Remove the thermostat, put it all back together, add coolant that you have lost, bleed out the air & see if the problem goes away. If the thermostat is seized closed, the radiator will be cold when the engine is overheating.

My Hyundai Accent 2001 auto. engine sound is like tik tik tik how to fix it


First check your oil. Hyndais also tic tic tic from the top of the motor but it is the noise of the fuel system. If you let it go dry on oil at one time you may now have bad lifters.

Just purchased renault megane 99 platei know it only done 1000 mls in 1yr and been standing for a few mths. And only now noticed the tapping noisewhat can i do.oil is fine and temp is good.please help.


Suspect a sticky cam follower/tappet that is hydraulicly adjusted and isn't being controlled properly. Usually adding some additive in the oil that frees up lifters will help, or an oil change using an additive for the same purpose will help. It may even 'go away' on it's own over time. Good luck!

I have a bmw 2003 325i e46 i changed my oil with castrole 5w 30 when i started the car i heard a noise like tik tik tik is the oil to thin should i go for a thicker oil like castrole 10w 60 can you help


You can try a thicker oil. But it sounds like a valve lifter may be going bad. Try an additive to see if it makes any difference. May be that the pump did not pump the oil right away. Run the car for a while . See how it sounds.If the ticking gets worse it is probobly one of the lifters.

Clicking noise


If it ticks louder than most cars, maybe it is running a little hotter than most cars?
I wouldn't worry about it.
I suggested oil level as low oil level (to almost none) would make the valve tappets noisy.
But your "problem" as you said is when the engine is off, if this is the case then I wouldn't worry about it.
Take your family's advice.

The heat of the exhaust system contracting (cooling) is what you are hearing.

Renault 5 GTL


How much mechanical ability do you have? Replacing the head gasket on a 5 is not an easy job, and if you have water in the oil, you prob have compromised the main & rod bearings. Water & oil on the bearings makes them wear out rapidly. Plus, if you take the head off (don't pull it UP, leave a corner bolt in loose and PIVOT the head on the dowell pin, that way you will not pull up the liners), if you don't, you will unseat the piston liner seals, then you have a whole new problem to deal with. If you really want to do this, you need to remove the cyl head, and then take it to a machine shop to check the straightness of the head mating surface, and possibly the block. Then hope that the liner seals are not compromised when you put it all back together...
Overheating Renault engines is unfortunatly quite expensive.
Sorry, I do not have the torques specs.
