    Karen, I need more info, is it when you start the engine. Is it durring the operation of the engine, is it when you turn it off. Where is it comming from ie the engine, a wheal, the transmission. the cheapest way to listen for noises is to get a doctors stethiscope, you can replace the listening diapram with a straw and poke it all over the engine, or if your a bit of a inventor, with some vacume tubes you can make your own. Let me know once you have gotten more info. tepfy

Heard a constant "clack, clack, clack, clack" then didnt want to accelerate. Died & now wont start. Any ideas??


Check the oil. nothing on the dipstick? happens on these 3.4 engines. Also could have way to much brown oil, intake gasket blown. Clacking is the rod bearings. Replace the engine.

You may have a worn Constant volicity joint on one or both of the front axle shafts. Have a shop check them for torn grease boots first.

I have a 86 Nissan 720. Suddenly the engine started overheating after about 15 minutes, and there's a loud clacking under the hood when revving the engine. All fluids etc are fine. Any suggestio


you have a rev limiter on that car. DO NOT OVER REV. the engine. The clacking sound is more then likely your valve tap-its from being over heated. Replace your thermostat and make sure you change your coolant every 2 years. Sounds like your thermostat is stuck open. Replace your thermostat every year or 2.

2000 Chrysler 300M V6 with 150k miles started giving a clacking noise from the engine area after getting an oil change from Jiffy Lube. I was less than 2 miles from their shop when it started clackin


Sounds like your valve lifters. It's possible that they drained the oil and never refilled it. This does happen when they go on break or lunch half way through a job. They think they added the oil, but did not. Out you go, Mr. Clack-Clack.

Loud clacking sound on 2003 mazda 6. possible axle? happened after oil change. sounds like something is loose.


This noise can be caused by a defective outboard (wheel end) front axle constant velocity joint (known as a "CV" Joint). This would be louder on turns, more noticeable at lower speeds and sharp turns. Next it could be valve train noise, this would come from the top of the engine and this could be related to the oil change if a piece of dirt got into the oil supply to the hydraulic camshaft followers. At this point you need a professional to listen to the noise to determine the exact cause.

Is making a clacking noise when i brake and start to drive now left me stranded will not move when i put it on drive it does reverse thought


Sounds like the transmission has failed. Sometimes the drive shaft joints fail and only lock up in one direction but very rare.

Constant clacking accelerating and that is worse on turns under light load is CV joints badly worn.

Seems you may have internal transmission failure of the forward clutch assembly. On VW automatics it is best to find a used transmission or factory replacement.

On a standard 5 speed transmission, used is always better. ....look on CAR PARTS.COM
Check with the VW dealer to make sure you are not covered under the Power Train Warranty.
