DEPENDING ON HOW LOUD IT IS IT COULD JUST BE THE HYDRAULIC LIFTERS. THE NOISE STOPS WHE THE MOTOR WARMS UP AND OIL GETS TO THE TOP END OF YOUR ENGINE. THAT IS NORMAL.

    ALSO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING THE RECOMENED OIL FOR YOUR VEHICLE. AND CHANGE IT EVERY 3 MONTHS OR 3000 MILES WHICH EVER COMES FIRST.

Engine ticking


Hi, what you mean with ticking noise. In my understanding like you talking about tapet noise. First try to change your engine oil. If the noise still coming you have problem with hydraulic lefters.

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...


Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Ticking in a 1997 Expedition


May be the timing chains have worn guides

Big job,I wouldn't go there

Have a shop diagnose for a fee you can
agree on.

No disasembly though or you committed to
something you didn't authorize

Spark Plugs are preventative maintenance

I like to do at around 3 years 30 to 40,000 mile
They don't fix anything
New plugs take stress off ignition coils or modules

I have a 100 series landruiser which is making a bad ticking type noise on start up ,it sounds like it is coming from the water pump or the air con compressor but not really sure.It stops making noise...


try this,when you change the engine oil and use a flushing oil before you finally fill with 10/40 semi synthetic,add stp/wynns oil additive or molyslip. the ticking is possibly a sticky cam follower(they are self adjusting with oil pressure)the water pump/air con comp cannot "tick"but they can squeel.....

First start car ticking noise after 5 minutes it


This is the tappets on the top of the engine ticking cause they havent got any oil yet. When you first start it take a few secs to get the oil to the top of the engine...It is a warning of impending trouble, but it may or may not be quite a ways off...

Ticking Noise in 01 Chevy Silverado 2500


if noise is higher pitched and coming in on valve time...(2wice for every revolution of motor..ie: faster)...then upper end pressure is down due to sludge, wear , lifter failure, valvespring failure,rocker stud lifting out of cylinder head (kinda common) cam bearings failing (very rare)..oil pump bypass stuck open..and a few other possibilities... respond and we will go over lower end sound (deeper ,slower) and see what identifies your issues .... miles

Ticking noise while car is running or idling


maybe is the air compresor and that's the noise that you hearing. Put the air in off if the noise stop, your problem is the compresor.
