If water ran over the hood of your car after draining the water out of the oil what would cause the supercharged engine to make a loud knocking?

Hey Scott==The water probably entered the engine while it was running and since water won't commpress, it probably bent a rod and it is causing the piston to hit the crankshaft. Good Luck, Joe

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.

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

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