I had the same issue. In my vehicle and many more online, I researched, all had lower engine problems from metal peices breaking from an unknown source. After supplying 5 years worth of oil changes receipts, they replaced my lower engine for free, under my warrenty. Hope thgis helps.

Sounds like your oil pump wnet bad, this is common when changing the timing belt.

    I agree - load of crud. The only connection is if some gasket material fell into the oil and is partially blocking the pickup screen. That would be a poor mechanic.

Car starts great, warms up then misfires and stalls out. Installed new water pump, timing. This question has been answered but the detail below still pertains to this same issue.


Hi, if you have been talking to somebody, if you reply on the comment link, they will know your asking another question. As far as firing order, whatever cylinder would have to be on compression stroke.

Hi, i have a toyota fielder 1.8cc with a some problem which has now come up. when i switch on esp in the morning after staying overnight, it produces some really annoying sound from the engine. when the...


If it is a 'squealing' noise it's probably the alternator/power steering drive belt. Before you turn on the engine in the morning, lightlt smear or spray some oil on the inside of the drive belt to lubricate it. If the squealing stops/disappears, then that's the fault ..

That squealing noise can be caused by an incorrectly tensioned belt, or a worn belt. Replacement is the only option.

The other frightening sounds can best be described as 'rattles' or 'tapping'. When a car stands overnight all the oil drains back into the sump (oil/pan).

There are two things (usually) that can be cause the rattle/tap:
1. Because the oil hasn't been pumped around the system, at start up worn big end bearings can rattle and tap on the crankshaft until the oil 'fills the gaps'. The tapping/rattling goes away as the engine warms and oil is pumped around the lubricating system.

A 'bottom end tapping' is a symptom of worn big ends (they are bearings at the bottom of the piston and fit around the crankshaft).

2. A rattle/tapping from the top of the engine can either be a worn camshaft or 'lazy tappets'. Again, when the engine warms and oil gets to the camshaft and tappets (also called 'hydraulic lifters) the noise will disappear.

If your car has this rattling/tapping noise - identify whether it is coming from just under the rocker box (ie the camshaft/tappets..) or the bottom end of the engine (big end bearings).

If the noise is coming from the top of the engine, try an oil change with a can of thick 'additive' included. A lazy tappet (lifter) isn't too much to worry about. A worn camshaft will affect the performance of the engine, though continue to do its job. An oil change with an additive included may help in quitening things down.

A bottom end tap/rattle (or 'knock') - the sooner that is sorted out the better.

My jeep taps a bit when cod but once warm is fine any solutions ??


Listening to you spell wrong and guess the theres a lifter tap when the engine warms up it goes away runs good all the time? Sure alot of 4.0 and some 5.2 V8 do this. Missed a few oil changes did we? Heres what happened and something that might make it go away (maybe) ( It'll be back later) The lifters have accumulated some varnish and as the engine warms the clearnce relaxes and the lifter tighten s the vavle train and the noise stopps. Most engines stop in the same place in their firing order every time you shut them off. So a certain valve is being held open by the lifter and the cam as the car sits parked. The oil slowly leakes down out of the lifter. then you start up the oil presure comes up slowly in the lifter galley and finally the lifter fille=s back up the lash is closed and it stopps clicking. Change the oil and add a can of fuel injector cleaner as the lifter will pump up quicker if it were clean you may have to change the oil very week for awile as your washing out the dirt that would have been chnges if the oil was changed enought. Cheap oil is good if you plan to change it more than once
