I have a 2004 nissan maxima. Everytime i start up the engine i always here a ticking noise and would stop when the engine gets warmer. Does anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it? Some people tell me that it might be the lifters and would cost me lots of money to get it fix. If thats the case, can i just put something in the engine to stop that ticking noise? HElLLPPPPP!!!!

I have a 2004 nissan maxima. Every time rev the


Air can get trapped in your heater core. Sometimes you can use a floor jack and raise the passenger side of the vehicle, start the car and leave it running until the coolant cycles and the fans come on then rev the engine a few times to 2500 - 3500 rpm and let up. If this won't push the air through then you may have to remove the upper heater hose while the engine is running and let the air out. Probably a little harder than it sounds. I believe there also may be a coolant bleeder at the top of the intake where the coolant flows to the radiator. Crack that open with the engine idling.
I hope this helps.

My 04 nissan maxima has this loud ticking noise when i start it as i drive it it stops


i have the same problem on a customers car
its only when it sits for like 30 mins
and its coming from the rear head i can't hear it right by the chain cover so it might be
1. too thin of oil
2.oil starvation
3. variable valve timing solenoid sticking and when oil pressure rises it works normal.
4. or chain slap but then id figure the tensioner is bad....
but it goes away so its not a potential.. cuz if it was the noise would be there regardless.
i haven't fixed the car yet im gonna look at it tonite.

Clicking noise when i start my nissan maxima 2005


White smoke indicates water being burned. Also the ticking means your loosing oil. You most likely have a blown head gasket.

Ticking noice


If your not already, try using a genuine Nissan oil filter next time you get your oil changed. Most aftermarket filters allow the oil to drain back so when you start up cold the filter is in essence dry and not primed most likely causing the noise your experiencing. This would be the first thing I would reccommend checking.
