Making ticking on cylender head


Ticking sound on top of engine usually points to sticking valves. Run through a good fuel treatment for a couple of fill up, it may just clean up some of the carbon and gunk, have the valves checked. Fuel treatment works folks, will even keep many of your sensors in good working order. Use premium gas when you do the treatment..

My geo metro egine have a ticking sound


If you have adjusted your valves and the ticking persists then try changing your exhaust manifold gasket. A leaking exhaust manifold gasket will often make a loud ticking sound.

Engine ticking sound when engine is cold. sound is much quieter after driving for 10 minutes or so.


The ticking sound when the engine is cold could indicate worn lifters. It could also be caused by a timing belt slap when the engine is cold, when the belt heats up the sound goes away. If you have low oil pressure when you hear the ticking sound it could indicate a bad oil pump. Another possibility is valve lash when it is cold - all of these conditions will disappear when the engine heats up. The ticking is more likely to come from the valve train or the lifters - unfortunately these are not items you can easily check on your own unless you are a skilled mechanic. It is better to take it to a mechanic, tell them what you think it may be and ask them to look specifically at those items.

Mercedes e230 1998. cold starting.


Mercedes has a cold start valve to spray extra fuel to assist the ignition when the temperature is cold. This is the problem with the cold start valve is not opened when it needed. There are 2 possible causes: 1- The valve is bad. 2- The coolant temperature sensor is bad.
The valve part is expensive and labor is not cheap. The first economic way to address is to replace the coolant temperature sensor. This sensor gives a different resistance reading as temperature changed. When it is bad, it give an erratic reading at cold temperature so the ECM could not recognize to give a signal to open the Cold start valve.

Mitsubishi mirage 1.5 dohc, ticking noise when started from cold, goes away after 2 mins??


If it's not a loud ticking noise, it could be your lifters or valve pushers, which would mean your oil is too thick to get there when it's cold. Change your oil viscosity to a lower indice (if it's 10W30 go with 5W30 for example) and let me know what happens.
