    awesome pinging sound coming from engine area

    so i was driving around yesterday and about 15 min away from a gas station when my low fuel light came on. After driving for about 5 min a strange pinging sound started to emit from the engine area. Of course im worried about whats going on but strangly enough it is not affecting the cars performance and is only noticable at take off and slightly at idle. so far ive added a octane booster hoping that maybe i got some bad gas. and that did seem to quiet it abit. i think im going to wait a few days and if still persits. off to the shop it goes. But i was just wondering if anyone out there has had a similar issue and what the solution was. THanks 2006 v6 awd

    Cool Re: awesome pinging sound coming from engine area

    Use up a lot of your gas in your tank, then fill with top-tier Hi-Test (Premium) gas,
    then see how it goes, give it a chance to correct the condition.
    Do NOT use octane booster.
    Be aware, it ONLY started AFTER you filled up at "THAT" gas station !
    Happy Motoring.
