Why is my engine making a ticking sound?


If there is no noise in the engine at idle but when you drive off then it is the movement that i9s causing the ticking sound. If you have a front wheel drive vehicle check the cv joints for wear or check u-joints for dry and worn on the tail shaft.

Ticking noice gets louder when warm


If it goes tick, tick, tick, you might be low on oil or your lifters may be pecking. It is usually a sign of low oil or engine damage in the block. Check your fluid first. It may be a quart or two low. If not, it will need fixed eventually. That is up to you.

JUST PURCHASE A 2008 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 23,000 MILES ON IT. HAD IT FOR 2 MONTHS JUST RECENTLY HEARD A TICKING SOUND FROM THE ENGINE. ONLY HEAR IT WHEN THE CAR IS IDLING. NO ENGINE LIGHT. RUNS...


It sounds like a valve lifter is slightly loose. If it only "ticks" at idle it should not be a problem. If it begins to increase in volume and starts to tick at any other time than idle you need to have it adjusted. It could also be a small amount of sludge deposit blocking the oil. If your oil is dirty change it and the filter.

FIAT PUNTO. Ticking for short period following start up


Definitely change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles. After you change it add a half cup of Lucas engine oil suppliment when the engine is hot.
If if goes away you know it's cam or lifter issue. If it doesn't the ticking you hear may simply be your fuel system.

Clicking noise from engine when accelerating


The fact that it happened after you got it serviced is obvious that there something that was not done right. Check the engine oil, cuz clicking noise is sometimes caused by not enough engine oil or no oil at all!!

My car started ticking should i replace the rod bearings?


Not neccessarily. Have it diagnosed first. The ticking could be many different things. Bearings are one, lifters another or could be not internal engine, may be external. You also need to find out why its doing what it doing otherwise you will waste money fixing something and end up doing it again..

2001 Buick Century Ticking Noise


Okay, lets hope it is something simple. Remove the underhood light bulb. At night, in the dark, start the engine and look under the hood. You may be able to see sparks jumping. This would be bad wires. If you can see where the spark plugs go and one has a spark jumping it is just one bad sparkplug. Turn off car-replace underhood bulb.
If you see no sparks then it is most likely the valve train. If you have adjustable lifters they need someone to tighten them up to specifications. If they are not adjustable you may need to replace worn parts.
Make sure you keep fresh and plenty of oil in the engine. It can not repair worn parts but if the oil is low or dirty you will have bigger problems.

its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should
