I recently put a high mileage 1995 (152k) 360 in a 92 dakota.
Well, it spark knocks some, just going down the road.
If i push it while accelerating 15mph - 65mph , it spark knocks pretty
good and smokes white smoke..
I ASSUME this engine is box stock. ..... it came out of a 1995 1500
4x4 auto. Certainly did not look like a hot rod.
What causes these engines to spark knock??
Its using some oil... I assume the oil seals are gone. I has not shown
any sign of blow by.
My 3.9 v-6 (in another 92 has always knocked a little bit, just
cruising down the road. But DONT when accelerating.
MY 3.9 was using oil until I replaced the oil seals.
Any help with the spark knock issue would be appreciated.
