silent and are noisier when hot.

Listening through a stethoscope or a large screwdriver is an aid to locating the area of the knock. A load dependent knocking indicates piston or connecting rod problems and if the noise becomes louder and more harsh on load or as the speed increases it signals trouble sooner rather than later

What's the top end knock in my motor that im hearing when revved goes away but at idle yyou hear it this normal?

Hi Todd the following is today's menu:
1. Ticks and Taps in the top end are minor annoying sounds that usually signals a failed lifter or valves need adjusting.
2. Knocks in the top end are serious noises that usually signals a piston, wrist pin, or upper rod bushing no longer wants to play with the other children and you need a top end overhaul.
3. Knocks in the bottom end signals ***** is at your doorstep and you need to make financial arrangements for a complete engine overhaul. Good luck and have a nice day.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

You may have damaged the engine. So that being said either a bad rod bearing or other issue may be something needing to pull the engine. How is the oil pressure. A rod knock is east to hear. To faster the rpms the worse the sound. Rebuild or replace.

Did not say what year is the Accord. On my 1997 Accord, it was a valve adjustment. Then finally, a new set of spark plugs that finally did the work. Had two incorrect plugs and were firing or had difficulty of firing up.

Washing machine is working fine but has started making a real loud noise when spinning doesn't matter what speed or cycle it has always been real quite only had washer 3 years does not knock or seem out of...

As washing machines age some of the bearings and seals can begin to wear. After 3 years this wear my cause some noise but will not harm the operation of the appliance. Occasionally debris may become lodged around the drum. Visually check the drum for any lodged clothing, coins, plastic, etc. If you feel confident enough, remove the cover on the washing machine and check the drain for large debris.
If all else fails, installing an anti-vibration pad can lessen the amount of vibration/noise that you hear. Basically, even a small amount of vibration noise like you are describing can be amplified when it transfers to the floor of your laundry room. Try installing a set of small rubber anti-vibration pads like Silent Feet and you might be pleasantly surprised by the improvement.
If the noise gets worse or changes to a thumping or knocking, call you appliance technician or let me know. That may be the sign of something more serious, but I wouldn't be worried right now.

Loud engine knock sounds like theconnecting rods in a 3.5L v-6 2002 trooper

If the engine knock is coming from deep inside the engine, the I agree, the rod is knocking.
If the sound is coming from closer to the top, it could be a valve lifter or push rod you are hearing. This isn't as bad, they last longer and synthetic oil or oil treatment helps.
If this doesn't happen all the time, if it's occasional or you hear a pinging noise, you could just have a bad knock sensor.

Take off the lower panel. Inspect the shocks too see if they are damaged. If they are OK turn the wash basket by hand if the knock is heard then most likely you have a broken wash basket.
