    1st of all most of the issue will most likely reside internally .its hard for me to say exactly what as i am unable to hear what the noise sounds like , however is the vehicle allowed sufficient time to warm up before driving off allowing the oil to warm up and the exchange of radiator fluids to reenter the motor etc ? i see many a people merely start up and drive off its a mere 22* here and i hear many noises from neighbors..it is possible a great many things to occur at this point 1st does the noise eventually go away ? 2nd does it persist even after its warmed up? how bad does it sound ? any further input would be appreciated

It sounds like it is probably the valve train making a little noise - this normally happens when the car is cold (before it warms up and the oil gets moving nicely)

Has he done an oil change recently? Does he have sufficient oil in the car? Check these things and rectify if necessary. Finally, he might want to double-check the oil he's using - the first number in the specification (eg 5W30) refers to the cold viscosity - he may need to change this to improve his cold starting.

Hope this helps

My 1996 honda passport lx wont start


If you here a clicking noise when you turn key, starter motor could be duff.
If no clicking noise solenoid possibly not working. Check wiring and current to solenoid and starter motor first.

My van wont start when we turn it to start it, it just makes a clicking sound


If its a fast clikcing noise like a machine gun, its a bad connection or a weak battery. If its just one click then nothing it can be the starter or the battery. Try to give it a jump and see if it starts. Get back to me!

Van won't start. Just makes a clikcing noise. Horn sounds weak.


THIS IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE STARTER MOTOR SOLENOID, REMOVE AND REPLACE THE STARTER OR JUST REPLACE THE SOLENOID ON TOP OF THE STARTER IF YOU CAN BUY IT SEPERATE.

Sounds like your heat and a/c door actuator motor. Does your heat and a/c switch over from one to the other correctly?
