Your Oil Pump is Out and will need to be Replaced. This is not a Job that you would want to attempt on your Own unless you have been a Mechanic. Trust Me. Been an ASE Certified Mechanic for 35 Years.

SOURCE: oil consumption, rattle, engine noise

Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.

SOURCE: large rattle in the engine, No oil leaks, belts re

Take the serpentine belt off the engine and and run it without it for a couple of minutes. Did the noise go away. If it did then it's accessory related if not it's engine related. Possibly a stuck lifter. Just spit balling here. Need more info.

SOURCE: Oil light on, oil level

Sounds like a oil pump going bad.....Rattling could be from pump not pushing oil to lube engine.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor


Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

Oil pressure light comes on and valves rattle after warmup


Sounds like a failing engine.
Assuming the engine is full of oil, could be a weak oil pump or worn bearings.

My 01 Blazer is completely will not start. There is no turn over sound; Absolutely no sounds at all.


You could have serious trouble with the engine losing that much anti-freeze. If it is not leaking out somewhere onto the ground, it may be from a bad head gasket that is letting coolant burn in the cylinders (you would see white smoke out the exhaust), or it may let the coolant get mixed into the oil in the lower engine's crankcase.
Pull the oil dipstick and look at it. If the level is way high, or if the oil color is milky brown looking, then you have water (anti-freeze) in the oil-a bad head gasket, and a big expense to fix it. That would explain the rattling: water in the oil stops the oil from lubricating properly, and the engine bearings and other moving parts inside the engine can be damaged. If this is the case, and the reason for the rattling, then the engine is shot and needs a total overhaul, or you need a different engine.
If the coolant was leaking outside, post back. Has the engine ever overheated from low coolant? The rattling is worrisome-have a mechanic listen to it if you get it started. If it won't crank over, have someone see if the engine can be turned by hand-if it still turns freely (not siezed up), then the starting circuit needs to be checked for why the starter won't work. Good luck. Check the oil first thing.

Was Just driving home when a loud clicking/rattling noise was coming from under the hood. I pulled over and checked the oil. It was at max. Drove it 5 minutes home. Now i dont know what it is HELP!!


sounds like coolant has leaked into the oil pan, loosen the drain plug slowly , if water comes out before the oil the engine is probably badly damaged already, teardown and inspection comes next
