@ksm2me, kim, Noise/vibration could be linked to a few things, engine, transmission, exhaust, various heat shields,various mount's, etc.. Check all fluid levels, if any found low, especially engine oil top up with specified engine oil. If knocking seem's to be there all the time when accelerating, best to discontinue driving until a good local garage/technician can diagnose issue and estimate repair. If you continue driving there is a possibility of catastrophic engine failure which could endanger you or leave you stranded. Better safe then sorry, have it checked ASAP. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Check your oil. If your oil looks like coffee with creamer in it, instead of black coffee. You may have blown a head gasket.

yes that was first thing I did, wasn't it! The knocking almost feels as if somethings loose flopping back and forth but can't see anything loose?


Does it still knock it you accelerate while its in park? If so I'd put it park, engage the parking break, and have someone give it some gas while you examine what's going on under the hood.


If it doesn't knock on park. Can you feel a little pull in the steering wheel?
