Loud clacking noise coming from the top right side in my grand vitara 2001 v6 i changed oil and filter the noise disappear and came back the next day i changed oil and filter but the noise kept on


you need to be more clear,
top right of body, top right of engine, transmission, axle?
what?>
noises are 99% not good, and not safe, do not delay find a competent
hands on ASE mechanic to look at car, even pay for Diagnosis only !
if the engine makes noise you do need to flat out say that.
if the engine makes noise, we can diagnose where and what it is.
there are tricks, to do that, but do not drive any engine that makes noise or invite total engine destruction. can be.
i can be . bad mounted accessories loose or just bad.
loose exh header clamp banging about (or gasket there)
or cam chain getting ready to lunch the engine. i have 2004 v6. can advise better. but you need to be clear.
you can drop belts off to see if noise stops, for 2min dead cold block.
you can pry exh parts to see of noise abates.
you can use a $5 HF stethoscope to listen to all parts, and hear if they are bad. so easy. good luck to you.

Engine is making loud knocking noise what does this means


could be various things wrong, could be bottom end big end bearing. you need to establish where the knock is ( top end or bottom end ). if it is big end thats knocking then its an engine change ( saves messing about ) or top end ( camshaft ) then its a mornings job. hope this helps

Theres a knocking noise we thought it was the tension pulley replaced it replaced serpentine belt replaced alternator the knocking continues its coming from this area of the engine top part


noises are difficult to track but since your's is on top, try this-CAREFULLY use a wooden handle (from a broom, or paint roller extension) and place the end against items on top of the engine-the other end, your ear. Be aware of the moving pulleys and the belt, take your time-you can isolate the noise this way, and plan your next step.

Engine knocking noise in 2000 saab 9-3 SE?


It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped

Sounds like you didn't put the pushrods back in the proper locations. There are two different lengths in this engine and you may have one backwards

I have 2001 saab 95 2000. with 95000 miles. the engine seems quite noisy.


If I4 probably the timing chain and or the top end of the engine is going. Need to have it looked at ASAP. If V6 also not good. Mechanic ASAP. Could be noisy accessory like water pump, alternator, etc. Have mechanic take the outside belt off and run the engine and see if noise is still there. If so, engine, if not, accessory.

Engine knocks like diesel


A loud knocking sound could be a variety of things. On the top of the list is Bad connecting rod bearing and main bearings in the bottom end of the engine. Bad lifters may also be a problem. I had to burst your bubble but a loud noise in your engine, like you describe may be alot of pre-mature internal engine wear may be cause by lack of maintenance. You should have it check by a professional before you invest money into fixing it. Remember if the cost of the repairs exceeds that retail value of the vehicle. Its time for a new one. Good Luck
