Oil light on when car reaches operating temp then engine knocks

When car is cold, you hear a little ticking from the engine but car runs fine. When car reaches operating temperature, the oil light comes on and car starts to surge. There is a terrible knocking sound coming from engine and car eventually dies. All fluid levels are fine. The engine light does not come on during this time. Car was hooked up at Autozone to get a reading from computer but computer registered no problems. Was told it could be oil pump or sensor, but sensor should have tripped the engine light and registered on the computer. Car has 150,000 miles on it.

    As stated in this posting, I have the same problem! When first started, the engine seems to run fine. Once, up to operating temperature, it begins knocking and when idling, the oil light flickers on.

    I tried to Seafoam the problem, but no results from that.

Use professional quality oil filters. While purchasing economy oil filters may save a few dollars, you will be greeted on cold starts by a rattling noise that continues until the engine reaches operating temperature. All oil filters are not made the same. If you were to dissect quality oil filters, such as a MotorCraft, Wix or the Napa Gold Line model, you would see an anti-flowback valve installed within the filter. The purpose of this valve is to keep the oil in the engine's top end after the engine is shut down. By doing so, the valve train is lubricated instantly at start up, instead of seconds later after the oil pump has circulated the oil from the oil pan to the top of the engine. Dissect a cheap oil filter and essentially what you will find is a filter medium akin to a coffee filter, wadded inside a tin can. If you notice the ticking sound on start up, make sure to change your oil as soon as possible and use a good-quality oil filter.
Protect the engine with the factory-recommended-weight oil to keep valve ticking noises at bay. Your 5.4-liter left the factory with 5W-20 or 5W-30 semi-synthetic oil in the engine. Use of thicker oils, such as 10W-30 or 20W-50, no matter the climate, can overwork the engine's top end as it attempts to work with the thicker oil coursing through it. Once you have installed the thicker oil, you will most likely experience a ticking noise that does not dissipate when the engine reaches operating temperature. The longer the engine is operated with the wrong oil, the louder the noise will get. The synchronizer, which controls the timing for the top end, will ultimately become damaged and need to be replaced. As soon as you discover this ticking noise and know you have used the thicker oils, have the oil replaced immediately with the recommended weight.

Ticking sound upon acceleration. worse when cold


When you start the car with cold engine the oil light indicator is on even after the engine started?
If the sound comes from the engine itself you could check the oil level with cold engine before start.
If oil level is ok ( between low and maximum marks on the dipstick ) then could be 3 posible causes:
1. Bad oil
2. Faulty oil pump
3. Worn camshaft bearing, worn crankshaft bearing, or faulty piston bolt.
It may help if you bring on some more details like since when is making that noise, in what circumstances appeared and so on.

I have a ticking sound coming from my 4.5 engine when I excellerate but there is no ticking sound when the car is in park


Often a sticky lifter. Try an oil change with a premium oil of the right viscosity, and an additive designed for the problem.

Heater donot get hot whil running


It could be a plugged heater core or heater control problem. I assume the blower is working, but the air is cold. The first thing to check is the coolant level, make sure there is coolant in the resivoir. Next see if the temerature gauge reaches the normal operating temperature range. If the gauge reads cold most of the time, it would tell you that the thermsotat is faulty and not allowing the engine to reach full operating temperature. If your car doesn't have a temp gauge, the blue cold engine light might stay on for an extended period of time. The thermostat is supposed to not allow coolant flow in the radiator until the engine reaches operating temperature. If you drive the car for a couple of minutes, from cold start, the radiator or upper hose should be cool until the engine reaches operating temp.

2000 chevy blazer starting issues


swng,
1) Is the service engine soon light ever on when engine is running?
2) Per your description I would look at the ECT sending unit. It sends coolant temperature information the the Engine Control Module for proper fuel delivery for cold engine start. It may have lost its calibration.
Let me know.

Oil pressure light stays on


It will take a while for the oil to circulate throughout the engine at that cold of a temperature. You may want to get an oil change done and make sure you have the proper oil for the temperatures. What happends is that the oil gets thicker and has a harder time circulating through the engine. BE VERY CAREFUL leaving the car run with the oil light on. You can blow the engine very quickly as I learned the hard way. Good luck to you and thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC
