1998 JGC Quadra Drive problems

My 1998 JGC Quadra Drive was going down the highway, it started making a loud ticking or knocking, dropped speed while still holding gas down and started jerking and then eventually died. Would not start again. All gauges were showing normal and the check engine light never did come on. Any ideas what it could be?

    YES WE HAD PUT OIL IN IT BEFORE THE TRIP

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    OK I'll ask both questions again....Does the engine turn when you turn the key? (Or, if you try to turn it by hand) And yes...is there any oil in it (now...I know you filled it when you started out) Answering both questions will either point to a seized engine or another less devastating problem.

Is there any oil in it? Sounds like your valves were sticking until it completely fried everything.

    Was there oil in it after it stopped? We are just trying to help you here, but you have to answer the question. Doesn't matter if you put oil in it before the trip. We are talking about after it stalled.

Kia optima engine ticking


sounds like lower end bearing damage (connecting rod) when oil level drops at interstate speed a connecting rod bearing will seize very quickly thus causing the bearing to spin in the rod and enlarge clearance . that is the knocking sound you here .

Some times it has a loud knoking when you start it up! oil presure good.


If this sound only happens when you first start it in the morning, and then goes away, then you are experiencing either lifter ticking, or piston slap. These both are fairly normal for this vehicle when it's getting higher in the miles, and before the oil gets to all the parts. Once you shut the engine off, the oil drains down, and it has to recirculate some of it. This takes a couple of seconds sometimes, and you hear this knocking sound when it happens, especially if it's cold out, or you are using thicker oil than recommended.
If the knocking sound continues after the vehicle has been running, then you need to have someone check it out for sure, because you could have a connecting rod knocking. This means that your engine is about to go, and you should not drive it.

Vibrations, tranny slipping, and engine tick


Sounds like you may have a worn out CV joint and the clicking may stop with an oil change. Good Luck

Power steering problem when moving slow or rpm drop


no it is the power steering pump. the pump is worn so at low rpm or low speeds it is real tough to steer. but when the rpm is picked up the steering gets easier.

Also check belt tension but at high rpm speeds the belt would slip and squel real loud. so i would point the problem to the power steering pump.

hope this fixs ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
