Knocking on front end

I have a 96 Ranger 4X4 195,000 miles. I have a knocking sound that occurs occassionally (at least once a day), it sounds like it is located behind the front wheel driver's side. It sounds like someone is hitting the engine with a hammer. The truck does not have to be moving for it to occur and it does not speed up regardless of rpm's or speed of vehicle movement. Any one have any ideas?? Thanks.

Re: Knocking on front end

when you give the car to much gas and your rpms are low does the pinging noise occur? It could possibly by that your luggin your engine and driving with your rpms to low or your losing compression in your cylinders. Sounds like what happen to me!! Possibly your timing belt might be off too. Don't waste your money on a $120 diagnostic, ask someone you can trust about what they think the problem is.
