    Did you just buy the car, or is this the first time you changed the oil in it since you purchased it?

Make sure you have the correct filter and that there is oil in the engine.
I usually pre-fill the filter to avoid similar problems.
It can also be that if someone else changed the oil, they may have forgotten to put oil in after they were finished, started the engine then caught the mistake. If that happens it is difficult or impossible to prove but it can cause irreversible damage to the crank bearings, especially if they were somewhat worn to begin with. Adding marvel oil can sometimes free up a sticking lifter but other than that it is a "case by case" situation. If a shop did the work, notify them right away and don't drive the car 'till they have looked at it.
hope it turns out to be something small...
Good Luck!!

Determining reason for check engine light in 06 chevy aveo


possible oil pressure switch, oil pump itself, or rod bearing issues due to poor oil change history. (that last one is more of a knock that a tick)
Sounds for sure like you aren't getting the proper oil pressure and the ticking would most likely be the cam/rockers/valves letting you know they need more oil on them.

Assuming the engine oil level is normal, knocking would be lack of oil on the bearings and ticking would be lack of oil for the lifters and valves. I would be checking oil pressure next.

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala. I ran my car with no oil and now I'm hearing a loud ticking/knocking noise coming from under my valve cover. I added 2 bottles of oil after finding out that I didnt have any...


might be the valves have been damaged running without oil
- or the crankshaft / camshaft / main bearings
most probably you have to let the engine be rebuilt by a mechanic
(expect cost of more than US$ 2.000)
or get another (used) engine at a scrapyard 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-0.jpg 2003-chevy-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-5-2.jpg

My car started ticking should i replace the rod bearings?


Not neccessarily. Have it diagnosed first. The ticking could be many different things. Bearings are one, lifters another or could be not internal engine, may be external. You also need to find out why its doing what it doing otherwise you will waste money fixing something and end up doing it again..

Engine knocking, valve ticking loud in engine, when idle or drivi


Make sure the oil level is good, and have the oil pressure check by a garage or someone who can, by using a external gauge to see what the actual oil press is. Low oil pressure will give you the ticking, start there.

2001 FORD FOCUS LOAD TICKING NOISE


it very well can be that depending on the severity of the ticking noise, if it sounds like its coming from the top of the engine, place your hand on it only when you first start it up and if you can feel it knocking slightly and if the noise dies away once warmed up id say its your lifter, if its a heavier knocking rather than a ticking and comes from below or bottom end of engine it may be big end bearing, not good. try putting some engine treatment through the engine oil and make sure you run it in as directions state then change the oil and filter and see if that helps :)

Knocking under valve cover on cold starts


Is there any smoke when you first start it? what is happening is the valve seals are probably worn and letting the oil seep past them. when your engine is first started it has no oil or very little oil at the top of the engine, thus causing the knocking noise. could be more but this is a most likely answer. oh and is you haven't changed your oil every 3,000 miles you had beeter start doing it.... answer knocking sounds usually come from bottom of engine try a better quality and correct viscosity oil
