Could be valves notx receiving enough oil at initial start up. Change to a lighter weight or to a synthetic oil.

Car intermitantly will not start..make a click noise but not a click click noise it was jumped one day...seemed fine morning day would not neighbor jumped it said it might...

Check the battery first, if it is ok you probably have a bad starter. If the battery is drained, you need to charge and test the battery and alternator.

98 Merc grand marques on cold start engine makes loud hammer tapp

Do you have the defrost on when it is doing this? Turn it off and see if it goes away. I'm still thinking A/C compressor.

Hi I have got a mini one and have a tapping noise on a cold start - would this be tappets or what do you suggest? It was serviced in January. The tapping noise is not there when started up during the day...

It seems tht the oil takes time to reach tht area at start up.
Check the oil as its now October 10months after the service, could be time for another service.
Go for a higher grade of oil and not bad if you use STP Engine oil treatment (for petrol engine), or you can use the start up addative oil.(STP).
Hope this helps!

97 dakota, cliick/tapping noise, brown liquid spray, help

i would expect that the water pump has failed and would take a look closer in the morning and make sure nothing else has cracked, i expect the pump housing has but make sure its not a crack in the block or anything.
