Ticking noise from engine upon start up but eventually goes away oil pressure gauge doesn't move at all when started or shut off. Gauge stays all the way past 80! Help me please!


Since changing the oil sender made no change, dash gauge may be dead. Hook up cheap mechanical gauge to see what is really going on. Ticking when first started is probably a lifter and may not be a big problem. How many miles on engine?

Mitsubishi l200 2.5 did 08 very noisy engine, sounds very tappety is this normal ?


It may be worn out valve lifters that are inside the engine. If you have more than 6,000 miles on the oil, valve lifters could run noisier. Changing to a high mileage type of motor oil may quite down the valve lifters noise somewhat. Synthetic oil used during the summer months could make it noisier too. If you can hear the noise while driving the car, it is not normal. Upon acceleration, if it gets noisier, you will be needing a valve job in the not to distant future.

Rod knock upon start


Not sure on model but to me sounds like its a dodgey valve lifter when the seals start to go they cannot hold the oil and when there under pressure they basically empty them selves hence when you turn the engine off and restart you get a rattle sound untill the valve fills again as long as the cars running ok leave it untill you have to replace them unless there easy to do sone are sone are a pain

Will intake gasket leak make the lifters tic when first starting


I dont think and intake gasket will cause lifter noise. It may cause a rough idle and or a miss at idle on cold start up . as the engine warms up the miss or rough idle will decrease . As for the lifter noise this could be cause by the lifter bleeding down or poor oil presure . On your model of engine there is no adjustment on the rocker arms for lifter noise . They are a 0 lash type .

Rattling noise when cold start. noise dissapear when engine warm up .2000 Ford taurus SE


You problem is most likely just lifter noise. This is common with a lot of Ford engines with self adjusting lifters. Although lifter noise is bothersome it doesn't pose a serious problem. Unless your engine starts to miss or your gas mileage drops way off lifter noise is just an annoying problem.
I would recommend that you add some Sea Foam Engine Treatment($6-$8) to your oil. This is not an oil treatment it's more of an engine cleaner. If this works you'll need to add it every 2nd or 3rd oil change.
If this doesn't take care of the problem then depending on your engine you may have adjustable rockers that would allow you to remedy the problem. If not, your options are limited to living with it or replacing the lifters and possibly other valve train parts.

What would cause a Ticking noise in a jeep grand cherokee


Most time a ticking noise is caused by a valve lifter malfunction or a worn pivot on a rocker arm. if the noise appears to be coming from the valve cover (inside) that's usually where the problem is. Depending upon which engine you have the repair procedure will vary. (consult a haynes or chilton manual)
Before taking anything apart though many times a lifter noise will respond to a good engine additive like marvel oil or lucas engine conditioner. Neither one will harm the engine and it may quiet it down for you!
If you think my answer helped, please rate it. If you have another question or did not understand the answer, just ask.

My Crossfire clatters upon start up. Once the


I also own a '04 Crossfire and the clatter upon start up is very common. Although I believe it is the lifters, I've been told that the Mercedes fuel injectors are the main culprit to the ticking. But like you I have been agitated by this since buying the car. Recently mine went from just a ticking to a definite top end knocking and am being told today by the dealer that it is the lifters sticking. Don't know if a valve job and lifters will resolve the initial ticking, but I have my fingers crosses considering the $1018.00 price quote.
