SOURCE: Loud ticking/knocking/rattling sound when I start/accelerate

hi is it miss-firing as it sounds like a knocking noise can be anything but if you can feel it on the accelerater pedal then the noise sounds like its on the inlet valve side which would transfere the noise up the throttle body where the accelerater is located it could be something as simple as a tappet come loose to a burned valve you need to have a look do a compression test and take the rocker cover off see if theres anything come loose yates210456

SOURCE: Loud knocking noise from engine

A loud low knock? And it sounds like a disel now, sounds like one of your rod bearings is going bad. Basically, unless you want to put a new motor in it or have the one in it rebuilt, the only thing you can do is drive it till it blows. Sorry to be the one to give you bad news like this, but your motor is old. Parts are worn out. You either have to freshen it up or let it die.

SOURCE: 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)

SOURCE: loud knocking or tapping sound when engine is cold

Take our oil pan off from under your car and there should be 4 to 5 covers over a rod bearing. wiggle each one of them and find out which one is loose. take that cover off of the one that is wiggling and get the rod bearing out. order a new one from auto zone and replace it. The knocking in your motor can end up where you will need a whole new motor. so get it done before its to late.

I got a Honda CRV last month, milage 88,440 when bought but now 90,250. Its already shorting engine oil. Am afraid I don't want the engine to knock. What do I do? Could it be the type of oil am using?

Best thing to do is change the engine oil a oil filter, use a good brand oil , 10w30 in winter and 20w40 in summer. It pays to change the oil and filter every 5000 km. if the motor is in good condition you should not have to top up between oil changes unless there is a oil leek or the motor is worn.

(1999 Honda Passport) I have a knock in my engine, it is getting to be very loud and I have been told I have a lifter out. I bought the car about a month ago from a family friend who didn't need it...

Dude.. Your looking at needing a new engine. There are no lifters in a dual overhead cam engine. There are only rockers. If you have a "kncok" its more than likely a rod. That means new engine.

If you killed the engine by not adding oil, fixing the rod now is not an option. You have damaged all of the rod and main bearings. Its only a matter of time before the others fail as well.

I have a 2004 Dodge Durango 4.7. About 3 months ago I replaced the oil pump, but believe it was the oil pick up valve that was the problem. 2 days ago, the engine began knocking loudly the entire time it...

Try using a MOPAR oil filter...These cheap after market filters are allowing the oil to drip down into the pan and there is none in the top of the motor on cold starts.

How do you replace a clutch cable to a daewoo matiz

Hi, it must be done from underneath (unless you remove the entire engine), hoist up the car and work from underneath.
Drain Gear box oil.
Remove wheels, disconnect bolts and swing out wheel hubs, remove CV Joint drive shafts (both sides).
Disconnect two get change levers
Disconnect clutch cable.
Then replace it with the new one ...

Take care

Just bought a 1999 mazda mx5 2 days ago and found it has a knock type rattle in the engine that lasts about 3 seconds on a cold start. Regards Bruce. ps cars done 160,000ks.

it seems the oil is too thick. The previous owner or the dealer may have added thick oil treatment. And the pump has to work extra hard to get it circulating. Change the oil and filter. Use 10w40 oil when refilling. do not overfill. It has many miles too , so it could also be that the oil pump is beginning to get clogged.

Do I need to change brake fluid, clutch fluid and power steering fluid in my 2000 Honda ex 2Dr. coupe? It has 97,000 miles on it.

Unless you have a record of these fluids being changed in the past 18 months you should definitely change them. These fluids will degrade over time and need to be changed at appropriate intervals.
You should also flush the engine radiator and cooling system and replace with new coolant to the manufacturer's specs unless this has been done in the past 18 months.
Also ensure you change the engine oil and filter frequently (certainly more frequently than the manufacturer maximum interval specs which is based on optimum driving conditions which does not reflect reality.)

Frequent fluid changes = cheap preventative maintenance.

Brake fluid - every 2 years minimum
Clutch fluid - every 2 1/2 years minimum
PS fluid - every 3 years
Coolant flush and change - every 2 years
Engine oil - every 3500-4000 miles or 5 months minimum whichever is sooner
Oil filter - every second oil change.

When i start my 98 daewoo laganza it makes a loud knocking noise near the clears after a while when it warms up.two weeks ago it seamed that the head gasket went but i used chemi-weld and it...

if you had a head gasket starting to go and you put a chemical seal in the system(is not permenent) you stand the chance of water still being in your oil. change the oil and see what happens. they are hydraulic tappets and need good clean oil.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
