Suzuki XL7 - Diesel sounding engine very loud noise. Initially started as a "tick-tick" noise. Currently at a Suzuki dealership (over a week long) and I am told that the problem is a inferior oil filter was used and it broke up. The pieces went into the engine and they need to clean it out. Then I was called back and said that some parts in the cylinder may have come apart and are foating in the engine when it going stopping the oil from getting to all of the engine. Have you ever heard of this
As a mechanic point of view,i have never heard that before,to be truthful and logic it is false,they are trying for an excuse. ... 2007 Suzuki XL-7
2004 Dodge Dakota 3.7L V6, manual. Below freezing out. Started up my truck it started making lifter noises upon start-up. I thought it was cold, so I let it idle for 10-15 minutes. As it was idling, it was making a loud clack sound every few seconds but not consistently. Noise got more frequent when accelerator was pressed. Check engine light came on, with error codes P300 and P304. Past due on an oil change, and the oil level was low (about 3 qts low) and sludge-like - thought this mi

I HAVE EVERYTHING FROM OIL STARVATION/ OIL PUMP, LIFTER, ROD, SEVERAL DIFFERENT BEARINGS TO ANTI LEAKING OIL FILTER? ANY
Bearing wear is measured in thousandths and if somewhat worn they can become noisy till the crank heats and swells a bit. Naturally if the crank is very cold it will take longer to swell. Only way to check is by using an oil pressure gauge (mechanica ... 1999 Dodge Caravan
1993 Chevy Blazer 5.7L V-8, with 250,000 miles on it. The motor runs great. At a cold start up the oil pressure is near to 60. As the motor reaches 200 dregree, it begins to lose oil pressure. Soon the oil pressure will go to zero and the lifters will start ticking. Turn the engine off, let it cool. Starting again at a cool temperature, oil pressure is near 60 until it get warm. Would a new oil pump, or high volume oil pump give the motor some extended life??? Thanks Tom
Yes. Definitely. The oil pump is just weak. The veins in the oil pump get worn and to not keep the oil pressure up. Along with the oil gets thinner as the oil warms up. It makes it more difficult to pump. Another suggestion is Slick 50 for high milea ... Chevrolet Blazer

As far as the car reving up when its cold it is probaly a dirty IAC or Idle Air Control valve its only function is to control the idle if you can locate it it is on the intake right bye the butterfly and the throttle postion sensor. And as far as the ... 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300

You may want to try switching to synthetic oil. It doesn't thicken up as much when it's cold so it flows more rapidly on a cold start. The thermal stability has added advantages when it's hot also. You can extend your oil change intervals so it do ... 2001 Dodge Durango
Driving, engine started running rough. Turned down side road made it about 1/4 mile. If I can get the engine to start it sounds like all the lifters are ticking and it runs for about 10 seconds and dies. It is not low on oil. No smoke, no other noises when it started acting up.
Sometimes the flywheel will crack causing it to make an awful ticking noise and the van will stall out. ... Dodge Caravan

I have installed all new inserts for the spark plug problem, my issue now is that I seem to be hearing the same ticking noise that preceeded the spark plug blow out. The difference with this issue is it is most pronounced when cold and seems to move from cylinder bank to cylinder bank...I just did an oil change recently though, I'm thinking oil distribution or lifter problem>?>

Iv got a 99 dakota with a 3.9 when its cold iv got great oil pressure but if i rev it up it bottoms out or if i let it start to warm up it makes a noise like runing a spoon over a wash board an slowly looses pressure an the lifters start ticking whats wrong with it
Sounds like worn main/ rod bearings. Too much clearance between bearings and crank shaft will make the oil pressure run low. If you have hydralic lifters, they too need good oil pressure to stay pumped up to keep the push rods against the rocker asse ... 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab

Ticking sound This morning while the car was cold, started it up. Then went to the store and all of a sudden hearing a ticking sound. Sounds like engine has no oil. But I did check and there is oil 3/4 full, I check the transmission oil, that's fine, brake fluid and thats fine, even the water in the the plastic container is normal position.

2009 Ford Flex when started first thing on a cold morning it ticks/knocs really really loud, once it warms up the ticking goes away to a very light tick. The dealership ruled out an exhaust manifold leak. They are going to keep it over night to restart in the morning to hear the knocking/ticking noise when cold. They stated it could be a lifter problem or a crushed valve but mentioned there is probably nothing they can do if its a lifter problem. It is still under warranty and only started d
It does sound like a valve lifter problem to me also. It should be covered under warranty. It's a mechanical failure of a component of the drivetrain. Ask them to show you the specific exclusion if they say it's not a warranty problem.Powertrain warr ... 2009 Ford Flex

My 93 325is engine is starting to get a ticking sound at an idle like a lifter noise. As soon as I rev it up to 2 thousand rpm it stops, anything I can do to make it stop, oil additive or anything? It only does it when the car is idleing

Alright, so my sister came over and when she was leaving she started her 2002 olds alero and i heard a ticking sound. It sounded like more than one lifter was ticking. Is this a sign that the oil pump is going out? I had her turn the car off after like four seconds. Checked the oil, it was full engine sludge shouldn't be a problem. She started it up a minute later and it didn't tick... What the HELL?
That tricking noise is common on the 3.4 gm engine's. It's called piston slap, you get it most of the time on first start or when you turn the car off and it just cooled enough for the pistons contract again.\015\012\015\012There is nothing we ... 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
Ticking noise upon engine start up, does not quit after warming up, noise appears to be coming from inside where you put in the oil on the front of the engine, i am a girl sorry i do not have a clue what that is or how to stop the loud tick, also as you accelerate it ticks louder and louder
Hi,\015\012\015\012It would seem you could have a problem with the valve train inside the engine.\015\012The best way to see if it is a valve train noise is to purchase a product called Morays Oil valve lubricant and just pour it straight into ... Pontiac Grand Prix
A loud tappety knocking sound is heard from the rocker cover area at a cold start up. The noise goes after about 5 minutes (or less) running time. Then sounds perfectly normal after that. Oil life is 50% and the correct grade of oil is being used. Car is kept in garage and not exposed to extreme cold temperatures. Oil and filter are changed on the regular maintenance schedule and there are no engine service lights showing while the problem noise is heard. This 2002 model has less than 60,000 mil

Oil pressure low message on dash board and ticking noise sounds like lifters. had oil leak took in for repair was told it was valve cover and transmission seal, had repaired when I got it back from repair started it up and heard ticking noise along with the message on the dash board about oil pressure low. help
After the repair they are suppose to have used the scan tool to erase the code message. Also you will need to drive the car for about 250 miles before the sound goes away and every thing will normalise automatically.Good luck and do relax ... 2004 Cadillac CTS
