3.0 Duratec '96, slight problems
I have a question for all of you, when it is warm, it seems like there is hardly any low end torque up till 2800 RPM, it still has quite a bit, I could make the tires sqeal a little off the line if I wanted to, but it just does not have very much power, now when it is cold, it has the low and torque and once I pass 2800 RPMs it is smooth and not the sudden power increase like when it is warm.
I know engines perform better with cold air, but would it do this?
Also, when going from light throttle to maybe about half, I hear this knocking sound, kinda sounds like a cross between a knock and rattling keys on a keychain?
It is faint and only at low RPMs. Is it knocking? It still does it with higher octane too.
