Hissing sound on startup


A hissing noise is an indication of a vacuum leak ( probably in the manifold ) as I think as the manifold heats up the noise is lost because the gasket is now sealing off

This sound like you have either delay on internal lubrication to tappets,most probably due to correct oil either change or viscosity.
In how many miles you do change the oil ? Just do an engine oil flush and a engine oil & filter change using also a viscosity improve and follow for a different engine behavior.

Noise startup


Have your valve lash adjusted. Overhead cams need the lash done every 25-30K otherwise after some time they make a loud ticking sound. If the motor makes a "Knocking" sound, it may be a lower end noise, and there is no adjustment for that.

Loud exhaust noise on startup


2008 GMC Envoy is only equipped with one of two engines:
4.2L (254") 6-Cylinder SFI
5.3L (325") V-8 SFI

Niether of these engines are equipped with an EGR valve, so I guess the probability of that being the cause of your noise is pretty much zero to none.

If you believe the noise is being caused by the exhaust ststem, then the only way to verify that is to inspect the exhaust system. Leaks are easier to verify with the engine running.

With that said, there is also a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that is published by GM that addresses customer complaints about loud noise that is being caused by the electro-viscous engine cooling fan clutch. Some people describe it as exhaust noise and others describe it as the engine "racing" or "roaring".(even though the tachometer (if equipped) will be reading normal)

It basicly says that it can make noise on startup due to high rpm of the fan which goes away once the electric solenoids open and allow the fan to start free-wheeling. GM says this is normal operation. You might want to check to be sure this is not what you are hearing. (it can be pretty loud)

Ticking Noise at Startup


Possibly a leaking hydraulic lifter. They can leak down while engine isn't running and then make a ticking noise for a while on startup. If it takes 10-15 minutes to go away, it is more likely to be a loose tappet which needs adjusting.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe V6 3.5L with automatic transmission. 48K miles. When I start the car after sitting over night, I hear this whirring/whining noise from the engine compartment. I goes away...


your whining noise might be comming from dry belts in order to pinpoint your problem have a jug of water ready before startup open the bonnet then startup if the noise appears pour water over the belts if noise goes away replace v belts

02 silverado gas tank popping noise after startup & shutdown


It could just be the heat shield around your exhaust expanding and contracting again when your engine cools down. Sounds like a tin can type of popping noise?? If it is that's the heat sheild from the engine that protect's the spark plug wire and around under the truck cabin. Good luck and hope you find where the noise is coming from.

Soulds like valve clicking noise for about a sec during startup the goes away. when I changed the oil and filter I heard the same thing once I started the engine to let oil circulate through engine


It's normal. When the car has sat, the oil drains down to the pan. On startup, you're starting an engine with no oil pressure (any car is like this), but once the pressure pumps up after a second or two, the noise goes away. Don't worry about this - it's normal.

Engine knock noise on cold startup


these 3.3l engines are equipped with timing chains. if vehicle has prolonged down time, typically more than 4 hours, vehicle makes a chatter until the timing chain tensioners put tension on the chain. you will need them replaced.
