Possible have you driven enough to refuel? Used additive? Drained tank?
Who said it was gas? Under warranty?

Thanks for answering me, but I really need help.
Yes, i've driven enough before refuel it. And I don't use additive, and my tank doesn't drain, I don't think it's gas. And I don't have warranty.

Hi their
well the problem was from bad fuel, which doesn't burn well, and the pistons doesn't work correctly, which effect on the pistons arm to work perpendicularly on the pistons, eventually makes this sound.
I solved this problem by refueling with a better fuel.
