Asked in Ford Taurus, Check Engine Light
2001 ford Taurus engine light came on sounds like marbles but it still starts and can drive it has plenty of power?
"Sounds like marbles" (!!) This does not sound good... Have your car professionally inspected for the cause of the sounds. The engine light may, or may not have anything to do with the sounds. But you should also get the trouble codes that triggered the Check Engine Light and those will give you good information about what also is going on with your engine. I also have to ask: have you checked the oil lately? See "Related Questions" below for more ...

How 2 buy a bio diesel engine 4 a car?
There's no such thing, really. It sounds to me like you want to burn bio-diesel, however. What you need is a diesel engine. If you've already got a diesel engine in your car, then you can fill 'er up with bio whenever you want. If your car is a gas burner, you're in for a very long and difficult project. If the latter, I'd recommend buying a diesel car. ...

Asked in Ford F-350
Can you put straight pipes on a diesel?
It would be like putting stacks on it, like tractor trailers. Straight piping a diesel is gonna be ridiculously loud, cause my duramax is. It sounds really good, plus it helps out the motor, especially when you are towing cause it lowers engine temps ...
Asked in BMW
Why does a BMW E46 gasoline engine tick like a diesel engine?
First, is it a tick or more of a clatter? (I know, I know, not trying to slit hairs here, but its important) A light tick could be anything from insufficient oil level to excessive valve lash (not sure if this is an older pushrod or newer hydraulic lifter engine, sorry). If its a deeper clatter (more what I think of as "diesel" sounds) then it could range from something as simple as premature ignition timing (spark knock), which could just...

Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Ford Transit
Why does the engine light stay on in my Ford Transit van diesel 1999 model?
Sounds like the Check Engine Light (CEL), also known as the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL). These engines have a number of sensors in them. When a sensor returns data the computer determines to be invalid or incorrect, it determines that there is a fault with how the engine is operating, assigns a Data Trouble Code (DTC) to the issue, and illuminates the CEL. To find out what the fault is, and OBD2 scan tools needs to be connected to read the...

Asked in Combustion Engines
Is a knock in the engine harmful to the engine?
it depends what is knocking, there are so many parts on the engine that can do this. check the belt assembly for sounds, that could be it. but if it isnt then it is some internal parts, it which case hopefully your vehicle has sensors, it is probably not harmful unless your service engine soon light comes on, if that happens, then take it somewhere to get it trouble coded, autozone is free. ...

Asked in Mechanical Engineering
When gases are used as fuel in green engine then on which cycle green engine works?
That question makes no sense. Green is a very broad term used to indicate an individuals opinion about the efficiency or even moral character of just about anything. Most engines run on a cycle that can be modeled in thermodynamics as an otto cycle (typically using gasoline). Some engines run on diesel cycles. Every engine company on the planet uses the word green as a descriptive term of their engine because it sounds a heck of a lot better than brown. ...
