I got caught in heavy Manhattan traffic on a super hot day and noticed a little pinging just on initial takeoff from a light.

Other than that one incident I've had no problems with it.

Maybe the timing needs to be checked to be sure it's correct.

Accelerating gently while it's happening is recommended.
