When we lift the hood, as we stand in front of the engine, the noise comes from the right side. The ticking noise speeds up when we rev the engine. The noise is always there, idle or driving. Noise has been there for about 4 months. No check engine lights have come on.

SOURCE: lifter ticking

You may have a dirty lifter with varnish buildup. Try this as it may very well solve the problem. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment. Add 1.5 oz of Seafoam for each quart of oil capacity. 4.5 Quarts = 6.75 oz Seafoam. Drive the car until you no longer hear the lifter and then have the oil/filter changed again. Next oil change use a quality filter such as Wix, Mopar, or Purolator. You can purchase Seafoam at almost any auto parts or marine store and at some Walmart stores. Here is their website.

SOURCE: 2006 Town & Country Engine Noise/Rattle

If the check engine light is on, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service at no charge. The fault code(s) will help narrow down the problem/potential problem. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

SOURCE: why does my 2005 Town & Country radiator fan

The fan is computer controlled and will not come on untill it reaches 212Deg . It should come on though if you turn on the air conditioning, if not you could have a bad fan relay or relay plug.

Ticking coming from engine 2000 town and country

Ticking is usually a sign of improper oil level or exhaust leaks often have a ticking sound. Try to listen to see if its in time with the normal exhaust sounds. If the oil level is fine and it doesnt sound like the exhaust, its probably a small mechanical issue. Get it checked out by a mechanic before the ticking object breaks and becomes worse.

Whine in engine-connected with acceleration

It could be the belt, but the belt is not an easy thing to change for a "mechanically illiterate" person. Also possible is that the "whine" is coming from one of the many components that it drives. In either case, the belt will have to be removed (and maybe even replaced due to it's age). The mechanic removing the belt can better carify the source of the "whine". As info, I repalced my belt at about 60K miles - but, it had a high frequency "ticking" which also increased in frequency with engine speed.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.

It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive

I have a 2006 pacifica and it has a tick coming from the top side of the motor and the tick increases with acceleration


This can often signify lack of lubrication at the top of then engine.

How many miles has the vehicle done, since it's last oil & filter change?
Is the vehicle often parked on an incline?

An oil change may rectify this - I recommend you select your oil carefully.

You can also buy a special oil additive, specifically designed to lubricate the lash adjusters at the top of the engine.

Hope this helps...

How to replace a water pump on a 2005 town & country. What would a dealer charge?

around 450 dollars. It varies from dealership to dealership. Call around and get a basic qoute as most shops will tell you that they need to see the vehicle to be able to give u a better quote. Most items replaced would be the coolant, thermostat, water pump,hoses(most will if the hoses are really "soft"), and all associated gaskets.
