Check to see if your fan belt is making that noise. When they get old, sometimes the rubber gets hard, and they make an awful racket.

Over 20 years in the field and I can't say I've seen something like that. Are you able to send clear pics of what you found?

I have a KIA Sedona, 2004, was driving it when it died and would not restart. was told may be timing chain. However all pullies turn when cranked.


Of course all the pulleys still turn when you crank it over even if you have a broken timing chain. The trick is to look and see if the CAM is turning. Remove the oil filler cap and see if the rocker arm is moving up and down. If that doesn't let you see the rocker arms, pull a valve cover. If valves are bent, when you hold a removed spark plug against the seat, it won't poof your hand back with the compression. When you have the valve cover off, you might be able to see the bent valve. The rocker arm will be sloppy loose.

Engine got a knocking cold start, silint when hot


It has developed a clicking engine noise on a cold start. After the car has warmed up, the sound goes away. ... Clicking or a sharp tapping from the valve cover on top of the engine would point to a valve train noise. A dull tapping or slapping sound from the side of the engine block would point more toward piston slap.4 Nov 2011

What will be the problem if i have a taping noise when i start my car until it gets warm mitsubishi 380


A tapping noise that starts out cold and goes away when warm is usually caused by a valve lifter inside the engine. The lifter may be worn/leaking down and will be noisy until it fills with oil pressure. You can try an oil additive ( Lucas Oil Additive ) available at most part stores works very well with noisy lifters. Another noise that can happen cold and go away when warm is an exhaust manifold leak. However, this is normally a ticking type sound rather than a tapping sound.

Remove the oil filler cap on valve cover and have someone turn over engine. If valves are moving the timing belt is OK. , if not the timing belt broke or is loose and may need replaced. Check internal timing pulleys as well for damage.
Also, check spark plug wires and replace as needed.

What would make noise behind timing chain cover on 2001 kia


IF this noise is a shrill sqeauling noise, their is a good chance it will be the timing chain tensioner pulley/adjuster. These are an inxpensive item and should be replaced each time the timing chain is changed. It is very advisable to get this checked asap, because if the tensioner and chain fail, it will lead to a complete engine failure, wich will be very costly. Being a 2001 model, it may have quiet a few kilometers on it, on the tensioner could be original. Replace these components first, regardless. If noise persists their maybe wear in the valve train.

Loud clicking noise coming from crankshaft pulley and goes away when a/c is on and when idle is higher. Why the noise?


Take a dry bar of soap and touch it against the sides of the belt(s) while the engine is running. If the noise goes away for a little while, the noise is from the belt settling into the grove of the pulley. Belts can really make loud pooping noises.

If this has no effect, then your timing chain may be too loose for the timing chain tensioner to compensate, and the chain is slapping against the inside of the timing chain cover.

If this is the case, do not let this condition go on. The timing chain cover is aluminum, and the chain is high grade steel. The chain will wear a hole in the cover if it is hitting the inside of it, and that is allowed to continue.

How do i change the belts on a 2004 kia sedona van


There is a tensioner pulley for each belt, you loosen the nut on the front of the pulley, then there is a tensioner bolt that you loosen, that will move the pulley away from belt to remove the belt. You'll need to get to them from the passenger side under the car. You'll need to remove the plastic covers to get them.

Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area


Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.

When I sart my 05 Sedona in the morning and put it in to gear it makes a ratteling noise and then when warmed up its fine.... Is this something major?


If it happens for about 10 seconds when it's cold but doesn't happen when the engine is started again until it has sat for several hours then it's your timing chain tensioners. Hyundai/Kia have a TSB for this, see the dealership.

Noisy startup when cold, sounds like valve


Hello onarock844...The Hyundai 2.4 litre and the 3.3 litre are known to have valve train noise. Some sooner than others.
The timing chain tensioners on the 06 and 07 Sonata 3.3 engines built before August 4, 2006 are well known for developing wear that allows them to make a tapping or rattling noise for a short time after a cold start. This noise can be mistaken for a lifter noise, although the actual source is in the front cover area of the engine. Hyundai has released a technical service bulletin on this problem, which describes installation of an updated design timing chain tensioner (part #24410-3C300) to correct this noise issue.
Ask your dealer to refer to Hyundai service bulletin #06-20-002 for information...If this has already been corrected,,,and the noise is coming from the upper engine area and not from the timing chain area, then the valve clearance will need to be adjusted. This is done by disassembling the valve train and installing slightly different size tappets to change clearance.
This is a fairly labor intensive process, so if you are still under factory warranty then you will want to go over the dealer's head and get the Hyundai zone rep involved to get it covered before your warranty coverage expires...
I recommend useing a full synthetic engine oil, i know in a few cases where the noise has stopped when the oil was changed over to synthenic, also a high quality filter is important, such as a purolator.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.
