Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I bought a used Tacsew t111-155. Running good, but has a chirp when thread take up goes up and down. Any idea what it may be?

I oiled all the little holes and have oil in pan. Previous owner had it for a while, but couldn't figure out how to use it. When I take the faceplate off I see a looks like a disc and think that may have something to do with it.

You most likely hit a curb, the pan is cast aluminum and will break like glass if you hit a curb, the pan can be changed without removing the engine, it is very time consuming, but it can be done.

Its not the oil relief valve,since it only works when pressure is to high,and even then you dont lose all pressure.. look into the camshaft synchronizer having a broken drive gear at the bottom.they tend to break..working on one now that has this problem,so I know. luck to ya!

SOURCE: stripped oil pan plug

You should replace the pan. Pan saver plugs are for temporary use only.

SOURCE: Use of recommended oil viscosity (5w-20)

I ask that same question about my 2007 and was told that the main reason for the lite oil weight was to give better gas mileage. Still though I never changed because I got over tinkering with the manufactures specs. in my hot rod days. Stay with the 5-20W.

Why can't i stop the oil leak on the lower bolt on the waterpump

Need to know year and make of vehicle,but oil should not be coming from water pump mounting bolts ,check to see if oil is leaking from above the water pump .it may be just accumulating on water pump .steam clean engine and check, you could remove the bolt with oil around it take a mirror and check to see if the hole goes into crank case or if it's a blind hole ,if it goes all the way threw oil is running down into hole around threads of bolt and out to where you see it , when you replaced water pump do you remember seeing anything on the bolts (RTV, blue or orange color lock tight, if so remove bolt put RTV on bolt and reinstall it(if you decide to use lock tight do NOT use red the bolt will not come out ever again, make sure you use blue lock tight!!!

How i fix?

Okay first thing you want to do is clean pretty well around where it's leaking oil that way you can detect where it's actually coming from but you think it might be coming from a spark plug when you pull the plug out some of them have a little washer that is made to crush down and help with the sealing. I would just buy a new spark plug and make sure you tighten it down good not too tight and put some anti seize on the threads and that could also help with Sealing so if the other plug isn't leaking try to guesstimate how much tension it takes to loosen it and then do the one that's leaking to compare maybe it just needs to be tightened up but I would get a new one so that way you have a new washer to help seal so I would try that make sure you clean it all off so you can find exactly where it's coming from though. Also take a little flashlight look down in the threads where the plug went make sure there's good threads. in there You said something about it leaking out a little hole if you find that then clean it up really good use of sandpaper little bit and then put epoxy J-B Weld that works good for Sealing rubbing alcohol or Windex helps to prep it on the cases I've done it, works well

I have a chirping noise that starts when I start the car. It used to die down as I would drive, now it's louder and does not go away as before.

The chirping noise is probably a worn belt
You should check all pulleys and belt tensioner for alignment and or looseness
The knocking noise could be an internal engine noise
Which is common for the little 2L engines and I'm just guessing that's what engine you have
Make sure to use a good quality oil filter to prevent oil drain back and also the proper weight of oil
Too thick of oil can also cause this until engine warms up
You should use 5w30 or 10w30
The owners manual may say and sometimes the oil cap will give the recommended weight of oil

Now i have a new problem, my car has a tick, and only goes 51 mph, i know it has to be a rod or lifter? any suggestions on what i can do to save the motor?

I would have you oil pressure checked. The oil pump or bearings could be going out. The lifter noise on this car usually will go away faster then 5 minutes. I think the noise is lasting a little to long.

Noise sounds like a metallic chirp from valve train.

To narrow it down, while the engine is running, don't get near moving parts, you can use a long piece of steel, metal, put 1 end on the valve cover, the other to your ear and listen for rattling. You can move it around to narrow down the source of the noise. It's like a stethoscope but works well. I use a 3' long screwdriver.

Making an odd noise, and I can't figure out what it is...

Make sure the belt is tight. You can try spraying some belt conditioner on the ribbed side with the engine running. It can also be pulley bearings--especially the idler. Try spraying a little oil on the accessory bearings with the engine running. If the chirping stops where you spray, replace that part.

2004 ford taurus chirping noise when engine revs

Hello, There are several things which can do this. First, cut off the A/C and then rev the engine as before. If the chirping goes away, the noise was either the A/C clutch or the Serpetine belt slipping with the load. For the A/C clutch, you can try a little rust removal between the drive plate and the pulley with the engine OFF. You can use sandpaper and try to knock off the rust. Then put a little oil on to condition the metal. Then try it with the A/C on.

If the chirp is still there, you have to check bearings on the Pulley tensioner, Alternator, Water pump, and Power steering. It is possible for the Pulley tensioner to have a weak spring or you may have a stretched Serpetine belt. This condition would cause the belt to skip under a load. If the belt is checked with small cracks, just replace the belt. Take off the tensioner and compare the spring tension and wobble in the pulley to a new unit at the Autoparts store.

If still no success, the chirp could be a water pump bearing. The old way off using a piece of wood on the housing of a part while the engine is running is dangerous, but effective. I believe you should have already found your problem before this measure is needed. Dry Serpetine belts make quite a lot of noise and is probably your problem.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.
