Noise in engine when I step on gas


Asked by Sep 25, 2016 at 03:09 AM about the 2010 Ford Fusion SEL V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I step on the gas, I am getting a
knocking sound. And before you ask, I just
got the Oil changed. When driving down the
road, it will make this noise till 2,000-2,500
RPM then quiet down. Is this a connecting
rod issue or possibly a lifter issue?

Each gear shift it will do this till about 2,500RPM


Try adding some Lucas Engine Oil Stabilizer to oil since you just had the oil changed remove same amount of oil as in Lucas bottle do not want to overfill.


Too late, It threw a rod about 2 hrs. ago
