A few years back, I had a knocking noise in my engine. It started one day and I discovered it was my 3rd spark plug. It had come loose in the plug body. After I replaced it, the engine sounded normal. This was about 8 years ago. Never jump to conclusions about knocking noise until you look things over throughly. By the way, mine was a '97 4 cylinder.

I just drained the oil (no shavings at all), put 10w-40 and some risilone engine treatment. Same exact results. At this point, with it running, I start to pull spark plug wires 1 at a time. Same noise for all, except for the third one. I pull the 3rd and it's quiet and no knocking at all. So I know the problem is from this cylinder. Turn it off, and check the plug. The plug was tight, as checked before, but when I took the actual plug out and check the gap, I notice the plug is broken. The actual plug is rotating freely within the nut. I have no idea how this happened considering this is an OEM Denso plug that was put it in brand new this past fall. So I take one of the extra plugs that the truck had in it, check the gap, put it in, and just like magic the knock is completely gone.

I'm really not sure how the plug got messed up, but I'm VERY VERY happy and relieved that I found the problem, and it was a cheap spark plug.

So long live the 2.7! lol

Thank you all that replied to this thread!

I'll still bring it to the mechanic to adjust the belt tensioner, install the fuel filter and put a new lug nut stud on it.
