Sorry for this, but usually if the engine knocks on cold start then goes away shortly, it's a sign of a rod bearing. This is just one explanation but in any case it needs checked QUICKLY! This isn't a normal sound and can only lead to bad things if not fixed.

Engine knock I've noticed the past several weeks that my 2000 Corolla has a pronounced engine knock (sounds like valve knock) on cold starts. Once the engine warms up, the knock is less noticeable, but still there. I bought this vehicle several months ago with about 50K miles on it. It currently has 56K miles and I change the oil/filter myself about every 4K miles and it does not appear to be losing any oil. Also on cold starts, the rpms spike for about 15-20 seconds before the idle slowing star


The idle issue is normal. The idle is controlled by the ECU. There are no adjustments for the idle. Regarding the knocking noise, that could be several things, and I am hesitant to comment without hearing it. Take it to a Toyota Dealer & have a t ... 2000 Toyota Corolla

I have a Chevrolet V8 4.8 liter Tahoe. It appears to have a lifter problem as it has a cold knock when the temperature drops. I live in Anchorage, Alaska, so you can only imagine. I took it to the local Chevrolet Dealership, and while they found numerous other issues, they tell me that the lifters cannot be adjusted, and the cold knocks are just common with Chevrolets. Is this true, or what do you suggest???
