I have a 2002 bora tdi 100 s and the engine is quite tappy and loud, is there anything i can do to quiet the engine down or stop the tapping noise??? the engine itself runs and goes fine, i have been told...


hi,the first thing to do is an engine flush,then refill with10/40 or 20/50 oil, semi sythetic,not forgeting to change the filter.this particular engine is quite loud but the noise should die down after about 15/20 secs if its tappy.i would also reccomend adding wynns or another oil additive to help the self adjusting tappets quiten down.An oil blockage would show up as a loud knock (big end rumble)and the oil warning light would show on the dash.
after you do the oil change rev the engine to 3000 for 30 secs.this will help to get the tappets right.

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy, and it started making "knocking sounds". Ck the oil, it was OK


If the sound does not go away then the engine has internal problems. Some times if someone over revs the engine it will cause knocks.If the oil is not changed regularly and the engine gets hot due to low water,racing engine then engines dont last long.
If its a deep solid knock its a crank shaft bearing.
If its a lighter knock then some times if you remove the right plug wire and the knock goes away (of course the engine will run rough due to lost cylinder) its that pistons wrist pin bearing.
At any rate your engine will need rebuilt or replaced.Or get a different car.

Severe vibration and knocking sound!


sounds more like a ujoint or a center support for the drive shaft. also check and make sure that the flywheel bolts have not come loose. also check the harmonic balancer and make sure it is not seperating

Loud engine knocking on 2001 Ford Focus


Sounds to me like a very common problem has occured to your neighbor. If this is a SOHC engine, one of the valve seats in the number 4 cylinder has fallen out. I'm sure it has damaged the head and the piston. Stop trying to run it or you might blow a hole in the cylinder wall or break a rod or both.

A fairly consistent tapping noise from the top of the engine between 50 - 70 mph. After 70-75 mph in seems to quiet down.


sounds like a lifter is bleeding out or starving for oil at low revs
check oil level and oil pressure
if thats good lifter or tappet clearance next to check
is engine seviced regularly?
slugde build up can cause problems also
if V6 petrol see a lot of worn valve guides causing noise worse when warm and noise comes in and out at 1200RPM
tappet clearance issue noise would be there all the time
lifter can also come and go while holding revs up

90 Toyota 4Runner pinging noise


hi the pinging you here is ignition firing before it should but if you have a knocking noise i would suspect the worse but try doing a compression test first see if everything is in order then if this seems ok have you put fuel in it just before it started if so change your fuel if not see if the electrical system has a knock sensor if so run the engine and tap the block close to it see if engine revs drop if not replace but the knock is a piston best of luck yates210456
