If the noise sounds like a diesel engine, knocking until the engine warms up, more than likely it's one of the rods/rod bearing. Unfortunately, if that is the case the engine is running on borrowed time. You'll be lucky if you get 2000 miles before total engine failure; I wouldn't recommend taking it on any long trips.
It would need to be serviced by a professional, they need to check the rods, rocker arms, lifters, and the timing chain for the cause.

When I start the car there's a loud sqeeking noise that goes away after 1 minute 2003 es 330


if it was mine, I would buy some "fan belt dressing spray" and spray my fan belts or have them adjusted. first spray them once, if sound stops a few days, have the tension adjusted. if spray does not work the first time, this is not the problem.

The engine in my automatic '91 Integra intermittently makes a loud squeaking noise...it sounds to be coming from the left side of the car under the hood. It is not the fan/fan belt, as the noise...


are you sure its not your fan belts? because if fan belts are not turning, it means that the engine is off. check if the tension in your fan belts are still ok. if not, have it re tensioned. if noise is still present, have it changed.

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where


The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

Loud ticking noise on startup


I would have you oil pressure checked. The oil pump or bearings could be going out. The lifter noise on this car usually will go away faster then 5 minutes. I think the noise is lasting a little to long.

Loud air intake engine noise on startup


I would guess it is the electronic fan clutch. It will cause the fan to run too fast (very loud) and the light will come on sometimes.

Noise when car is started


Sounds like the starter stays "sticked"on... Check the starter relay or after the sound goes away touch the starter for heat. If its too hot it means it stays on working even when the engine is allready running...
