What is causing engine knocking during acceleration in high gear with standard fuel and correct timing on a 94 Park Avenue Ultra?

Timing is controlled by the PCM, and is not adjustable. You might have a problem with either a plugged gas filter, egr system malfunctioning, or induction problem (leaking tube going from the MAF/MAP to the throttle body. Also check the PCV valve. In addition, carbon buildup. Most supercharged vehicles require premium fuel only. Also, engine pre-detonation (knock) is sometimes a symptom of high exhaust back pressure. You might have a muffler shop check the back pressure in your exhaust. It could be a plugged up catalyst.

You have spelt it correctly in your question. Acceleration is correct.

Its still acceleration. In 4th grade my science teacher told me that acceleration can be going, stopping, and turning. Correct, slowing is negative acceleration, turning is vectored acceleration

That is the correct spelling of the word "causing" (initiating, creating an effect).

The correct way to write 95 in standard form is 9.5 × 101

Write down the equation. force = mass × acceleration.Rearrange the equation. acceleration = force⁄massPut in the values. acceleration = 3,000N⁄ 2,000kgWork out the answer and write it down. acceleration = 1.5m/s2
