Foretrax engine knock

4034 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Helmut
I have a 1999 ForeTrax 450 ES. Last winter I had it on the ice and reving it kind of high. It shut down and when I checked the oil it was really low. It runs, but now it has an engine knock/ping. What damage do you suppose I inflicted on it ?

Thanks for the reply. Now that you mention it, I'm not sure if it's a ticking or a knock. I'm going to have to run it and try to get a better idea. I guess either way I'm tearing this thing down however.
Well it seems to be more of a ticking/pinging kind of sound. Reminds me of a rattling heat sheild type noise. Consistent with engine rpms and revs.
