A tapping sound could be lifter tick, or rod knock... if it goes away, what you have is lifter tick, check your oil, low oil makes it worse.

Oil pumps up the hydraulic lash adjusters in your valve covers, at lower RPMs, the oil pressure is lower and will not fully pressurize them. Try holding your rpm at about 3500 or so with the car in neutral (parked) and see if it goes away, it should.

In later years (I think starting in 97 or so) mitsu started using a larger bore so called "third gen" lash adjuster. They don't tick as much, but they still do at times.

The good news, lash adjusters are not THAT hard to replace, figure a set of 24 will run you less than 150 in parts.

The better news, it doesn't hurt anything, as long as you can live with the sound, there isn't any reason to change them.

Good luck,
Scott

My SUV is in 4 wheel drive. I am putting it in neutral and turning the knob to 2 wheel drive. However it will not go out of 4 wheel drive. I really need help, can you help me?


Pull the lever from 4HI to 2HI and you're good to go. It'll take a couple of seconds for the actuator on the front axle to disengage and maybe even some driving, its not a problem though. 4LO is a different story, I usually get up to about 3 mph, put the tranny in neutral, and then shift into 2HI, it makes less weird noises that way :-P Do it in one swift motion though.

Starter problem? When i turn the key a weird clicking noise occures and the engine doesnt turn over


Fords have a starter relay. It's between the battery and the starter. It's usually mounted on the side by the battery. It will have about 4 wires on it, and has two bolts holding to the wall. You can get it from any auto parts store, and will take about 20 minutes to replace. It's something I've only seen on Ford vehicles. That should fix your problem.

93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)


well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

'04 Corolla Grinding noise when breaking


Even though there may be some brake pad remaining, sometimes you need to machine or replace the rotors in order to get rid of a noise. Rotors can develop a bad wear pattern that acts against a glazed pad to produce a loud noise even if they are not worn out. Replace the front brakes, pads and rotors.
