Can an oil pan drain gasket cause a engine to start knocking and cause a good engine to go bad if placed on the car wrong?

It could be the cause of the knock only if the gasket was bad and leaked out almost all the oil.

Cause low pressure oil pump

When the fuel in an engine cylinder ignites prematurely or unevenly to cause power fluctuations and a "knocking" sound. usually occurs when an engine is very how or improperly timed.

Engine knocking can be caused by numerous things. Having the incorrect spark plugs, carbon deposits on the cylinder walls, and being low on engine oil may all cause a knocking sound.

Not sure what your asking exactly. But I will tell you this about knocking in Montanas. I have seen a few of them that will start sucking oil into the combustion chamber through a leaking intake manifold gasket. The motor goes dry enough to cause a knocking on the lower end of the engine. End of motor! Check your oil!!!

A seized gear can cause a knocking sound on a 1987 Nissan 5 speed transmission. A blown gasket can also cause this sound.

I blown head gasket can cause an engine miss which one cause a rough idle.

can you elaborate? engine noise? stationary/moving? ticking, tapping or a definite knocking?

User Avatar

Yes, fouled spark plugs can cause engine shaking, and loss or power. I'm not sure about knocking but I'd guess that too.

Having a bad rod bearing could cause a truck to make a loud knocking noise and shake when driving at high speeds. The engine having a coolant leak or an engine timing problem could also cause the knocking noise.

No, knocking in an engine is normally more serious than a gasket leak. Depending on how heavy the knock sound is it could be the Big Ends bearings need changing or it if its fainter than that it could be the timing is out. Either way it can cause real damage to the engine and should be repaired as quickly as possible. Have seen exhaust manifold gasket leaks that are described as a 'knock' by inexperienced persons. Normally a knock is piston connecting rod bearings that have gone out.

A bad harmonic balancer can cause a knocking noise. The harmonic balancer doesn't actually produce the noise, but it can cause the noise in the engine.

User Avatar

no installig a starter wrong will not cause engine knocking. all that will do is maybe short fuses, heat up wires, ruin your starter, or melt wires. knocking isn't electrical it is mechanical like lifters, pistons, valves, things like that

The most common cause of a blown head gasket is an over heating engine. Low coolant or coolant not circulating through the engine causes the engine to heat up and the gasket to fail.

User Avatar

Yes, that is possible. A blown head gasket will destroy the engine.

User Avatar

Yes, if the radiator is clogged and the engine overheats. The main cause of head gasket failure is the engine overheating.

The most common cause is an engine that overheated.

Hard to say. However, if the "rubber gasket" you're talking about is the center bushing on your harmonic balancer, that could throw your Harmonic balancer out of balance. This could easily make it shake to beat the band which in turn could be the knocking noise you're hearing. I suggest you get it looked at immediatly. If that is what happened, your engine won't survive long.

It may be map sensor but engine knocking cause of another reason. You should check your spark plug , I.S.C valve , Injector and engine Compressor. thanks It may be map sensor but engine knocking cause of another reason.

No, but it can cause severe engine damage if you keep running the engine.

User Avatar

No, a normal tune up cannot cause a blown head gasket. A blown head gasket normally is caused by an engine overheating or by a defect in the gasket or head. If it happened right after a tune-up that is just a coincidence.

User Avatar

Overheating an engine can cause the engine to see up resulting in a complete engine failure. Overheating the engine can cause the head gasket to fail.
