Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when it starts it makes knocking sound . then push the gas and it gets real
loud . but no nose when idle

1 Answer


The motor is done. The bearings or crank or both are worn. Since it's been knocking, putting in new bearings won't fix it because the knocking wears the crank.
