Most likely it could be a vavle or it could be something with the exhast. Hope for the exhast. Replacing vavles are costly.

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier and it has a knocking noice coming from the engine i checked the timing it is good i have to crank it a little before it will start any answers

Can't tell for sure, there are a lot of different kinds of engine noises. For your year of Cavalier they are common for a knock noise coming from the front timing cover area. It is caused from the timing CHAIN rattling on the tensioner. It is generally caused by lack of oil changes and the oil gets very thick. There is a very small passage that allows oil to enter the timing chain case, and if its thick or dirty it doesn't. Best to have it diagnosed to what area or possible cause. It will also cause the engine to labor and not start immediately.

I got a 2005 Chevy Cavalier, after forgetting to change my oil and it running low, I started to get a knocking noise in the top part of my engine. We checked the lifters, they were fine, what else could it...

Top of the engine could be a piston wrist pin, or a broken or stuck ring-try adding some Marvel Mystery oil in the crank case, if that does not work, go with a heavier oil when doing an oil change-are you certain it is not a rod knock, because that is the most common result of running with very low oil-no matter what, I hope it is not as bad as it sounds.

1995 chevy lumina makes terible loud noise like rods knocking when started. It has oil and water in it. what could be the problem?

it could still be a rod even if its full of oil. carbon build up inside the engine can cause a knocking sound but its probably a rod. does it go away after it starts?? if it only does it while starting, it could be leaking water in a cylinder after you cut it off and the next time you're cranking it, its trying to compress the water

Loud mechanical knock in engine 2.8 a4 Audi 1996

it's probably a rod knocking and that's never too good. get it checked out with a mechanic soon. Some auto parts sell stuff to stop that so you can go there and ask they usually help you, but it won't solve the problem it will just stop the noise for a little bit.
