Question about 2000 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Oil pressure light

My 2001 kia sportage has a loud ticking sound in the engine louder at times. the oil pressure light stays on most of the time however I can't establish a pattern of when it goes off and on again. I have recently changes the oil and put an engine flush in. afterward I put lucas oil stabalizer, all of this to hopefully solve this problem. The oil change was many miles overdue, I hope I havent done severe damage to the engine.
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Oils in long over due service forms **** which can't be circulated properly under normal oil pump pressure causing Crank shaft or cam shaft bearing recieve the lubricant quite late. The said bearings could be damaged.

For the light, the oil pressure switch could have accummulated some **** which is making it malfunction.

Kia optima engine ticking


sounds like lower end bearing damage (connecting rod) when oil level drops at interstate speed a connecting rod bearing will seize very quickly thus causing the bearing to spin in the rod and enlarge clearance . that is the knocking sound you here .

Ticking noise from engine on 1997 kia sportage


Sounds like your problem might be bad lifter or bad rocker arm spring. Either way you'll probably have to remove the valve cover to check both. You might also go to a parts place and purchase an oil additive to see if it might help free up the lifter...if thats what it is.

My 2001 Kia Sportage w/145,000 and has a annoying tapping sound


When the engine warms up it should be fine.
Check that you are using the proper oil. Also check if there is a winter oil recommended. Sometimes winter oil is a bit lighter weight and can help keep the ticking noise down or gone all together.

Engine knocking, valve ticking loud in engine, when idle or drivi


Make sure the oil level is good, and have the oil pressure check by a garage or someone who can, by using a external gauge to see what the actual oil press is. Low oil pressure will give you the ticking, start there.
