That loud clicking was most likely a rod bearing going out. The bike quit and locked up as a result. This is serious and expansive. Sorry

SOURCE: ticking noise when trying to start car


Sounds like a flat battery !

Get a jump start, with a good heavy duty set of jump leads.

Then have your battery tested.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated thanks. !

SOURCE: car won't start and now makes a rapid ticking noise

all of this is result of low battery as all of you know but for the one who it wouldnt start and then killed your battery the rotary engine with its desing will flood after just a few attempts to start so most likley it was flooded and if your battery was already low than im sure you killed in a short amount of time

SOURCE: 04 CooperS: Horn does not work

Check the fuse first. should be in the drivers footwell. Make sure that it is not blown. 90% of the time fuse will just blow due to high resistance from one of the horns. There is a high and low horn often it requires to replace one and try the horn and see if it blows. Then replace the horn that blows the fuse.

My Audi a3 has got aloud ticking noise coming from engine once it gets worm

your vehile is fitted with hydraulic valve lifters. if the kilometers is quite high on the engine i would suggest replacing the lifters and make sure you use a proper engine oil cause that is the most common reason why chains and lifters fail

Should the motter make noise like a ticking soung

welll... yes and no. its normal on most vehicles to make a little clattering noise on the initail start up of the morning, but if its still ticking when its warm, i suggest getting an oil, and filter change and see if that doesnt help it out, or at least make sure its full on oil. The tinging or clattering at startup, is the lifters pumpin up, but other than that, no it shouldnt make any kind of noise. hope this helps

Hi! I tried to start my car (2000 Chrysler Cirrus) this morning, but it just makes a muffled growling noise an/or a ticking noise. My friend came by to jump start it, but that didn't work. Any ideas?

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me that your starter has just broke it's last leg. Many things can cause the starter to go bad. If all you hear is a ticking noise, then chances are that the starter gave up. You can have someone take it off and go to a parts store and have them test it for you, (some MAY charge you for this while others won't). This will tell you if your starter needs to be replaced. Be prepared. Considering the year, a replacement may very well be tastey expensive. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Clicking noise

if it is a ticking sound, check your oil level.
if after you shut down, then you probably had the air conditioning on? If so, normal.
does it drain the battery?

Ticking noise

It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
