SOURCE: 2006 BMW 3251 loud ticking sounds from engine

this is a very common issue with any of the bmws with n52 and n52k engine,as long as oil level is ok and is being changed regularly than than a "blleding proceedure" may solve this problem, when the engine has been running long enough that it is hot run the engine at idle to 4500 rpm for 10 to 12 min to start, if is still present after this attempt again.It has been said that this could take up to 30 min at longest.The reason for the ticking noise is a very tiny air gap in the hva and or lifters, try this and if does not work than the lifters should be replaced, although this noise doesnt really hinder the performance it does take away from driving such a nice car and having a loud noise come from the engine, good luck

When i accelerate my motor clatters. it doesn't

A clattering sound could be a knock sensor. They are made to tell you there is a problem with the engine or it could just need to be replaced. If you dont have any fault codes or loss of power you might just need a new one but start at the simple spots first. Check the serpentine belt and make sure its on tight check your intake manifold and exhaust manifold for leaks and make sure the sound your hearing is not a bad lifter or rod. You can remove the valve cover and visually inspect most small cars. Check all of your fluid levels because if your low on oil it will cause this aswell

Clunk sound when start up then later engine failure

this is called, Engine stall.
it has many causes.
1: lost DC power to the EFI system (corroded fuses?)
2: bad engine compression for many reasons but not doing the 60k service is #1 , for ever.
3: bad spark (and timing)
4: bad fueling, too much or too little.
we use simple cheap tools to find this problem
after doing the 60k mile service.

its old car, most i see are trash, 10 or more show stoppers.
bad. all ignored by owners. #1 is the 60k skipped.
i just restored a 91. and it had 20 stoppers.

Engine starts and stops ticking

Sounds like oil pressure problems to me. Check to make sure your oil level is correct. If the oil level is OK get the engine checked by a professional.

My escort was running fine it set in the driveway about 1.5 hrs went to start it and started clattering

you may want to check your oil level.if it is ok,it may be your water pump,although that is more of a squealing sound

ThenI start my engine it sounds like diesel and no power

how is the oil level and pressure?, how many miles on engine? is this a loud knock or rather a clatter/ticking noise? knock is engine rod or crankshaft bearings, clatter loud ticking is valve follower noise. how long before it (the noise) goes away?
