You have a valve tapping, it is ok but not after a long time, you need to have someone adjust your valves, and inspect your rockers.

My loyale starts and runs ok, but makes a terrible noise, coming from the engine area. It sounds like a very loud knocking, clicking, sort of sound. It doesn't seem to affect the running of the engine, low rpm's, hard to start, loss of power, etc.. (I'm NOT driving it.) Any ideas on what it could be?


Hi a loud noise like the one you described can really only be a few things, either the main engine bearing is getting worn and is on its way out or you have a damaged or dirty lifter. The main difference between the two is the bearing will sound like ... 1991 Subaru Loyale

Clicking coming from wheel assembly when in four wheel drive. I just replaced the wheel studs on my 2000 Nissan xterra. When I took it for it's first test drive I noticed a buzzing noise coming from the wheel I worked on, the noise goes away when I take a turn In either direction. When I put the car in four wheel drive a clicking noise seemed to come from the wheel assembly. About two clicks per rotation of the wheel. Any help on what you think might be causing this would be greatly appreciated.

Electrical fault I was fitting driving lights to my 98 GF 626 and whilst fiddling with the fuse box to pick up a power source I heard a series of clicking noises like a relay or something operating,then it stopped, leaving me with no power at that particular junction and no central locking, no radio, no intertor light and the engine seems harder to start and has a high pitched whine in it while running which was not there before. Any ideas what I might have damaged in the electrics please. regar

I have a 2001 Saab 9-3 2.2td and there is a very loud continuous ticking noise coming from it. rnI cannot seem to pinpoint where it is coming from. It doesn't affect the car's abilty to drive at all, in fact when the engine is started and on idle the ticking is slower than when the car s moving as the tickng gets faster. I have asked numerous mechanics about what it could be and nobody seems to know. Any ideas on what it is?


I had a similar noise on my 01 9-3 and several mechanics suggested it was a rod knock which would require replacing the engine. Luckily it turned out to be a cracked flywheel. The repair cost me $1100. ... 2001 Saab 9-3

2000 Ford Taurus 110, 560 miles (original engine, rebuilt tranny) - #1 Problem: A few times a week when i come to a stop, the engine oil light will blink rapidly. When i speed up, the engine oil light will turn off. It doesn't happen everytime i drive. #2 Problem: I get a chirping sound almost when i drive. The faster i drive, the faster the sound. I'm not sure if a belt loose or not. I had one replaced after the sound started but it didn't fix the noise.


Sounds like a cam chirping, cant remember if that was normal for that engine, mine did it randomly, oil light could be a bad pressure sensor, hopefully it isnt your bearings wearing out, good luck i hated this car ... 2000 Ford Taurus

Vehicle on jack stands, start engine, put into drive, then enguage 4-wheel drive. Light flashes and clicking sound comes from transmission.

The amount of the clicking noise increases in speed when i drive faster. Please help. What is wrong and is it safe to drive on?

When we turn on our 2000 Toyota Sienna van everything sounds fine but the minute we put it into reverse to back out of our gararge it makes kind of a high pithced noise and it kind of sputters when we step on the gas.

I have a loud clicking, tapping noise coming from my 1997 F150 4.2 liter engine truck while it is running. The noise gets faster as I increase throttle. When it first started this I had a lot of white exhaust smoke, but now I don't have any white smoke. Oil level is normal, oil pressure is normal. I did a block combustion test and there are no vapors escaping into the coolant. The truck does not skip or shut off unless I shut it off, just that loud clicking noise. What could it be?
