RE: [DML] car pings when accelerating



Paul, If the engine isn't running hot, it's in time and spark advancing is
working properly and a tune up has been do then it normally shouldn't Ping
with 87 octane unless you got some bad gas.

Subject: [DML] car pings when accelerating


I finally fixed an exhaust leak on my car (a loose manifold nut).  Now
that the car is quieter, I can hear it ping when I gas it hard to
accelerate.  I currently use 87 octane (or whatever the lowest regular
gas is).  Would a higher octane eliminate the ping, or is there an
adjustment I need?

Thanks,
