An expert would have to hear the sound for a diagnosis. It may be your main bearings are knocking. If it also happens if you lift your foot sharply OFF the accelarator, then that's a sure thing. - Only way to check for sure is to fit an oil pressure gauge.

IT is your CV Joints which is making this noise.

you may have a rod knocking and you need to take it to a shop asap

In many card and token games a player is required to knock the table when he's down to one token/card The player so doing is said to be 'knocking' A gasoline motor is said to be 'knocking' when the air/gas mix is too lean Knocking can also be criticising, using a knocker of a door, declaring an auction over Knocking off: finishing work for a break, or the day: making a hasty job of: robbing Knocking up: waking: making pregnant: making hasty job of Knocking over: robbing Knocking down: to assault and to beat to the ground

you probably threw a rod out, get it to a mechanic ASAP or you will have more problems.

When you accelerate. you are putting presure on the main engine barrens. if they are going bad. You will hear this knocking sound. I don't know how many miles you have on this engine. But that's what it sounds like. But that's not all that can make this sound. You will have to tell more about it and when it started. Did it just start all at once? or did it start and then get louder?

With out hearing it, It is hard to say whats wrong. But the most common noise like that would probley be a ROD knocking. Time for engine overhaul.

my 1995 BMW 325i is making a knocking noise after i replace the water pump

Where is the noise coming from? If its from the fenders or wheels is a much different problem than if its coming from the transaxle.

It's according to where the noise is coming from if it's the rods knocking due to low oil it will get faster because they move up and down and move faster when the motor gets faster.

probably a universal joint. Or a cv joint depending on what is applicable to your car

when we accelerate vehicle the supply of fuel gets increased .. Then inside the combustion chamber all the charge can't burn in such case so phenomena of knocking takes place.. So the sound can be heared.

balljoint or control arm. Or possibly CV joints had the same problem with a 92 prelude

get a new trany or rebildit cuz its going out unless the knocking is from moter it might be timing

if youre getting alot of white smoke from your tailpipe and if you hear a knocking noise coming from the top end of the motor could either be a rocker arm or a valve if it is knocking and the valve is bad the knocking will speed up as you accelerate valve are cheap and easy to replace anymore questions email me at

i don't know if it helps, but my '99 legacy outback was making a knocking sound. turned out that the oring on the brake caliper pin had worn out, and the pin was kind of knocking around.

It sounds like your CV (Constant Velocity) joints are worn and need to be replaced

There could be loosened internal mounts (connecting rods, pistons, pins, crankshafts or other related parts) in the compressor causing the banging or knocking noise. A simple call to a technician should resolve the issue.

Bad axle maybe? Does it do it when you turn one way or another? Check to see if the cv boots are torn.
