Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tracker

2 Answers

Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.

On a cold start especially, my tracker engine makes a rapping/ticking sound. It sounds like it's coming from the front passenger side of the engine. The dealership said I need an oil change that contains additives that will clean my engine. I think it's the timing chain.

Does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should

It can be lifters,first try early oil changes and if on the third oil change its doesn't go than u need ur lifters to be changed but before going for the costly repair do rule out the other causes that might cause the same ticking sound like the spark plugs ,low engine oil or excessive engine oil.some times cleaning the chamber and the net underneath might help.hope this helps and best of luck.

Where does the wiring harness run for the fuel pump? is it under the floor mats?


take a rubber or cowhide hammer and rap the bottom of the tank several times and then turn the key forward and listen for the fuel pump sound. If rapping on the tank allows the pump to run then the pump itself is going bad so change the pump if that is so.

2006 FORD FUSION 2.3l i get a rapping sound in my engine it starting when i accelerated from a light and got worse with driving sounds like something is rattling around under the valve cover


Does it sound like Metal on metal noise? or like a knocking noise?

If it increases with RPM that means you may have a serious issue.

If your comfortable i'd take off one coil pack at a time and see if the knocking stops. If it stops that cylinder might have Rod Knock..

it could be valve lash, or a valve train tick as well. There are several different things sadly.

Engine makes a rapping noise at idle and under throttle.


The rapping noise makes me think that it might be a broken belt or even the lifters. It could be even your fan. Check the blades to se if they are bent or broken.
