    Could very well be a big problem. Have the oil pressure checked with a gauge. These engines have a plastic windage tray that breaks sometimes and the pieces plug up the inlet screen of the oil pump. You may need to remove the oil pan to remedy this.

You will have to check your oil pressure with an oil pressure gauge. it could be a problem with your oil pump ( or a blocked gauze on the oil pump) and the tappets noise is related to the oil pressure.

Yes it is related, don't drive it. First thing you should do is install a new oil filter even if it isn't time for an oil change.

How do I stop rattly tappet noise?


Rick you don't say what vehicle it is. I don't believe mixing oils will affect tappet noise unless one of the two oils was way too thin a grade.

If all else is OK, rattly tappets aren't generally a big worry unless you also get hard starting, which indicates the valve timing is way off. I've had vehicles in which valve noise was factory standard LOL.

You could try an oil change with one grade heavier.

The rattle might also indicate that the upper cylinder head is being starved of oil, either due to low pressure, or sludging. You could get oil pressure measured to eliminate that possibility.

After all else if you want to go further you could get the valve lash adjusted, but in some motors it is a helluva job, and in a van, it is more difficult.

Knocking knoise under 1500 rpm


If your car has hydraulic tappets and low low oil pressure at engine speeds then it can make tapping noises. Oil pressure is needed to maintaine the tappets clearances, excessive cleaeances will produce noises.

My Polo 1.4 is making a tapid noise, what can I do to fix it? Also my interior fan, when it's on 4 you can hardly feel the air.


clean the pollen filter ,as for engine then change the oil for a detergent oil and also put a couple of squirts of washing up liquid in with the oil as well and run it around for a week then the hydraulic tappet noise should stop then make sure you change the oil every 6000miles with a oil filter every third oil change ,your oil has beeen left too long and its gummed up the hydraulic tappets

A 2006 chevy 4.7 v6 engine makes initial tappet noise at first startup. engine has 35500 orig. mi. on engine


Try using an oil additive designed to loosen tappets with your next oil change. Maybe a change of oil brand can help. Changing out the offending tappet is the ultimate repair, but most expensive.

1995 isuzu Rodeo engine noise


valve guides worn and tappet adjustment required, can check tappet adjustment first to see slightly better before removing heads and getting valve guides repaired/replaced on heads common problem
if raise revs to 1500-2000rpm and hold does clatter come and go come and go (valve guides) if there all the time tappet clearance issue
if there only under load (1st rev up) for a couple of times then stops possible big end bearing
all these are common for this engine
