Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Engine System

Problem:

Engine knocking / pinging.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Solution:

An engine that knocks/pinges, causing a "pinging" reverberation and sound, is not only annoying, but also potentially harmful to your vehicle, especially if it is severe.   The following may be probable causes of your vehicle's problem that you should consider checking:

  • The octane of the fuel you may be using in your vehicle may not be appropriate;

  • The temperature of the engine may be abnormally high due to a cooling system failure;

  • The engine vacuum may be suffering from a leak;

  • The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve may be damaged;

  • The timing of the ignition may be detrimentally off;

  • There may be carbon build-up in the engine;

  • The engine's chambers, particularly the spark advance chamber, may be damaged; or

  • The mechanical advance weights may be damaged.

Any one of the above can be the cause of your vehicle's problem, so it would be best to pay attention to the above probable causes when attempting to diagnose and fix the problem.
