Check out the exhaust manifold.
When it heats up the metal expands and closes the gap on the leak a little. When it cools down the metal contracts and the leak is loud when you first start up.
What your describing sounds like a exhaust manifold leak.

Lifters sound like they are bleeding down. Try changing the oil with a multi viscosity oil. chk oil Pressure. If lifters are over adjusted the lifters can't pump up properly or retain the oil properly

How do i fix my 2001 740i bmw it makes a ticking sound win idleing


could possibly be a lifter tapping (Ticking) ,depending on how many miles the vehicle has on it might be time for lifters to be adjusted,most foreign overhead cam engines must have lifters adjuster periodically ,if you turn on the air its puts more of a load on the engine causing a louder sound (also check oil level an engine low on oil will start to tick too.. the more wear the engine gets the looser the lifters can get over time ,look in your service manual if you have one and see what the intervals are on lifter adjustment this can give you an idea.
possible only if
the ticking sound is coming from the top of the engine usually comes from under the vavle covers where the lifters are located,

2001 S Type V8- moderate to loud ticking sound in the engine (sounds like metal to metal contact). The ticking is constant, at idle or throttled. One mechanic thought it might be the #8 lifter spring?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. That is possible. More then likely, it is a associated with the valve lifter. If it was a rod, you would hear a knocking sound compared to the ticking sounds a bad lifter gives off. As far as which lifter it is, the only way to know for sure if by taking off the valve cover and examining the lifters. You are in the right area though. Check your lifters and you should fine what is causing the ticking. Put all your focus on that area. Your friend sounds like he knows what he is talking about so he may be able to help you work on it if you are not able.

2003 dodge ram has light tick for a minute at cold start then goes away


The 'light tick' is most probably a valve lifter. The valve lifters in the engine are hydraulic, and are pressurized by the engine's oil pump.
When the engine gets some mileage, say 60 or 70 thousand miles or more, the engine is just not as tight as it once was. What happens is that the lifter loses its pressure when the engine is not running, because there is some wear. When you start the engine, the lifter takes a few moments to pressurize, and makers a ticking noise until it does. The 'ticking' is the sound of the valve being hit by the push rod, which is being pushed by the lifter. Once the lifter is pressurized, the 'ticking' sound stops. This is a very common thing for engines, it will eventually happen to nearly every one.
Sometimes, thin, old oil can cause this. If you have not changed the oil/filter in a while, you should do it now.

This is nothing to really worry about right now, but it is a sign of engine wear. Just be sure to run the proper oil in the engine, and do all the proper maintenance.

I have a 2000 chevy monte carlo. when it is cold outside and i start the car, it makes a loud ticking or vibrating noise. once the engine has warmed, the car is quiet and rides perfectly. what could be the...


Could be a number of things, but if it just sounds like a heavy lifter tick I have a bunch of chevys that do the same thing including a 2009 sierra. Gm delaler says its normal for these engines to do this because of carbon build up. Not the answer I wanted to hear about a brand new truck, but Ive got the same answer from other dealer techs on other gm cars as well. If it does not sound like a lifter it could be one of the bearings in a pulley starting to go bad.

My car ticks sometimes. I have gotten a oil change and continue to check the oil and it still ticks. Pretty loud sometimes.


maybe a hydraulic lifter or a central bearing.... do you hav trouble accelarating at all? if its they hydraulic lifter, you will be fine for about 90k miles and even then nothing serious will happen, its just annoying. if its the central bearing on your motor, then you will have anywhere from 0-3000 miles left until your engine shuts down on you and your car stops moving. for me it's the hydraulic lifter witch triggered the knock sensor, which is there to detect knocks for oil related problems but unfortunaetly picked up my knocking too and thus went into its "energy saving" mode and slowed accelaration down ALOT in order to protect my motor. of course since it was a hydraulic lifter, this was pointless to me. if this is your case just take it to a mechanic and pay $40 to get the knock sensor unplugged. this won't solve the knocking itself but it will allow the car to accelarate at w/e speed you want. THIS IS NOT the solution to every knocking/ticking problem. there are MANY different ones out there so the best way is to get it checked out by a mechanic.
