Question about Cars & Trucks
When i start it there is no sound,i drive it around maybe for 5 km then this noise starts ,at first i thought it was low on oil and i added up more oil.Will getting a service done help cause i got it last week from japan
There are two kinds of potential noises to be concerned about here. I assume the low oil pressure warning light is not on, or at least you did not mention it. When the engine is at operating temperature and at an idle, you may hear more of a "tick" sound with a frequency of about two or more ticks per second. This is valve train noise from either a mis-adjusted rocker arm or a failing lifter. However if after warm up, the noise is more of a "knock" and occurring at a frequency of half of the rate of a valve tick, or about once per second you have a more serious problem with a main crankshaft bearing or a connecting rod bearing. If this is the case adding oil will not help - the crankshaft is already damaged and the engine will require a complete overhaul.
Drain the oil and check for metallic particles - if present then there has been metal-on-metal contact somewhere in the bottom end and the engine has been damaged.

SOURCE: Engine noise cold
these motors made some noise when cold normally due to the clearance. Is it more than that? Have you tried removing plugs and soaking pistons overnight with topengine cleaner this will loosen carbon which makes some cold noise problems.

You have a bad front wheel bearing on the left side because you say when you turn right the noise goes away, because when you turn right the suspension lifts up on the opposite side and releives some weight on the bearing causing it to quiet down. No it is NOT a DIY repair unless you have some pretty extensive tools. the quickest easiest and least expensive way to fix this is to go to a wrecking yard and buy a steering knuckle for the left. it will have a wheel bearing already pressed into it and all you have to do is replace the whole thing and you are done. do not open any brake lines or hoses to do this job just gently press the brake caliper piston back about 1/2" so it will fit over the brake pads when you reinstall.
please rate this advice a fixya if you feel I have provided excellent service.

Hello, I see you have a trailblaber with a knocking noise. It sounds like you have an electric fan clutch issue. Believe it or not your vehicle has an electric fan clutch. It looks just like the older non-electric but if you look on the driver side of the fan shroud that is the wire connector you see. It is an exspensive part just for the clutch but thats exactly what you are describing. It doesn't get louder just fast with rpms. Please rate my answer, Thank you
