Question about 1988 Ford Ranger

2.9l 89 Ford Ranger. I have a tapping noise that goes away after

I have a tapping noise that goes away after starting it and letting it run about 30-60sec. (I think it is in the lifters.) It comes back after I drive it a while and then doesn't go away. The oil pressure has been on the low side but after driving it yesterday it fell well below normal.

Listen to the noise. Is it on top or bottom of the engine. Is the noise more like tapping or knocking(deeper sound). Neither is good. The reason it goes away is higher RPM's creates more oil pressure.

My 89 ford ranger keeps making a cliking noise while ideling makes it rev up an down it will start up then check enginr light comes on thrn it goes dead


Go to any Autozone, Advance. or Oreillys for a free scan. Sounds like an idle control solenoid may be bad. Or the water temperature sensor is not putting your car into the "cold start sequence".

What causes a tapping noise when the engine is running in a 2002 Saturn L200?


Lifters, push rods and rockers arms. That's what does it. To check lifters. Start the engine and get it up to operating temperature. Put a half quart of transmission fluid in it and let it run. If the tapping goes away, let it run for about 30 minutes. Drain the oil and change the oil filter. Refill it and add some oil treatment first, lucus, slick 50.. what ever you prefer. If the noise doesn't go away. Look at the rocker arms and push rods, they should be polished, replace them as needed, I would still put the additive in.

The clicking noise is coming from your starter or more specifically your solenoid on your starter. (It's attached right on the side of your starter.) If you can find a way to get to it, take something hard and tap on the solenoid and that will free it up. If that doesn't work try tapping it and the starter while someone else is turning the key. If it happens again it means that your starter is going out and you will have to replace it but that is easy enough so don't worry about it. Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Goodluck!

Noise clutch


unfortunately, I would say that the noise does indicate a throw-out bearing that is prematurely worn. Or possibly out of line. If I were in your position, I would take the truck to another mechanic that will give you a written estimate on what he/she "thinks" the problem might be. Then, I would take it to the place where you had the clutch replaced and ask them to "please make the noise go away." I hate do talk bad about mechanics, however it is likely that they did not replace the throw out bearing when they replaced your clutch. I don't know if this has helped you, but I wish you good luck
