    hi Ed, when ever a vehicle came into my shop with engine noises the first thing i did was to check the oil level and cleanliness, next thing was to run my stethoscope over the warmed up engine to check for the source of the noise, this is called trouble-shooting. When the noise is located you then make the neccessary repairs .

    pop the rocker arms off with a screwdriver and check the lifters to see if there is any play. Shouldn't be any.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge durango v8 4.7

It is acually called the vehicle speed sensor I do believe. It should should be located on the top of your transmission with a wiring harness attached to it. It should also have 1 bolt holding it in also. Whatever you do, do not rotate the gear when you remove it. Try to mark the exact way it came out when you replace the sensor. When you pull the sensor out it will have this gear attached to it which will need to be placed into the new sensor and put back into the vehicle in the same way it came out or you will throw a code and it will not be pretty. Good luck, hopefully I didn't scare you it can be a simple repair just mind your P's and Q's.

SOURCE: loud clicking noise which the clicking noise getss faster as i accelerate

From what you are describing it sounds like it must be a valve lifter sticking. Try putting a cup of transmission oil in your crankcase, or pick up some suitable additive from your local parts store. I wish i could hear it and give you a better idea. Maybe let them listen to it at the parts store, and they can determine if it's a lifter or not. Let me know how you make out.

My car has a knocking noise when my car gets warm and looses power whlie driving.Does not have noise at start up only when I drive about 15 km the sound comes.


You say when it "warms up". The symptoms you are stating sound suspiciously like a serious overheating issue. The engine will clack loudly and lose most of its power when the engine becomes extremely overheated.

sounds like bad valve seats or seals do you have a oil pressure gauge on your dash.check the pressure.then check your return ports on top of the head thats giving you the problem see if the oil is returning to the oil pan.sometimes the return ports become blocked and the oil stays on top of the head.and see if the oil supply is making up to the head.hope this helps.mark

Loud ticking noise when first staring, engine stalls sometimes when starting it unless I hold the gas pedal down


The TPS would be what I would do had that problem once myself solved the problem. as for the ticking noise sounds like a lifter is bleeding down as long as the noise goes away you will be ok. But may I suggest that if you are going to keep the vehicle for awhile longer you might want to have a set of lifters put in it.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

I have a 2008 Dodge Durango, 94k miles. Every time I start the truck after it sitting for a while (in the mornings or when I am leaving from work), it has a loud ticking noise and the engine sounds really...


Sounds like the valve lifters are taking longer than normal to pump up with pressure. Getting the motor cleaned out and de-sludged would help. also use good quality oil after the cleaning.

4.7 dodge durango extremly loud lifter noise with low power from engine. replaced all 8 lifters on driver side and spark plugs replaced. still loud noise and runs real rough. cant even drive it like it is....


1. You have to replace the lifters on both sides. Can't just do one.
2. Use a compression tester screwed in at #1 cyl. crank engine and adjust in and ext for #1 to get 120psi. Then on to the next. Note pull all plugs b4 you start

3. reinstall plugs now it will start and no lifter noise
4. you fuel is fine don't pull anymore wires.

I HEAR TICKING IN THE ENGINE AND IM NOT SURE IF IT IS MY TIMING OF A LITTLE OR WHAT


The ticking is most likely to be the injectors. You will hear these prior to the engine starting when the ignition is at position two as the fuel pump builds pressure in the fuel line. If the ticking is loud and can be heard after the engine has started this could be a noisy cam shaft. Make sure your oil levels are OK and if the engine is running fine and pulling well do not become overly concerned about additional engine noises. If the engine starts to misbehave then that is the time to chase these noises down.
