SOURCE: engine noises

I definitely agree with badmartian thats the same exact thing my trooper does. Our ticking was loud and obnoxious by the way embarassing when going through parking lots. Anyways I did some research and was thinking of a valve adjustment but cant since troopers have hydraulic lifters so the best way was to try to clean the gunk off these things. What I did was put heavier oil in the car 20w-50 but you can go with 10w-30 if your not to sure. Then add a bottle of Lucas Oil Stabalizer which runs around 7-8 dollars a bottle and a high mileage oil filter and that will seriously stop the ticking well it did for me for around 2000 miles and come back which means another oil change. Or you could do what I do and add another bottle of oil stabalizer not lucas maybe a smaller bottle like STP runs about 1-2 dollars and that should run your oil a bit longer. But yea when you change oil I suggest you adding Lucas Oil Stabalizer works great for me Im still using it and its cheap and you get alot of it for half the price of other ones. So yea good luck

SOURCE: 2003 rendezvous..ticking on cold start

I have had the same thing on my rendezvous the entire time I have owned it (at 82k right now). It has caused no problems for me, yet... and the dealer has told me that it is nothing.

SOURCE: Lifter ticking when I start my 1999 Chevy Tahoe

Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!

2009 Ford Flex when started first thing on a cold morning it ticks/knocs really really loud, once it warms up the ticking goes away to a very light tick. The dealership ruled out an exhaust manifold leak....


It does sound like a valve lifter problem to me also. It should be covered under warranty. It's a mechanical failure of a component of the drivetrain. Ask them to show you the specific exclusion if they say it's not a warranty problem.Powertrain warranty is 60 months/60,000 miles ( which ever comes first).

I just bought a 2008 Sienna w/ 44,000 miles. When the engine is cold, doesn't have to be really cold, I hear this ticking noise (not loud) when engine is under slight acceleration between 1500- 2000 rpm....


Sounds like you are describing lifter noise. Go to the car store and buy a pint of Berrymen's Chemtool. Next time the engine is cold, pour the Chemtool into the engine oil. Do your normal driving for the next few days or weeks until you have 150-200 miles (none of them should be highway miles) on the engine, then have the oil changed. Drive for 2000-3000 miles, and do the same thing all over again. Repeat this a couple of times. If the lifter loosens up, your good to go. If it doesn't, then it will have to be repaired by tearing into the engine.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.


It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive
