How to avoid engine knock and pinging

So what exactly is engine knock and how dangerous is it? What causes engine knock and how can it be avoided?

You may notice a knocking or rattling noise from your engine or a sudden loss of power under full throttle.

Immediately back off the throttle and only use low rpm engine speeds until you can get the engine investigated.

The chances are that you are suffering from a condition known as “engine knock”.

Benefits and drawbacks of engine water injection systems

You’ve finished tuning up your engine but you find that at full throttle the engine splutters or stalls. When you get the car on a diagnostic you find that the knock sensor is kicking in to protect the engine.

Engine knock is a condition where the fuel inside the engine ignites prematurely and occurs within an engine running at high compression. (It can also be caused by other factors including low octane/poor quality fuel or hot spots within the engine.)

High performance sports exhausts systems.

TorqueCars will review sports exhausts and exhuast design as they are very popular modifications, but sadly many mistakes are made.

The job of the exhaust is to break up the sound pulse from the engine, muffling the sound and allowing the exhaust gases to escape efficiently.

Vernier pulleys

TorqueCars give advice and tips on using vernier pulleys setting them up and how changes to the pulley can alter the power band. With a vernier pulley you have the ability to control the advance or retard on your cam timing and move the power band around.
