I drove my mustang threw a half foot of water and it stalled and died when I restarted it it made this tapping knocking noise that u can feel tapping on the passenger side intake manifold

My guess is a bent rod caused by hydro locking a cylinder with water. I've seen it alot in mustangs and crown vics. Your water soaked air filter is a dead giveaway.

Replace oil and oil filter the oil is clogged up and needs to be replaced, Replace oil with a High viscosity oil you require more lubrication when cold a good Motor spares will be able to assist you with the correct oil,The noise it makes is cause the oil is not lubricating the cranck shaft and bearings and hydraulic tappets this is like a rumble noise,Only happens when the motor is not getting a good lubrication Caution if this continues to happen the motor will start to run dry and seize all bearings starting with the cranck shaft bearings.try to get synt synthetic oil expensive but will work .But do ask where you are buying for the best oil for low temp weather they will assist.

Engine makes a rapping noise at idle and under throttle.

The rapping noise makes me think that it might be a broken belt or even the lifters. It could be even your fan. Check the blades to se if they are bent or broken.

Noise coming from engine

are you getting oil pressure when the car is warm have you changed the oil recently or is it overdue if you have an oil pressure gauge on your dash check to make sure you are getting propper oil pressure as this is what it sounds like you are losing oil pressure and your valves are tapping.

98 altima oil light on and off oil level fine car restarted and

If oil pressure is LOW this vehicle has a safety feature that will prevent vehicle from starting.(check oil level before you start) Now what I wan't you to do is to have the oil pressure switch checked or changed. This may be the reason why this vehicle is not starting or it can also be that the actual oil pressure is low. To check the oil pressure of the vehicle you will need an oil pressure guage. Remove the oil pressure switch and connect guage to oil pressure hole and check oil pressure while cranking vehicle.Some pressure testers can be connected to oil filter housing either is fine. If this vehicle has low oil pressure the reasons for that are bad oil pump, clogged oil pump pick up(from lack of oil change/poor mantainence) or bad connecting rod and main bearings but this usually have a warning from before (the engine will sound loud by knocking /clicking-tapping noise) It this was happening you may need to rebuild this engine or replace it. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA

Mysterious car noise

Check the oil first, if it is low it will cause a host of noises in the engine.

It sounds like that may be the problem you have
