Yes, if a sufficient quantity of gasoline went through it. Knock in the engine from detonation is going to be the main problem, which could ultimately render the engine useless.

knocking as in spark knock? or engine knock? spark knock is adjusted through a knock sensor via ignition timing. eng. knock is due to brg. knock as in low oil pressure or sluge in engine or just a tired motor
