The sound may be the hydraulic lifters need to fill with oil before they run silent
possible el cheapo oil filter without a flow back valve used ,
oil viscosity wrong for used engine
take it to an accredited service center and leave over night so that the problem can be diagnosed on first start up on a cold engine

2002 dodge ram 1500 motor has a little knock but drives good and doesnt run hot. Bought it from a man he said he ran it hot one time and now it has oil and water mixing. What do u think will fix it


Probably another engine.
Since you don't know why it got hot in the first place, it would be impossible to know what is damaged now.
The knock is probably from lack of lubrication because of the contaminated oil. And that would mean all of the bearings are worn. And a leaking head gasket or cracked head could allow coolant into the oil.
If it has more than 90,000 miles on the engine its probably not worth rebuilding if it needs all of the bearings replaced plus the cause of the leaking oil/coolant repaired.

There is a knocking sound in my engine


sounds like a rod is knocking, check oil to make sure it is full. If it has plenty of oil then if it checks out ok, you probable need new engine.

I have a knocking in my 99 subaru Legacy L it has a 2.2 and all new parts in the timing chain area, what could it be? When purchased put all new parts, sprockets, pulley and tentioners and belt on new. It...


I think I would pull the timing covers back off and see if one of the pulleys etc. is loose. Did you put the proper tension on the timing belt? It is also easy to put that belt on one tooth off, the motor will still run and can produce the knocking noise, take care and good luck. ps I assume the oil level is good in the motor.

Waterleak nopressure in hose loud knocking at top of engin


That doesn't sound good. It appears you have 1 of 2 issues. The no coolant is a bad/blown head gasket or cracked engine block. When the head gasket is bad or block is cracked the coolant leaks into the cylinder blows out the exhaust (have you noticed the smell of coolant or white smoke in the exhaust) then runs by the pistons and into the oil pan (check your oil level it is probably way high) where it mixes with your oil and reduces its viscosity/lubrication. After prolonged driving with coolant/water in the motor your bearing will wear prematurly and cause parts to become looser then they are (hense the knocking sound). If you continue driving with the knock the motor will have a mechanical breakdown and more then likely throw a rod. THis is usually a motor swap at this point. Some mechanics will replace the bearings but either or you will nee extensive work to correct. The head gaskets need to be replaced/checked and the head for warpage/seepage and possibly a cracked block plus fixing the damage to the lower end. Its usually cheaper to purchase a new/used motor as this is somehting that will cost $1000's of dollars so please pick a reputable mechanic for this kind of work... If you have an extended warranty this is the time to use it..

sounds like you have a blown head gasket. It is broken between water jackets and cylinder. Check prestone over flow tank.

Nocking when cold then goes away (Proton coupe )


It sounds like you may have some sludge in your oil. When the engine is cold the oil is thicker and takes a while for the oil pump to pump it through the engine. The next time you change the oil. Do an engine oil flush first to clean the inside of the engine and ports. If this does not work you might have to have the oil pump checked. There is no need to worry as long as you have oil pressure and the knocking stops. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this answer.
