Under the hood of your car on either the left or right side of the motor you should see something that says "oil" in not then look for a dip stick that is yellow. if you still dont find it when you are under the hood and your pulling out dip sticks if you pull out one that says "add" anywhere towards the bottom then that is the dipstick for the oil on the same side the the motor you should find a round cap that you can twist off this is where you add your oil. if you have anymore question just keep commenting. hope this helps you

    your engine needs the oil for lubrcation and when the oil is low the engine will start to make some noise each vehicle is different so the noise might be louder depending on the vehicle. were you able to find the oil add area and dip stick? let me know what you found out.

My car has a timing chain, when I start my car in the morning its very noisy then it quite down a bit,


noisy on start up is hydraulic lifter problem as they are loose until the oil pressure builds up. the adjustment is taken up and the noise goes
it mat have some noise from the chain until the oil pressure builds up as it has a hydraulic chain tensioner
you list it as a 2016 model and the only suggestion I could make is to go up a grade in oil viscosity
AS it is new the oil is probably 15w where I would use a 20 w 40 oil
run your engine against other new engines and see if the engine noise is louder ( use a noise meter ) and make the dealer do something as nothing gets quieter as it wears out --just louder

Stop noisy engine lifters


You are probably running low on oil unless you have been dogging the engine from red light to red light then you probably stretched the push rods you can also tighten the lifters

The lifters are noisy do i need thinner oil like 20w-30


I suppose it would be good to make certain that you have adequate oil in your engine... but as far as the oil viscosity: 20w as number representing the oil at its thinnest, is not 'thinner oil'.
5w-30 would be thinner...
If there's concern of the lifters getting enough lubrication, an alternate route is the oil additive made by "Lucas Oil", it causes the oil to stick to the parts & surfaces... it's pretty decent stuff that has been used as an additive in our 8 cars for years.

No oil preasure


First check the oil level. Do this on a level surface. Make sure it's close to the full mark, or in the operating range on the dipstick.
Next check to see how old the oil is. Is the vehicle well past it's scheduled oil change?
If the above checks out, then I suggest the oil pump is bad. Oil light being on, and noisy hydraulic lifter noise is directly related to low oil pressure. The oil light should come on at 3 lbs of pressure.

Rule of thumb is 10 lbs. of pressure for every 1000 Rpm.

Vehicles have a by-pass valve in the oil system. This comes into play when the filter is clogged up. The oil flow goes past the filter.

This by-pass valve is usually located in the engine block, where the filter attaches. It's up in the block itself. Depends on the vehicle, as to whether this statement hold true. There are many designs for an oil system.

sounds like a case of closing the horse after the barn ran away...Pretty good chance that you have lost an engine bearing (yes, that means it's new engine time)
To avoid this in the future regard your oil light as a "you just blew your engine" light. Check your oil at least every two weeks, and this will never happen again (not for lack of oil anyway!!!)

Oil light, noisy engine


If engine is noisy then you have an actual oil pressure concern.Sending unit only reads the pressure. I would recommend you have an actual oil pressure test done to see what your oil pressure is.You didn't mention what engine you have but rule of thumb is 30 psi at 1500 rpm warm engine.
