Sentra rattle in engine

If this vehicle was driven without oil, the rattle or knock you hear is more than likely a damaged main bearing or rod bearing...sounds like its time for a QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL to listen to your engine run and give you his opinion... Good Luck!!!

when oil is cold it is thicker and stays [on]coats metal as oil warms up it thins out and flows better[makes it thinner will hear ticking] sounds like a bad lifter or even camshaft lobe problem ,could also have a problem with a loose or out of adjustment rocker arm

Jeep 360 rattle sound at idle in park

it could be a wrist pin, and im not sure if those amc's had hydraulic lifters but sometimes with old lifters when the oil pressure is lower at an idle the lifters arnt filling up all the way so they develope a little valve lash, and when the rpms are raised the oil pressure raises and fills the lifters. you could try chasing the noise down with an automotive stethoscope.

Ticking noise from engine

The most common reason is the hydraulic valve lifters. The short term fix is to

a) replace the oil and filter if this has not been done recently.
b) Rev the engine to 3000 rpm and hold for 30 seconds. This pumps up the lifters and helps clear old oil.
c) do this 2-3 times until the clicking stops.

The longer term fix is to replace all 16 lifters.

Other more expensive reasons are
a) a big end bearing. This sounds more like a hammer on anvil hit, and its louder if you blip-rev the engine. Rev to say 2000 and back off slightly and the noise stops. The fix is a replacement engine or engine rebuild.

I have a jag x type 3.0 sport,at around 2-3 thousand rpm the engine makes a rattling noise but clears higher up the rev range,the car was low on oil when i got it,just replaced new oil and filter but the...

Those model lifters are quite notorious for clogging up with hardened oil as they ran a bit hot... my suggestion would be to service all your lifters or replace them up to you and make sure all clearances are correct at tappets and valves :)
Good Luck :)

When idling, there is a rattling noise coming from the engine,but when rpms exceed 2000 the noise is gone. what could it be?

A very good chance you have several valve lifters failing. At the lower RPM there is less oil pressure, as you increase the engine speed the oil pressure will to increse which is then able to hold open those lifters that are beginning to leak/fail.

I hope this may have assisted you.

Tapping noise at 3000 rpm on 4.0 litre 1996 ford explorer.Valves are quiet at idle and up to 3000 rpm

have the oil pressure checked. i believe the specification is 40-60 psi at 2000 rpm. sticking valves and lifters can cause valve train noise. weak vavle springs can also be the problem. try running an engine cleaner such as gunk motor flush at your next oil change. follow directions specifically. obtain a product designed to aid in cleaning deposits on valves.
