What is causing a loud ticking sound instead of a normal boat engine sound when accelerating in my boat?


One of the spark leads has come off or has chafed against something wearing away the insulation, thus the ticking sound, spark going elsewhere instead of the spark plug. Make sure the plug leads are secure and in good condition, make sure no water has entered the engine cyl head area

I have a 2008 Dodge Durango, 94k miles. Every time I start the truck after it sitting for a while (in the mornings or when I am leaving from work), it has a loud ticking noise and the engine sounds really...


Sounds like the valve lifters are taking longer than normal to pump up with pressure. Getting the motor cleaned out and de-sludged would help. also use good quality oil after the cleaning.

There is a loud ticking coming from where the throttle body sits while engine is running-no check engine light or trouble codes


ticking can be many things, from what your describing its a lifter or a rocker arm,, run a motor flush through the motor by adding it to the oil, run it for how ever many hours or miles the flush recommends , then change the oil and filter, if the ticking is still there, your going to have to remove the valve cover and inspect the assembly inside of it

I have a tapping in the engine what can be causing it


It's pretty tough for one of us to diagnose from afar without actually hearing it, but here are your possibilities: Lifter noise - low oil, worn - noise comes from upper engine Bearings (main & rod) - again low oil, worn - normally loud from lower engine
Exhaust leak - exhaust manifold and/or gasket - tick from side of engine, gets worse with engine RPMs
I'd have a competent shop look at it for you to get exact fault.

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

LOUD TICKING NOISE IN ENGINE AFTER INTAKE REPAIR


How long have you ran the engine ? I know that they will run rough and sometimes make strange noises for a few secounds or a little bit untill everything get oiled up again. I would make sure all the push rods are back in the right place and that all the lifters are tight.
