And you've tried using a higher grade of fuel?
or fuel from a different station?
how long since your last tune-up?

my bro's 97 500 has never had those probs. You might want to check the gas. Maybe a dirty fuel line or something.

Does it make the sound all of the time or only when it is under load? If it does it all of the time the problem is probably something else, like a valve that needs adjusting. Sometimes a loose spark plug will make a knocking or a sharp puffing sound.

If it's out of oil the knocking should stop soon./images/icons/wink.gif

don't cam-chain tensioners make a knocking sound when loose or going bad?
