SOURCE: clicking noise when accelerating

Hello, this noise may be a stuck or warped lifter. This also can be a warped wrist pin or a thrown bearing. I would check and see if your oil is sludgy for a lack of better words for starters. I would check your oil level as well. Your valve lash can be off as well and this can be thrown off by this causing the ticking noise you are talking about. Is the noise coming from the top or the bottom of the motor. I hope this helps. Thank You.

SOURCE: weird squeaking noise from under

You should have your belts checked for proper tension. If they're squeaking when the engine is at a low RPM then they are most likely loose and need to be tightened. However, that squeak may also be an indication that one of the tensioners in the belt's line may be wearing down. If that is the case the tensioner will need to be replaced since the bearing inside is worn down beyond the point where lubrication would be useful.

SOURCE: Changed plugs haven't checked codes

Did the vehicle have this problem prior to replacing plugs?If not check that you have the leads on the correct plugs.If you could supply the model I may be able to give you better details and diagnosis.Some of the later models had coils on each plug so they are all a little different to diagnose.
I hope this helps,or get back with some more info

Why would the sound of water flowing through a tube happen when we start to accelorate?


The sloshing noise may be caused from air in the cooling system.

If there's air in the system, it ends up in the heater core because it's the highest point in the cooling system. When you accelerate, the water pump spins faster pushing coolant into the heater core forcing the air out causing the sloshing noise.

To remove any air from the cooling system, get the engine up to operating temperature. With the engine idling loosen the upper radiator hose clamp. take a small flat bladed screwdriver and slip it between the upper radiator hose and the radiator hose neck. Allow the engine to idle until all that comes out from the radiator hose is coolant. Retighten the hose clamp.

1988 Toyota Camry LE clicking noise during acceleration


start with premium gas or injector cleaner, could be a low octane ping. this may be hard to diagnose with out hearing the noise so the other thing i would have you do is remove the belts and run the engine. sometimes when a bearing in an alternator, idler pulley, a/c compressor or belt tensioner goes bad they can make a clicking noise. try to listen if the noise is coming from the belt area, the transmission area or some other spot. spin all the pulleys with the engine off and wiggle them to see if any are bad

When I first start my truck I can hear a loud rattling sound coming from the back. Hear this sound also when I am in idle. Don't notice it when I pick up speed.


Check to see if one of your brackets holding the exhaust pipe has come loose. That'll make a rattling sound - especially if it towards the end by the tailpipe. When you're accelerating - more air is forced thru your exhaust at a faster rate, so it's not moving as much as when you're sitting still and the truck is just at an idle with less air/exhaust moving thru the tailpipe. If it's only making the noise while the truck is stationary & the noise stops one the truck is moving - that pretty much rules out anything to do withe the drive-train or suspension. You are sure the noise is from the back & not coming from under the hood? If under the hood - check your oil level ASAP.

My 2002 honda civic has a steady clicking noise that goes faster on acceleration. The noise is audible though just when idling as well. Any ideas?


Needs more oil or you spun a bearing. Also could knocking lifter. Try some engine restore if your oil is at the proper level. If that doesnt work it will be spun bearing or bad rocker. Have it checked out by local mechanic to be for certain.

Knocking noise from under hood


ok the lifters are making noise, make sure you are using the right oil for your temp zone. also add some lucas oil to your engine oil, it will quiet down the engine.

Clicking Noise Coming From Under The Hood


Have you checked your belts? A piece of belt may have come off and been slapping under your hood, and then fell off completely. While it was slapping, your computer would have detected the slow down of pulleys etc. and caused your engine light to come on. Then when the piece broke off, everything would be back to normal. Let me know!
