Knocking noise

Asked by Apr 06, 2017 at 11:40 AM about the 2006 Dodge Stratus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving down the road and all of a sudden
started making a knocking noise and lost power
then stalled or died on me. I checked the oil and
there was almost nothing in there so I put some
more oil in and crunk it back up. It sounds fine
while idling but when I push the gas the knocking
sound comes back so wtf is happening? Maybe my
spark plug got burned up and that cylinder ain't
firing idk need some suggestions

And ya knocking gets worse with speed


Or....maybe you ran it low on oil and ruined the engine? How much oil did you have to add when you noticed it was low?

4 q

But yes it almost had no oil

But if the engine did ruin from no oil being in it what would it take to fix
