Knocking in rear passenger side after starting my 95 Ford Contour 2.0

35

Asked by Jul 08, 2015 at 09:31 PM about the 1995 Ford Contour 4 Dr GL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Occasionally (meaning not more than once a week) when I start my car I hear a knocking
sound in the rear of my car on the passenger's side. It goes away within 5-10 seconds. It
doesn't last long enough for me to get out and see where it's coming from. Anybody else
having this problem or know what it might be?

This may just be ,the ecm is loading up fuel when you start it,making it throw raw fuel in the exhaust,giving you a little tapping sound,if engine light is on,you may need to check the o2 sensors,
