If only when engine is running, probably valve tappet noise. How many miles on engine? How often do you change oil and filter?

How do i fix a ticking noise in a 3800 motor


Its your valves that are making those ticks, check the level of your oil and add if necessary, if this does not help you will need to get a valve job done and possibly a complete top engine rebuild. You can eliminate some of this noise by additives that will give your oil stability and the engine some extra time. Check with your local parts store or mechanics shop

Fluid leaking around the serpintine belt and this is helping it spead to under hood surface....more noise while running


If the fluid is oil it probably is the power steering pump. If it is coolant it is the water pump.

Oil fluid leak on left side of car-2000 buick lasabre


If its on the drivers side of the car close to the front check the transmission oil cooler lines. Especially if the fluid is redish in color. You will see them if you look up under the vehicle on the drivers side. There will be to black hoses running between the transmission and the radiator. If they are wet/dripping you found the leak.

Oil consumption, rattle, engine noise


Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.

Ticking Noise in 01 Chevy Silverado 2500


if noise is higher pitched and coming in on valve time...(2wice for every revolution of motor..ie: faster)...then upper end pressure is down due to sludge, wear , lifter failure, valvespring failure,rocker stud lifting out of cylinder head (kinda common) cam bearings failing (very rare)..oil pump bypass stuck open..and a few other possibilities... respond and we will go over lower end sound (deeper ,slower) and see what identifies your issues .... miles
