What year and what make is this car? How many miles does it have on it? The noise can be a lifter or push rod but I need to know what you have.

Saturn ion problems


Hi, I recently bought a 2005 Saturn Ion and all of a sudden when I accelerate or at least attempt to, I hear "knocking" noise. It gets louder as I press harder on the gas pedal, what does this mean??? Also, my coolant light is on as well, however when we checked the fluids, it was full..will these repairs be pretty costly? And is it even worth getting fixed?

The cars making a loud ticking noise when i press on the gas


If the noise gets louder with the engine rpm's, it is probably a lifter tapping. I would check the oil level. If it in low ( 2 or more quarts) you may be lucky and adding oil to the proper level may eliminate the noise. Good luck Dano

"clicking" noise in engine


SOUNDS like you have a tappet tapping or a spark jumping or a big end on the conrod going on to the crankshaft worn or a small end on conrod that holds the piston to conrod .. BUT it all depends on what type of tapping it is So the best thing to do is to go into the garage and ask a them to have a listen and give you a quote and then tell me what the answer was so we can pin point the noise as gessing can cost you a lot of money and it isent worth it .
Let me know how you get on . Ron

Knockin noise in engine


Could be a lifter getting sticky. What engine, amount of mileage, and how often does it get serviced, and type of oil used, can all play a part in that.

Light tapping noise coming from engine


this is a very common problem or so i have heard mine has been doing it for two years and its still fine. what i do is buy some gunk oil treatment or i hear seafoam works good too. put it in 5 min before oil change and it will clean the build up in oil passages and free the sticky valves then use mobil one full synthetic oil its much better plain oil wont help it ive tried. and the noise will go away untill its time to do it again. i usually get 4-5 months noise free then it will start again.
