3 Things That Can Cause A Car Engine To knock

Car parts are subject to deterioration and degradation over time. Some are readily dealt with, but others should never occur. There are certain sections of a car engine that should never make a loud noise. Even if everything goes according to plan, you could wind up having to have your car scrapped if something goes wrong.

In the minds of many car owners, this is the worst news they could possibly hear. Let's take a look at some of the things that cause an engine to stutter or knock, and leave us stranded, as we choose the more prudent alternative of prevention.

1. According to, Having too little oil in your car's engine can cause it to make a noise, as it needs a certain amount to perform properly. If your engine is running low on oil, metal parts will scrape, slide, and rub against each other, eventually causing your engine to shut down.

We recommend that you inspect your engine for leaks, change your oil periodically to remove bad oil, and most importantly, don't ever run out of oil.

2. Due to the obvious combustion that occurs when the car is moving, every engine has the ability to heat up. In order to keep your engine from overheating, you'll need a well-designed cooling system.

Make sure your temperature gauge is operating properly so that you can quickly identify any problems. Make sure your sealant is in good operating order; if it isn't, your engine may overheat.

3. The air and fuel mixture is compressed by the engine's pistons. The engine will be damaged if water enters the mixture, bending, breaking, or blowing out the engine's openings. Hydrolocking is a common problem in modern cars since the inlet or exhaust valves are located near the bottom of the engine.

Is it bad to drive a car in a flood? Yes! It's not worth the risk. Take a another path, wait for the flooding to subside, or cancel your appointment if you observe a flooded area.
