Hello Mike,well let me tell you that is a really bad symptom this can be caused for not doing the oil change in the right intervals creating sludge (gum inside the engine) plugging the oil ducts everywhere causing bad lubrication in the engine recommendation remove oi pan and the oil screen clean it really good with degreaser or brake fluid (find it in the closest autoparts store) then make sure to put 5w30 oil high milage DO NOT PUT 20W50 OIL ON IT the thickest the worst it can get

SOURCE: egr valve insufficient flow detected

You probably pulled a code p0401, insufficient egr flow. Your DPFE sensor is more than likely at fault. There has been a lot of trouble with these sensors. Then reset CEL or disconnect battery for 5 minutes.

If cleaning the engine does not work, replace the oil press. sending unit. These senders on Jeeps have had a history of problems where they will work one day and not the next day.

SOURCE: 88 ford ranger 2.9 low oil pressure

i just bought a BII with famous tick..........oil pressure light came on (no gauge). I installed mechanic gauge and showed 5 psi so I decided to replace oil pump. Pulled pan off (not fun!) the pickup tube was clogged and the was part of the timing chain tensioner in pan. I then pulled timing cover off only to find chain streched and the chain guide and tensioner pretty much gone. I think tick was chain slap..........will know for sure in a couple days.

Ford Taurus 2000 3.0 24 valves tapping oil light stay on like to know if the camshaft synchronize will be able to fix this problem or the oil pump

Low oil level, check the oil. Oil change needed, oil is worn and is not thick as it should be, drain and replace oil/filter. Oil filter clogged, or at last, it could be a weak or faulty oil pump or stripped oil pump driveshaft.

I was driveing down the road in my 2003 ford f150 and all the lights went dim along with the guages going down like it was going to die so i gave it some gas then everything went back to normal later when...

this sounds like bad battery conections. take a part the terminals and clean off the corrosion. more than likely the is some corrosion that is hidden and once everything is clean and tight it should fix your problem.

I recently changed my oil and a couple of days later a tapping (Cherping) sound is continously sounding. It isn't the belt. what can it be

Check your oil level. Sometimes dry pushrods will squeek before they break. The noise comes from where the rocker arm meets the pushrod. Or if you are lucky, the PCV valve is not tight into the valvecover. The PCV valve can also make this sound on its own.

Check your oil filler cap for tightness. When checking your dipstick, start the car without the dipstick in place and see if the noise disappears.

1997 Ford Taurus won't start

Hi i may be able to help with the problem, it sounds like you have a charging or battery issue. first i you need to check the battery connections, then find out if you have any charging problems, you will need to take the vehicle to an advance auto parts to have the charging and starting system checked. it may be something as simple as a bad connection or an alternator.

Clacking/Flapping sound coming from engine compartment

Best thing to do is take it in to see if the oil pump is working properly. A oil pump not pumping properly will lead to what people call a "dry valve tap". The moving parts in the engine will make noise when there is no lubrication happening. Especially the parts that are moving the valves. That why they call it " dry valve tap".
Has the engine light stayed on at all?

Noise coming from engine

are you getting oil pressure when the car is warm have you changed the oil recently or is it overdue if you have an oil pressure gauge on your dash check to make sure you are getting propper oil pressure as this is what it sounds like you are losing oil pressure and your valves are tapping.

2006 Ford Taurus

I would have the front brakes checked and from what you are telling me you may have a warped rotor I do not know how many miles are on the car some cars have a reset after the oil change has been done to turn off the check engine light but if it keeps coming on take it to autozone and they will put it on a tester for free and then you will know what needs to be done
