Has it had any work done in the timing belt area of the engine or the ignition/distributor.Have you checked that the firing order and h/t leads are correctly fitted Also check that your pcv valve is working properly It could be a lot of different things so a bit more information would help to narrow down the problem

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...


Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

1995 toyota camry check engine light code po325 & PO330 (KNOCK SENSORS) I replaced them both and still same code came back right away


You now know the sensor is seldom the problem when these codes appear. The sensors measure vibration in the engine that resembles a spark knock. When the signal hits the computer the computer turns back the ignition timing to try to prevent it.
The sensor can pick up a valve tick or piston vibration and not be able to tell the difference.
The warning light comes on when the computer is not able to make the noise or vibration go away.
So you could have a mechanical problem, or something in the wiring harness going back to the computer.

Engine vibration


Poor tuning of the engine can result in higher engine vibration. So the fuel and ignition timing MUST be trimmed to allow the engine to tick with ease. if this wont happen the health of the engine is under question and must be checked.
So check the fuel quality, filter and calibration- right fuel mixture of air/fuel.
Next the ignition timing to coincide with the correct timing mark and set using a strobe.
If this wont correct the valve settings, compression and timing must be rechecked.

Engine ticks and steering vibrates when certain


Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

Tick or click sounds are usually the sign of a tappet or sticky valve. I am not a great fan of engine cleaners, but If you are looking at a valve replacement, what have you got to loose. Follow the directions on the bottle and you may save yourself a lot of money.

Before you take the Volvo in for a valve job. I suggest you let me know and I can "walk" you through removing the valve cover and "freeing" up the sticky valve if the engine cleaner does not work.

I trust this has been helpful to you. Please let me know if I have been and help. This is the only Payback I get and I want to to improve my skills in helping others. Also, rank me as to my level of helpfulness.

Feel free to call or email me.

Vibrations, tranny slipping, and engine tick


Sounds like you may have a worn out CV joint and the clicking may stop with an oil change. Good Luck

Have a slight clunking,ticking and a vibration


Well you will have to have a vice and usually they arent hard to replace just a good hammer and a vice usually will do it once he takes the 4 bolts out of the rear of the drive shaft then pull it back to remove it from the transmission... Thanks Jerry
