It is POSSIBLE, but highly unlikely unless you had prior problems with the timing. I would have it checked out by a mechanic as it could be any number of things.

It retards / slows the engine timing up when it detects an engine knock / pining noise like bad fuel are valve noise.

Does the engine on a 2003 impala knock in the top of the motor if the knock sensor is bad?

The knock sensor just advances and retards the engine timing only. If there is a noise in the engine then you have engine are valve train problems. The knock sensor will not make the engine knock.

Knocking noise when accelerating?

The knocking noise is commonly called spark knock. The knock can be called by the engine timing not being set correctly, or using gas that has too low of an octane for the engine.

Where is the Knock Sensor located on a Chrysler Town and Country?

It is located on the side of the engine block. The purpose of the knock sensor is to retard engine timing When there is an engine noise. It is a rare case that one ever goes bad.

Where is the knock sensor located on a 1996 Plymouth Voyager?

It is located on the engine block. A knock sensor will very seldom give a problem. It detects engine noises and retards to timing. If you have a code then you need to find the noise and repair it.

How do you repair the timing on a 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 3.1 liter V6?

You can't, its done by the computer if you have a knock noise, replace the knock sensor. its locate on the back of the engine near the alternator.

On a 94 mercury tracer with a 1.9L engine if the timing belt slipped a tooth will there be engine noise?

No, there will not be engine noise, but you may notice a decrease in engine performance. The 1.9 liter engine is a freewheeling engine which is not damaged by incorrect camshaft timing or even by a broken timing belt.

Have a 97 Olds 88 replaced MAP sensor and new gaskets for coolant leak everything was great. Now about 250 miles later the engine has a loud ticking knocking noise. Would this be a knock sensor?

The knock sensor is exactly what it says. It senses any knock or ticking in the engine and retards the timing. The knock sensor is not the problem, the knocking is. Go to a repair shop and have it diagnosed.

What is knock in a car engine?

The noise ie engine due to bad quality of petrol

What is the noise inside your timing cover?

Engine tappets

Why does a car do clicking sound in the engine when doing effort?

It is called "pinging". This happens when the ignition timing is out. The timing needs to be set by a mechanic to eliminate this noise. I would help also if we knew what year, make and model vehicle you have. Depending on that, it could be a knock sensor gone bad.

What is the tapping noise in your engine 2005 Nissan Quest?

Most likely cause-valvetrain noise, check oil level, pressure, also possible engine knock. If you have a knock sensor, mil should be illuminated

What indicates worn bearings?

Low oil pressure, engine knock / noise.

How do you tell a difference between an engine knock and a valve tap?

An engine "knock" will become more pronounced when engine is labored (climbing a hill) Valve noise will remain the same under stress

There is a noise that sounds like it is coming from the Timing case in 1998 Sunfire GT what could it be?

AnswerI think this engine uses a timing chain, but I am not 100% positive. Regardless, the noise you are hearing is either a timing chain that is loose or a belt. I would suspect that the timing chain is loose. Have this looked at ASAP.It could also be the timing tensioner also.

Can a bad knock sensor produce too much noise like hard tapping?

Year, make and model would help, but Unless the knock sensor were actually loose (not bolted down or broken) and "banging" off some other part, but this is a very unlikely scenario. Knock sensors are design to detect exactly that, engine knocks. There purpose is to have the vehicle's computer reduce timing, adjust fuel ratio and/or possibly shut down the engine completely if the sensor detects a knock that could result in engine damage.

How do you tell a difference between an engine knock and a valve tap on a '97 Silverado 350?

An "engine knock" will be more noticable when engine is labored (climbing a hill etc.) Valve noise will remain constant

When do you change a timing belt Ford Aerostar?

You didn't specify which engine you have. The 3.0L engine has a timing chain, not a belt. If it isn't making excessive noise, then leave it alone.

Does the Nissan Sentra 2004 have a timing chain or a timing belt?

For longer life with less maintenance, the Sentra engine uses a timing chain instead of a cheaper, but quieter, timing belt. You don't notice the extra noise generated by the timing chain.

Serious engine knock or valve train noise. Have this looked into by a pro.

Where is the knock sensor located on a 1996 Crown Victoria?

It is located on the side of the engine block. If you have a code for a knock sensor and you have a noise in the engine, it will set the code. That does not mean that the sensor is bad. They very rarely give problems.
