It is all gonna depend on who you take it too. the no start could be a fuel pump gone out. listen and see if you hear the pump run when you cut key on it should run for about 5 seconds. As far as the lifters a set of lifters will be about $100 plus you will need intake gaskets it should pay around 5hrs labor

Knocking noise


Yes the lifter or one of the valves could be damaged. No the valve cover and maybe the cylinder head would need to be removed to repair depending on what the actual problem is.

It does sound like a valve lifter problem to me also. It should be covered under warranty. It's a mechanical failure of a component of the drivetrain. Ask them to show you the specific exclusion if they say it's not a warranty problem.Powertrain warranty is 60 months/60,000 miles ( which ever comes first).

I don't know what engine you have. If it is the v6 then you probably have the death knock my v6 just did that last month! a new crate motor cost 1200$ and put it in your self.

Engine knocking right after a tune up on a 2000 hevy blazer LS


I would say look at each of your plugs. Knocking noise usually come from pre-ignition. So your most likely not getting a good spark in one of the cylinders.

You could have:
Fouled a plug with a piece of engine dirt
Changed the gap while placing it in the engine
Broke a plug wire
Also check to make sure the plugs are in the same heat range (ie exact replacements)

2000 Cav 2.4L DOHC possible lifter tap?


If the tapping noise speeds up with the speed of the engine, it's a lifter.
Being a DOHC, is not an easy job.

1996 chevy s10 4.3 vortex lifters knocking at start up but goes away after 10 minutes idling. changed oil and filter oil pump reads 58-60psi at idle and seems to be working.


High milage? Try engine cleaner, run for couple hundred miles and then use an additive like Restore. If it's just dirt this may help. Make sure you are using the correct viscosity oil for winter temps. If it's from wear only parts replacement will fix it.

Light knocking at the first start each morning


sounds like a high mileage motor. worn lifters that take a few minutes to pump up. Might add a quart of marvel mystery oil. To improve cold start upper cylinder lubrication.

Motor knocks when first started


It sounds like the lifters are draining down over night. When was the last time you changed the oil? A fresh oil change may do the trick, if not try some hydraulic lifter additive ( you just add to the engine oil)

Engine knocks 3.2 isuzu rodeo 2000 ? help


You don't say how many miles or give a service history, but, that said I would check the timing belt and tensioner. When tensioner goes bad is often is reported as a loud knock or tick. Usually most evident at low RPMs. Another low cost try is to use a can of seafoam in the oil now, run it a few miles, then change it for a high detergent, low viscousity oil and drive it a while to see if the lifters clean up. engine tick is very common, generally due to lifters oil passages getting sludged up a little for 2nd gen 3.2l's

Knocking until car warms up


Sounds like a lifter noise. worn lifters can't keep oil in them anymore so over night the oil leaks out. when you start the vehicle, you will hear a ticking noise or knocking noise till the lifters fill with oil again. only remedy is to replace the lifters.
you could try an additive but it's temporary.
