Knocking on 1995 sebring lxi coupe 2.5 v6

Asked by Mar 04, 2012 at 04:36 PM about the 1995 Chrysler Sebring 2 Dr LXi Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so about a few months ago, I was driving down the freeway and my car went completly out of gear, no prior issues before this. the car over heated and I parked it and got it towed. the knock is coming from what seems to be the passanger side back lower area. and under near the oil pan.
once I got it home I noticed there was a steady load knock. the knock was not load while in park but once it goes into drive or rev it gets loader. when I give it gas the sound goes away, the idle is irratic up and down but I think thats because of the leak in the egr valve. could that cause a knock? So far I have already had 3 diffrent people come start replaceing what they thought it was and the noise is still there. replaced sparkplugs, wires , oil is clean altho a small amount of white resadue  in the oil pan but there is none in the rad. replaced all the bearings , pulled off all the tentioners and pulleys and when I started it up the sound was gone. but onces the belts were back on it was doing it agian. the sound goes away when I am driving and comes back when I let off the gas and starts to stall. agian I think the stall is egr but the knock is coming from the lower end.  this car does not have a knock sensor. comprestion on the car is correct, there does not seem to be any real problem.. but there is that knock and it was never there before. anyone have any ideas on what it could be?

Might sound like your differential drive is busted, had the same problem with my 1995 chrysler.

ok, I will have the seal checked , ive already put in premium with no change. and I'll look into the differential drive, but its front wheel and is a married trans so im not sure , that could explain it coming out of gear. i"ll let you know how it goes
