No, it will not cause the engine to knock.
No it will not.
As you did not say which vehicle this can only be a general answer Unlikely that a faulty coil would cause an engine to knock. Very possible it would cause bucking, if the coil is failing there would be a lack of spark. This would cause bucking/missfire, which may cause the engine to shake on it's mountings possibly causing a knock from contact with the vehicle frame.
If the knock sensor failed the CEL (Check Engine Light) would be illuminated and the engine may "ping" or "spark knock" under load. Serious "spark knock" can damage the engine if allowed to continue.
No. It only senses engine vibration/knock.
you blew your engine dude... that sucks sorry
A bad knock sensor would illuminate the check engine light and allow the engine to ping (spark knock). The engine doesn't shift, the transmission shifts.
Sounds like a rod bearing. Time for a rebuild job.
Same as any engine. If your gear shift is moving as well it will possibly be your engine mounts. If its been happening when cornering check your drive shafts.
Worn spark plugs would cause mis-firing or non firing cylinders, both are no good for the engine, replacing the plugs may stop the knock (Could also be a different problem) But you should replace spark plugs as soon as possible.
check the oil level it may not have had enough oil put back in it.
Generally when your flubbing your duggan, you should put some oil in that mawfuc*er.
if the engine is knocking you could have bad support bushings for the mouter mounts or your engine could be warped do to excessive heat wear
yes absolutely, just happend to me on a rebuilt engine, with less than 2hrs runnjing time.
No. Sounds like the catalytic converter is going bad. Rotten egg smell is a sign
YES, It sure can but I don't think you would notice it that much. It would help us to know the year,engine size and what you are working on.
An engine knock ia almost always very serious. Stop drivng this car and take it to a professional. Not a repair for a novice.
Poor performance, poor fuel mileage, spark knock (aka ping), hard starting, engine run on, to name a few.
First thing that you should do is check and see what your oil level is. If you have over filled the the vehicle with oil this will cause the engine to knock, and cause further damage to your engine. Make sure that vehicle is on level ground and check the oil dip stick. The oil lubricating the dip stick should not be beyond the full mark. If it is remove the drain plug from the oil pan to bring the oil to the proper level.
If a knock sensor was bad, the check engine light would be illuminated and the code(s) set would indicate so.
There are several different reasons that an engine will knock. Unfortunately, the most common cause for an engine knock, is when the connecting rods and the pistons have more play than they should, causing them to move around in the cylinders. I would recommend taking it to a mechanic and having them listen to it and get their opinion. Try not to drive it too much before getting it checked out, as this can cause your engine severe damage and possibly leave you stranded on the side of the road.
to much boost, to low of octane fuel, carbon buildup on pistons, ignition timing is to far advanced. take your pick
Could be many reasons. If there is an check engine light, have the code pulled with a ODB2 scanner from any local garage. Reference that code with what it means and you have a better idea where to look to solve the problem.
You would probably hear a spark knock or pinging under acceleration or load. Check engine light may come on also.
there may be two knock sensors on that 4.3L engine. One would be on the back of the passenger side cylinder head and the other would be on the drivers side, lower engine block area.
