02 intrepid ticking

My 02 intrepid just started ticking. Engine light is not on, oil is fine. Is this the start of a slugged up engine?

Most dodge motors have adjusters on the rockers for taking up slack in the valve-train. when these get worn or plugged by dirt they turn the valves from soft hydraulic to hard ticking due to a space between the lifter and the valve. If this is an overhead cam with roller lifters then these have become worn or fouled.

Sometimes before getting into that criteria, check your knock sensor sensor first, it tends to make a slight knocking sound, even low grade octane fuel makes the car tick, emissions, try your grade of fuel first, never use anything below 84

I brought a 2004 usedd dodge intrepid I have had it about 4 months just today the oil light came on I also notice a ticking sound when I first start the car but seemed to go away after warm up but oil...


I would suggest you have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge to see what it is. Removing a valve cover would probably show evidence of sludge in the engine if it is there.
I have used kerosene to clean out engines but it is not the safest thing to do.

Engine starts and stops ticking


Sounds like oil pressure problems to me. Check to make sure your oil level is correct. If the oil level is OK get the engine checked by a professional.

It ticks after warming up but only when i come to a stop an oil light comes on 99 2.7L intrepid


Have that checked ASAP, you may already have engine damage. These engines are bad news, Oil sludging, timing chain and water pump problems if you dont use a synthetic oil.

Hi I have a 02 Honda Odyssey. Since I had teh


well oil consumption is either worn piston rings or worn valve guides and or seals,,,did they reuse the cylinder head that had the bent valves and just put new valves in it?if so i bet the vavle guides are damaged and the valve seals and oil is leaking by causing it to burn oil and thats why you have a ticking and oil consumption, i would take it back and demand a new cylinder head,,,for free

2000 Intrepid turns over no spark


"No Bus" usually means you have a bad ground. Check the condition of the battery ground, clean it if necessary. Check other grounds as well.
