Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

1 Answer

Ticking, sounds like lifters.

I am trying to find this tick by process of elimination. suspect fuel pump if under hood. cannot locate noise area with hose to ear. the tick accels and decels with engine rpm. It comes and goes. but most comes. doesnt go away under specific conditions. i.e., load, temp, speed, rpm. but does go away sometime. The truck cuts out sometime, like stopped up fuel filter. found it. checked and was no help. about ready to junk motor and get another one. any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Jay

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,

Hi! So I have a 1990 Mitsubishi, Montero. I do know how to work on cars more than the average guy, sometimes more than my "mechanic"/ ex. Anyways I have a knocking/ ticking coming from the...


think your confusing a pinking or pre detonation of the fuel and hydraulic tappet or lifter ,a water pump bearing will whine ands start leaking as the water has gone through the seal into the bearing andf start leaking .Check the timing as it should ba about 6? BTDC static or with timing light on idle ,Now as for the valve lifter or tappets in my terminology then its a case of have a look and give a visual inspection as it could have a worn tappet causing the noist as sometimes the case hardening wears through and then it wears away so quick causing your noise

Ticking noise on a 2001 town and country is it really a lifter


Probably, but other things can cause what sounds like a tick as well. Early rod wear can sound a lot like a lifter tick. Sometimes even the transmission can develop a ticking in the area of the torque converter/pump. If there is no other apparent issues, chalk it up to old bones - after all you have 186K on it.

2004 Lincoln Navigator, Strange ticking noise coming from rear passenger 3 row area over wheel well some sort of computer box. only when turn ignition or vehicle running, sounds like clock ticking


This is caused by a blend door actuator on the rear a/c unit. There are 2 located on the case. Take it to a dealer and they will know what you are talking about.

Clicking/ticking noise under the hood?


It's called a lifter. It is not serious. Keeping your car under good maintenance should keep the noise down but you will always hear it until you get the lifters replaced. Or that is what i was told. I have had my 1988 Fox for ten years now and it has always made that noise. Don't worry. :)

Ticking noise from engine


You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.

Ticking sound on 2001 dodge grand caravan 135000mi


Turns out it was the water pump. The plastic impeller on the inside had broken in half- split almost right down the middle. there was just enough of the impeller remaining to attach to the shaft and pump water. Apparently, it was pumping enough to keep the temp under control. So, I never noticed it overheating. The piece that had broken off had gotten lodged in a recessed area inside the pump housing. The ticking noise was being generated as the intact half of the impeller rotated and hit the broken off half.

I narrowed down the problem by removing the belt and cranking the engine temporarily. With the belt off and the pump not turning, the sound was gone. I could spin the pump pulley by hand and faintly hear the noise.

A new pump cost me $35 and took about two and a half hours to replace.
