SOURCE: maintanance light is on

The ticking sound is probably an out of adjustment valve.This can cause performance problems if it is severe enough. Go to www.georgebelton.com/6g.civic.tech/valve.clearance/index.php for step by step instructions w/ detailed photographs for this repair. The timing belt is one of those type of things that works 100% or not at all. At 126,000 miles I recommend having the belt(s) replaced. It is fairly inexpensive to have done and will extend the life of your vehicle 2 fold. If you belt fails it will probably destroy your motor so it is money well spent. Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: car will not start, turning key only a tick tick sound 93 accord

The most likely cause of your problem is your alternator and/or battery. You can have them tested at most any auto parts store for free.
One of these two things will fix this type of problem 90% of the time.

SOURCE: changing 10-40 to 20-50 oil

The use of a 20-50 oil will not harm your vehicle,,,neither will the use of lucas additive. BUT, have you determined the reason for excessive oil consumption? (leaks vs burn off) Even what appears to be a small drip can use more oil than you think (ever leave a container under a dripping faucet?) Have you had a compression or leakdown test done on the engine to determine the extent of cylinder/ring wear? You may find that much of the oil consumption is due to dried out valve stem seals (far less expensive than a rebuild) In any case, using a good grade of oil will delay the wear process. Using a poor quality lubricant will accelerate it.
Poor quality lubricants have a high parafin content which forms sludge and are prone to burnoff even in a well running engine. This forms carbon in the ring grooves and causes the rings to stick and lowers compression as well as permitting more oil into the combustion chamber. That's something you don't want or need in a worn engine.

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor


Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

Hi I'm Wayne. Pls help me with my GA13DS engine


Check for a bad rocker arm and correct valve adjustment. Make sure cam timing is correct. Never try to retard or advance the cam timing.

When do i replace the timing belt on my seat inca van 2004


Those belts are usually supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles. Behind the timing belt cover is your water pump. They can make noise when going out, but usually a timing belt makes no noise, just breaks. If you ever have to change the water pump, it is always suggested to change the timing belt as well. VS. If your timing belt gets stretched, it will make a bit of a noise, but your car will start running poorly at the same time. Hope I was helpful

2010 Honda Civic LX light ticking noise at Idle. 49000 miles on it. No Performance problems observed, But I was curious what the noise might be, And if Autozone can check the codes for anything wrong...


I doubt a "ticking" would cause a code unless it was something like a lifter sticking which may cause a misfire but your engine light would be on if this were the case. Now can you at least narrow down the area it is in like maybe one of the pulleys for your drive belt or does it seem to be in the engine itself. You can try taking the belt(s) off and starting the engine for a short time. If the "ticking" goes away without a drive belt(s) on it, then you need to find out what componant (alternator, A/C compressor, Power steering pump...you get the idea) is making the ticking noise. Codes are in most cases dealing with a sensor of some sort. Hope this helped you....

It sounds like a loose serpentine belt. Check the belt for cracking or frayed edges. It may need to be replaced or simply tightened.
If the sound is minimal or gone when the engine is idling, and you hear it whine when you step on the gas, then the belt is probably your issue.

BAD ENGINE NOISE RIGHT AFTER REPLACING TIMING BELT AND WATER PUMP


if poor performance was noticed right off the bat, the timing belt is not timed properly. this will cause lack of power, rough idle, pre ignition(little noisey), and rich exhaust.youre going to need to first, find a friend or someone whom you trust to do your automotive work.second youre going to need to start over by tearing it all down systematically and taking note of anything done wrong. third find reliable information on the timing marks for this vehicle. i hope for your sake nothing is broken. let me know how this turns out, ill be happy to help further if you need.

3.1L engine ticking noise


If you noticed any wear grooves on the rocker pivots, it could be that the rockers are worn. changer any that show obvious wear. Some movement of a rocker when not under tension is normal but should not be excessive. You can also check to see if any rockers have less travel than others by slowly turning engine by hand and measuring the travel on each (intakes may vary from exhaust, but should not vary from other similar ones) If any move far less than others it can be due to a collapsed or worn lifter, or worn cam lobe. Piston slap is a different issue and usually can be identified only by a good tech with lots of experience.

This a piston slap. GM recognised this problem years ago but instead of repairing 100,000 motors they call it "normal". If it goes away after warm up you should be ok to keep driving it.
