Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tracker
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.
