No. The valves are hydraulic. Pour about a coke tin amount of diesl in with the engine oil. Run the enginr to normal teperature. Drain the oil and refill with new oil. It sounds like a lazy or blocked follower. Once you do this it should disappear.

SOURCE: 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...

If the noise is from the top off the engine it is most likely a failed or failing lifter.

Car wont start


sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.

Turns over then cuts off


Clunking noise sounds like a piston to crankshaft problem. You can do a compression test to determine the bad cylinder.

Clunking noise then van stopped, wont start, may be a problem with transmission as clutch play was very little. Engine turns over but it sounds as though the engine is not engaging. All the fly wheels and...


Ouch, sounds as if the timing belt may have failed or slipped (now mechanically out of time). I tend to think this as you mentioned it was running and then shut down with clunking noise (not pistons hitting valves I hope)
Remove the distributor cap and crank the engine over, if the rotor does not move the belt broke. The belt drives the cams which inturn drives the distributor.

Pleas let me know your results so I may possibley assist further.

Thanks,
Tom

My car makes clunking noises from the engine area but when the clutch is down at a stand still theirs no clunking just the engine ticking over. the battery light is lit staticly on the display too.


the battery light being on is not normal, this could be what is causing the clunking noises, whenever my battery light comes on i try and race home as fast as i can so i wont be stranded, because i know im running on pure battery power and it will only run for another 15 miles before she dies completely. Before she dies the car is making all kind of noises, clunking backfiring., so your alternator is probably going bad or your serpentine belt is very loose.
