    what weight oil did you use? sometimes the thick oil will take sometime to circulate through the engine causing a knocking sound. does it last for very long?

Hi

Get a can of STP in there quick, and have your oil pressure tested with a master pressure gage, from cold this will tell you if you have a problem.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated thanks !!

Hard cold start 1997 Jetta gas


can't say for sure but almost all engines that have come to me needing ether to cold start have poor compression. test the compression first.
you sould never need to use ether on a gas engine and very carefully on a diesel when very cold.

I have a 1994 Subaru Legacy and It has started making a "knocking sound". Cked the oil, it was OK


knocks when cold ( Start ), then sort of diminish or disappears when warming up ???

Knocking goes faster when accelerating when cold ???

If Yes, then Piston knocking on the wall of the cylinder . The sound disappears as the engine is getting warmer it dilates and the gap gets smaller.

If this just started,

1. Put quality oil & filter ( Mobile Full Synthetic Oil & Mobile Oil Filter or Purolator )

2. Do not put cleaning agents mixed with oil.

3. Personaly i've put "Restore" Engine Restorer & Lubricant in cars with more then 200 000 km and the results are amazing. But only "Restore". My Volvo is at close to 300 000 km, and it runs great. It's not a cleaning agent.

By experience if the knocking just started you can put an easy extra 100 000 km on the engine before a rebuilt. Quality Oil & let the engine warm up ( 3 mins ).

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock


It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

Cold Engine Knock on 1998 Dodge Neon.


sounds like a lifter my ford f150 does the same thing when its cold but then quits when it gets warm or it could be a weak oil pump. (just some thoughts)

Nocking when cold then goes away (Proton coupe )


It sounds like you may have some sludge in your oil. When the engine is cold the oil is thicker and takes a while for the oil pump to pump it through the engine. The next time you change the oil. Do an engine oil flush first to clean the inside of the engine and ports. If this does not work you might have to have the oil pump checked. There is no need to worry as long as you have oil pressure and the knocking stops. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this answer.
