This not a TRICK question: What is wrong with a car when the Newton Valve is knocking on the Banjo Housing? I don't believe I will get a answer very soon. Decades ago I asked a Auto shop teacher the same question and embarrased him in front of my fellow students as he could not give me a answer. If I get a answer, it probably will be from the UK. Steve

Time to change the rear end gears would be my guess.

And a guess is exactly what it is.

Is it called the Newton valve because its on the downstroke, just a guess because of Newtons law.

a banjo housing is ther rear end housing. There is no such part on any car called a newton valve. Someone is pulling your leg.
It's possible someone has nicknames something a newton valve, but in over 40 years of turning wrenching for a living, I can assure you there is no such part.
We used to fool the rookies with stupid questions like that. We tell a newbi to go to the parts store and get us a can of compression, or a muffler bearing. those items are kept right next to the newton valves...1

Do a quick search for newton Valve and see what you get. Not part of any car or truck as Donn2390 says.

Yes, thee Bajno can be referred to as a part on the carb intake fitting and also to the rear differental, but what about the Newton? Where is it at? Think!!!! Autos are made in different countries besides the US. I was asking for Knowledged Mechanics, and not referring to any particular country. Like I said "this is not a trick question." My dad was a master mechanic of 40 yrs who at one time worked on a Antique Rolls Royce of the 30's. As for me, I'm a mechanic of 28yrs (now retired), and I learned the question from him. Steve
