It is generally just a noisy lifter. This happens to about every 3.2 liter isuzu I have ever seen and didn't really hurt the performance.

Loud knocking under hood valve cover


Runs bad I bet. If it's under the valve cover, most likely a bolt has stripped out of a rocker arm, could be a broken spring. You could be lucky if only a bolt/nut backed off causing the noise.

Loud Knocking noise coming the top of the engine


possible but I would suggest a compression test to check for loose valve seat insert. They can come loose and follow the valve up and down and cause loud knocking noises and faulty engine operation.

My 84 toyota truck engine 22r has a valve knock. when i start my truck i hear a loud knock coming from the head.do i need to adjust the valves?


check the valve adjust and see if one valve is lower/higher than the rest. The valves are hydraulically adjusted and if the knock is really loud watch for a slight miss at rpm's. The only thing that will give a loud noise is a loose valve seat insert. You may pick it up with a compression test.

2002 2.7 liter chrysler has a knock in the engine. sounds like it is coming from the valves


if the car has alot of miles on it , a little bit of top engine noise is nothing to worry about. if the car does'nt have alot of miles on it or the noise is real loud then you may have a lose valve or need rocker arm ajustment.

There is a loud knocking noise under the right valve cover, what could be the cause?


It could be a collapsed lifter, a bent pushrod or a bad rocker arm. It could also be a bad piston wrist pin or rod bearing, and the noise sounds like it's up top.

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any...


might be the valves have been damaged running without oil
- or the crankshaft / camshaft / main bearings
most probably you have to let the engine be rebuilt by a mechanic
(expect cost of more than US$ 2.000)
or get another (used) engine at a scrapyard 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-0.jpg 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-2.jpg

97 SL2 dohc loud knocking sound coming from engine. sounds like somebody beating inside of valve cover with a hammer. compression checks ok. oil level is good. no obvious problems with cams or lfters that...


you have a ROD knock,,,,the oil level can be good and compression can be good,but the bearing on the rod to crank is shot and now has too much play and is causing excessive play and noise,soon the rod will come out the block and seize the engine,,if its knocking that loud then its too late to fix it,,your gonna have to replace the engine really soon,,,sorry but its normal of the dohc engine to do this usually between 90 to 130k miles they let loose but the single cam dont have this issue

Loud knocking oil in the spark plugs


Do a wet/dry compression test and determine if it's the piston rings or the valve seals.

Loud ticking/knocking/rattling sound when I start/accelerate


hi is it miss-firing as it sounds like a knocking noise can be anything but if you can feel it on the accelerater pedal then the noise sounds like its on the inlet valve side which would transfere the noise up the throttle body where the accelerater is located it could be something as simple as a tappet come loose to a burned valve you need to have a look do a compression test and take the rocker cover off see if theres anything come loose yates210456
