Knocking Engine


Pull a plug and check to make sure that you put the correct plugs in. If they were the incorrect heat range you can burn off the electrode and it could have got stuck in the valve, causing the knocking sound. Use a long 3/4 extension as a stethoscope to try and locate which side of the engine the sound is comming from. Then do a compression check to find the cylinder with the stuck valve.

I have a 2000 volkswangen jetta vr6 and it has a knocking sound in the top engine need to know if changeing the oil will fix the problem oil look realy thin and smells like gas.


If your oil smells like petrol (gas) this is a big problem. Drain the oil and replace it and the filter. I would take a sample of the oil to a mechanic just to get his opinion. Gas getting into the oil on a modern car (fuel injected) is less common then just burning oil but has been known to happen. Knocking sound is usually crank shaft damage which is not a good prognosis. It is likely if fuel is in there now it will get in there again - Your best chances are to use as heavy weight semi-synthetic oil you can get with the aim that the oil pressure will mean you burn oil in preference to fuel pressure pushing its way into your sump.

Mazda 626 2002 smells like burning rubber


This is not good. Sounds like the heater fan bearing and/or resistor is burning out. Not familiar with your heater fan location, but most will be removeable from engine compartment.

Just remove it and spin it by hand or hook auxillary power to it to test. Some autoparts stores can test it for you. Stuff a rag in the opening to block fumes if this must be driven for parts run.

Check engine light, knocking? PCV Valve?


I have this same vehicle. The "check engine" light warns you that the input from a sensor is not valid. To locate the problem sensor you need to have the fault codes downloaded and interpreted. I am sure your PCV has little to do with this. The burning smell cold be oil from your transaxle seals being thrown up onto the exhaust pipes. The outback is a sophistecated and refined vehicle that requires sophisticated equipment to work on it. If you have engine "knocking" it is likely to be the knock sensor and if this is the case, you need to have it remedied very quickly

The engine is making a really loud knocking noise and the oil light is on. it also smells like something is burning or running hot


Doesn't sound good. Check oil level. Also check for metal in the oil once you pull the dipstick. A loud knocking noise is a sign of a blown engine may be you spun a rod in which case you would need engine replacement or rebuild

Clicking/knocking sound and feel when shifting & smell


first check the clutch hydrolic fluid. If it's low or leaking, it may not disengage the clutch completely causing the disk to drag (and smell) The knocking sounds like you're loosing the thowout bearing and/or possibly the disk (there are cushion springs that may have come out of place). Take it to a transmission shop that does free diagnosis. anything other than fluid-related is going to be pricey.

the smoke was probaly oil burning,the knocking could be from low oil pressure,this could be very bad.check the oil and coolant levels and repost and let me know how they are.if any oil shows on the dipstick smell it and see if it smells burnt.
