If this is the GM 3.1L V-6, do NOT switch to a thicker oil. These engines were renowned for sludge build-up and poor oil flow. Find yourself a dealer or equipped auto shop that can flush it and put in the recommended weight of oil.

It could be a valve lifter. change the oil and filter. Use a thicker oil and see if it makes a difference. Eventually you will probably have to replace the lifters if that is in fact the peoblem.

Sudden loud noise


Not a vacuum hose. If it is coming from the top of the motor, I would first check the oil. If there is a hole punched into the oil pan , you may be very low on oil. If oil's fine, I would suggest looking at the transmission housing. If the manhole came up and hit the housing, it may have cracked that, or cracked the fly wheel. One more thing I'm thinking is that if the manhole hit your starter, and pushed it up, It may have cracked the fly wheel. This can make it sound like it's at the top of the motor. Very loud tap tap tap tap. If you excellerate, the noise will go faster too. I just can't see a manhole doing any damage to anything in the top of motor. Make sure you check the oil ASAP. Hard to tell without hearing it. A video would even help. Let me know what you come up with. Good luck

Motor making a loud tapping noise


Please open the bonnett and identify the tapping noise before we can decide on a possible fault.
It can be the slapping of belt, the water pump, the idler pulley, alternator.
If not the noise may be coming from the engine, possible tappet, cam noise or crank pulley being loose.
It is better you carefully hear the location of noise.A possible hint, spray some water to the belt, pulley, water pump, alternator pulley to see if the noise dies off . if so replace the confirmed part.
If within engine, teh section has to be confirmed but only after removing section.
Hope this help to identify. good day

1989 Lebaron with a tapping noise.


I would replace the injector and see how that goes. It could be going bad or malfunctioning. You run the chance of it going bad and causing serious engine problems.

I have a 91 legacy GT and theres quite a bit going wrong...when you start her for the next 20minutes or so theres a taping noise which increases as you accelerate...going around corners a loud noise comes...


hi you have a worn camshaft it always makes noise when worn the tapping sounds louder when you accelerate.its important to have regular oil changes as the oil ways can become blocked and lead to this type of trouble if oil changes are over looked.also check for worn big end bearings that connect the pistons to the crank shaft.

I have a loud tapping noise sometimes, coming from under my dash (drivers side). It sounds as if someone is tapping with a hammer on the plastic. I have a 2002 Ols bravada. It it safe to drive?


The AC/Heater unit has electric motors the open and close all the vents and heat to cold doors. when these electric motors begin to open or close past their stop points, the motor try to continue to open and close itself properly, thus fourth its tapping all the time. to see which one it is, turn the heater control to cold and slowly to hot. most of the time, its the heater door. if not, do the same with the vent control. the problem is common withe the GM SUV's.

ive had this problem the loud tapping noise if properly you have the wrong oil in the engine the lifters only have a very small hole in for the to get in so if it to thick it cant get in causing the slapping noise.
