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. The ticking sounds like a tap, tap, tap or tick tick tick. It happens when the engine is hot or running. When being parked it's quiet. Any suggestion(s). I h

Hello, I have a Subaru Forester 2005, 2.0 lt with 90,100 mi. Recently we clean the radiator, changed the coolant and aligned wheels. Suddenly when the engine gets warm and the car is running it begins to sound tap tap tap tap... The sound stops when I release the accelerator pedal. The engine temperature is normal and it has the usual power. What could be the cause of this problem?


It sounds like you are low on engine oil and or a bad oil pump. ... 2005 Subaru Forester

Tapping sound in the engine started 2 days ago. The sound comes and goes at startup (not always present at startup), and disappears on deacceleration. Engine oil is OK. Temp doesn't register above normal. Anybody have any idea what this is? My neighbor says it's a rod, but I had a rod go years ago on a Ford, and this doesn't sound like that. This is the second engine in the car, and this engine had a vacumn seal issue from the time I received it. (but shipping it back to CA would have cost


Usually caused by a failed hydraulic lifter. You can verify by removing the valve cover and finding a valve with excess clearance. The lifter/adjuster should be replaced ASAP to avoid damage to the cam lobe. If you would like instructions on repla ... 1993 Subaru Loyale

Just had rear brakes replaced, also new part for up and down window action. And general maintenance(fluids, belts, oil, etc.) When I got car back, the engine seemed rougher and now has a tapping sound apparently coming from motor. Also at times a kind of 'brushing sound.' Shop owner said the noise was definitly from inside engine and that it would be fairly expensive to go into the engine to track it down. He also said it might be serious or if I didn't mind the noise the car might do just fi

96 Eclipse 2.0 non-turbo Engine has a tapping sound that sounds like its coming from the top of the engine. The sound is loud enough to make it difficult to tell where its coming from. I took the valve cover off and everything looks good. No cracked rockers or anything else unusual. I cranked it over while it was off and didn't hear anything. There was some oil in the plug hole of cyl 1.?Compression checks good.


Most likely cause is a hydralic tappet. Mits are well know for top end noise. Note we are talking about a tapping or clicking sound not a knock. You can try using an engine flush product if the noise is getting bad and then changing your oil. Gen ... 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Hello, This is the problem i am having. my 2001 chrysler sebring ran low on oil for some unknown reason and the oil light was coming on. Shortly after the engine started to have a knocking sound to it. kind of like a rattleing. I then put 4 quarts of oil in and made sure it was at the correct level. i know a little about cars so i know that it isnt valve tapping. it sounds the same but its alot louder of a knocking sound. instead of a tapping sound.do you have any suggestions


I think your engine may be junk now. its a good idea to check oil on any vehicle daily as suggested in any vehicle owner manual. the piston rings could be worn out causing it to use oil or a bad head gasket, or maybe u have a oil leak you dont know a ... 2001 Chrysler Sebring

Oil light came on and there was a moaning tapping noise....... then the check engine light came on... then there was only a slight tapping sound... i added a qt of oil and tried to drive the car home and the engine stopped. the commputor check on the engine said the crank angle sensor was bad along with the egnition sensor. If it is only sensors where did the noise come from?


Was the oil low before you added any? What computer check? You went to a shop to have it scanned? Have the code issues repaired first then move on to the noise issues. Not a very new car I hope your not the original owner because you should not hav ... 1998 Ford Taurus

The engine was making a tapping noise and then the tapping became a loud knocking noise, then it sounded like something broke. Now the engine wont turn over to start. Could it be a broken rod or piston? The engine didnt overheat nor did the oil light come on.

I take very good care of my cproblem with these engines?ars. Is this a common problem? Could this be a bad knock sensor?


Probably a sticking valve lifter. Try putting a cup of transmission oil in the engine crank case, or any off the shelf product that is made for said problem. If it doesn't stop, you will have to get it looked at and repaired. It will eventually cause ... 2001 Mercury Cougar

Ticking noise I have a 2007 chevy cobalt (recently bought - used). After I shut off the engine, there is a continuous ticking sound under the car (by the engine part) lasting 3-4 mins. I brought it in for inspection and I was told it was the exhaust cooling down, as the metal expands, it makes the ticking sound, and it is normal. My car does this all the time and it is frustrating. I didn't notice the ticking on the first day i got the car, but now it is constant. Is there anything that can be d
