Rattling noise coming from oil pan checked all areas with a stethoscope, seams to be loudest here any ideas?


Clacking or rattling from that area could be due to a connecting rod knock, or the oil pan could just be acting as an amplifier for a sound coming from somewhere else in the engine.

Bmw 323i e46 making a noise coming somewhere from the engine i think


You will need to provide a little more info before someone can assist - when does it make the noise? All the time, only under acceleration, when turning left, etc? Can you locate it to the front or rear of the engine or to a specific component? There are mechanic stethoscopes that help with this. Can you describe the sound? A squeel, knocking, grinding? Good luck!

Engine noise. Hi guys! I am from Russia, so first


First, your English is fine - better than many people whose primary language is English. I watched the youtube video and although the noise is not easy to identify, it does sound like a metal gear or roller noise. You said that you replaced the timing belt, but did you replace the belt tensioner? Also, you replaced the head, but did you replace the camshaft? I would suggest that you purchase an automotive stethoscope (similar to a doctor's stethoscope) and try to determine exactly where the noise is coming from. I can tell that the noise is coming from something that moves at the same rate as the engine RPMs, so that eliminates many items such as the manifolds that do not move. If you have power steering, check the power steering pump. Another possibility that could be the source is the flywheel and starter area. Sorry to hear you're having this problem and that you spent a lot of money unsuccessfully trying to fix it. Give the stethoscope a try and see if you can localize the noise. Good luck.

Its making sorta a tapping noise not really a knock, got good oil pressure not over heating its running good and the knock/tap is not getting any worse. Its sounds like its coming from the top end of the...


Could be a bad hydraulic lash adjuster. Use a mechanics stethoscope to find from which head it comes. Then you will have to remove the valve cover from that side (cold engine) and feel each adjuster if its spongy. They should all be hard. You will need to rotate the crankshaft with a socket on the balancer bolt to be sure that each valve is closed at a time.

The engine makes noise (knocks) when it runs.


Could be a lot of things, but engine bearings will knock in different ways.
A rod bearing knocks under acceleration. a main bearing knocks under decelaration.

wrist pins can knock in the piston

worn valve train components can raise a racket also.

A mechanics stethoscope can help locate the source.

I assume you mean low idle speed 500 rpm. Genarally a tapping noise comes from the valve train, and a knocking noise comes from the crankshaft connecting rods. The way that a mechanic will narrow it down is to use a mechanics stethoscope. You can get one pretty cheaply at an auto parts store. Put the metal end of the scope on a part of the engine and listen for noise. On the other hand, if your car is idling at 5000 rpm, it would also be making ALOT of noise.
