    2G Is my o2 sensor harness still good

    My car doesn't seem to run at its full potential. When i step on the gas the engine seems/sounds like its running fast, but the car accelerates very slow, slower than a civic lol. Do you think a bad o2 sensor would cause that problem?

    2G Weird knock coming from top of engine?

    It only happens when I step on the throttle as the engine runs harder, there's a single loud metal thump, similar to a hammer hitting the oil pan, from to under the engine.
