First you got to determen where its comming from, surley you can hear if its comming from top of engine or from oil pan, i'am not there to hear it so its hard to tell what it is, but i can take some gusses on what it could be. You said a while back it started tapping, that could be a loose or woren rocker or lifter does it run on all cyls. no miss, good oil pressure, could be a connecting rod. The millage is high and things do wear out.

SOURCE: Tappets making a constant noise

i would suggest asking your mechanic which viscosity(thickness) oil he put back in and check it against the manufacturers recommendation as if it isto thin then it will make your tappets unusally noisey if he has put in the correct oil then i would say that they were quiet because of the old gungy oil and they either need adjusting or if they are hydraulic then the lifters need replacing

Tapping noise - oil pump?


Its possible the oil pump is going bad, but I doubt it would make the noise you describe.
Usually a tapping noise is a valve lifter or a piston connecting rod.
And low oil pressure could cause either, as well as dirt blocking one of the oil passages in the engine block.

MY OLDSMOBILE 1984 ROYALE 88 HAS A CONSTANT TAPPING SOUND. THIS MORNING ENGINE WAS SHAKING A LITTLE BIT. WHAT IS WRONG


I have the same car, and I had to change the crankshaft and oil pump. while doing so, the 3piece timing set had to be replaced and the gaskets for the timing set, oil pump and water pump had to be replaced....along with the oil filter and oil. it's basically rebuilding the bottom of the engine.

Hello there. I've recently bought a 54reg mk5 golf 2.0 gt fsi and the engine is making a tapping noise - even when it's been running. Is this normal?


a light tapping noise is quiet normal .Use a flushing oil before you change the oil and filter.then use 10/40 semi synthetic(as recc by VW)when engines at operating temp run at 3500 fo 30 secs,this will "charge" the hydraulic tappets,a cold engine has a valve rattle for about 15/20 secs but if longer then cam followers faulty.normally at 120,000m(roughly)
please leave feedback..

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any...


might be the valves have been damaged running without oil
- or the crankshaft / camshaft / main bearings
most probably you have to let the engine be rebuilt by a mechanic
(expect cost of more than US$ 2.000)
or get another (used) engine at a scrapyard 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-0.jpg 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-2.jpg

Tapping Sound from 2004 GC 4.7l Engine


If the tapping noise speeds up with the speed of the engine, it's a worn valve lifter.
If the service light is on, change oil and filter, if tapping is still there, the lifter is the culprit.

Tapping sound from engine


Maybe from lack of oil changes or over rev of engine.
Go to the auto parts store and buy good oil and filter and get a can of Marvel Mystery Oil (red can) and make sure the engine is 1 quart low on oil. Pour the Marvel in with your oil and let the engine idle for up to 2 hours.Then do an oil and filter change. The Marvel is a heavy detergent that will clean up your engine and wash most of the dirt into your old oil filter.Be nice to your engine!

91 previa LE, 205K miles. diving Tucson to St George, UT, 800 pound load. After 3 hours at 65-75 mph, had to slow down as engine was struggling to keep up speed. Stop for gas, and engine was "tapping"...


It is probably a oil pressure problem. If there is some sort of small blockage in an oil journal it could stop oil from flowing to the lifters which would cause the the tapping noise. at this point the best thing to do would be to try and flush out the engine with some sort of desludging agent. One thing i usualy do is drain the oil and re-fill it with atf and run it for about half an hour or an hour and then re-drain and replace with normal engine oil. transmission fluid contains tonnes of detergents and should help clean out any blockages.

Vw t4 '03 tapping noise


Hi,

Next time it's tapping at idle, press the brake pedal hard several times. If it stops tapping then gradually returns then it is a noisy vacuum pump.

It can go on like that or years (if you can put up with the tapping that is!) if you start to loose servo assistance while manovering then it's time to change the pump.

Hope that helps.
