Knocking noise

Hi:

I have a 2011 Sonata. Recently, I have heard a faint knocking sound when I'm in reverse. It doesn't do it all the time. When I took it into the dealer, it would not make the sound while there. Does anyone know what causes that sound?

thanks.

First thought might be a loose/defective engine mount that only causes the noise when the drivetrain has different/reverse torque put through it.

Vague description.

Also, where do you do your oil changes and what oil filter do you have?

+1 on the oil filter question. It has been known that third-party oil filters can cause knocking in our engines. I had that issue when using a STP filter once....once. I had one in my garage and needed to do the oil change that day and I had run out of the OEM filters I normally buy.

Best to stay with the OEM filters. Due to the tight tolerances of our engines because of every last MPG they squeezed out of it it can cause knocking.

Hyundai actually put out a service bulletin about this dating back to 2005. http://www.hyundai-forums.com/attach...20-002-pdf.pdf

Some people are like Slinkies....not really good for anything but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

Dont knock yourself. Mine did it with K&N and M1 as well. So there is something different about the OEM filter. That has me a tad concerned. I am wondering if the bypass spring kicks in earlier or something.

Given the pictures Smoke posted a while ago, there was no real differences between the filters without using scientific equipment.

Knock only in reverse though.

You dont discount anything when so little is given in regards to information. Mine only knocks when the car is in certain positions with non-OEM filters. It was most curious.

Interesting. I keep reading about the non-OEM filters here and wonder. I've had my independent shop do only one change so far so I've driven roughly 4k of the 15k on the clock with a non-OEM. No knocks. They use Quaker St filters.

I have used M1, K&N and Bosche Distance Plus. On SBR's recommendation (per the TS I switched to OEM filters and it has never done it again.

When it would do it is when I parked it at the end of the driveway where there was just the slightest incline so the rear was lower than the front...by like an inch. At the top of the driveway there was no issue.
