My car started making a knocking noise after I gunned it pulling out onto the highway, why?

Asked by Dec 08, 2014 at 04:28 PM about the 2007 Suzuki SX4 Base AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It only makes the knocking nice
when I need to shift from one gear
to another.

The engine will shift due to torque when the throttle is released. You may have lost an exhaust hanger and part of the exhaust may be hitting a cross member, frame, or floor boards when the engine shifts.

I believe it's a gas octane problem. Under a load it knocked. Maybe buy gas from a better station or go up to the next pump.
