mattkilco@yahoo.comIt may be a "popping sound" or a "knocking sound", both can be interpreted very differently. I am not an expert, but if it is a "knocking sound", you may have a "warped head". This would mean you need to replace the head. It will cost a good penny or two, but if you enjoy the van and wish to keep it, a few hundred dollars is an easy price.

Now, if it is actually a "popping sound", it depends on where it is coming from, if it is constant, whether it is fast, slow, or variable. This could be numerous things. The most common, if it is quick and steady, like a "ptht ptht", then you might want to get your oil checked/changed. Another option is to check your spark plugs. Most often than not, an old vehicle that has not had a tune up will lose the life of a few spark plugs, this will cause your engine to "miss"( leaving a "gas pocket"). Or maybe the distributer cap/rotor is bad, not allowing a spark to the plugs themselves. Check the plugs, wires, cap, rotor.

I hope I have been of some service.

GOOD LUCK, Matt
