Car Engine Knocking: What Does It Mean?

If you've ever been driving and heard a knocking sound coming from your engine, you may have wondered what was wrong. Don't worry, you're not alone! A lot of people have this same question. In this blog post, we will explain what engine knocking is and what it means for your car.

Engine knocking is a knocking or pinging sound that can occur when the air/fuel mixture in the engine's cylinders is detonating in more than one place at a time. This can happen for a number of reasons, such as low octane fuel, deposits on the piston or valves, or incorrect ignition timing.

If you hear an engine knocking, it's important to take action right away. If left unaddressed, engine knocking can lead to serious engine damage. We recommend for you to make an appointment and we can properly diagnose the reason your engine is knocking.

We hope this blog post has helped you understand a little bit more about engine knocking and what it means for your car. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us and we'll be happy to help.
