Tikking noise coming from engine


Yes, you're right, those could be the cause. Also, possible it's a collapsed hydraulic valve lifter, if your car has hydraulic operated (from engine oil) valve lifters. At any rate, it sounds like something loose in the valve train-valve lifter with push rod engines; or cam followers {rocker arms) with overhead cam engines that push on the top of valve stems .
Check a repair manual to see if your engine has valves that can be and need adjusting. Engines with valve lifters do not require periodic adjustment for proper valve clearance. Engines with rocker arms do require checking the valve clearance every couple of years or so.

I have an 89 dodge d 50 pick up and there is a loud ticking in the engine my buddy says its a possible that its a valve tapping does anyone know where I can find a diagram of the valves so I can figure out...


You say D50 do you mean D150 if it is a V8 one lifter is making noise. Lifters are pumped up with oil so they act like a solid piece of metal if there is a little ware in the drive train the lifter can compensate. The lifter has a little dirt in it so it will not fill with oil.Change your oil and filter with good oil and add something to clean the lifter like sea foam.If it keeps making noise find out what side and which end of the valve cover. Remove valve cover have someone start the engine touch the top or the rocker arms by the push rods and you will feel the loose one. Unbolt rocker arm assembly pull out push rod run a magnet down the hole and pull the lifter out. If it won't come out because you didn't change the oil enough and there is a ridge around the bottom buy a tool or rent that goes down the hole and spreads to lock into the lifter slide the hammer bar up the tool it should come out. If you were really really bad at changing the oil the lifter could be mushroomed out on the bottom or the cam wore a hole in the lifter then you have to remove the intake manifold to get it out. Take the new lifter put it into a can of oil and push down on the top a few times to fill it with oil then drop it in and put back together

Hi , i got a 1994 316I bmw , n am facing a silly problem with the engine noise in the morning .. when i start up the engine i hear a knocking noise then when the car starts to warm up the noise fades...


What you need to do is find the are that the noise is coming from. Next time you start in the morning, pop the hood first. start the car and get out and listen for the noise. Is it coming from the top or the bottom of the engine. You will have to get down to listen for the bottom. Top engine noise is usually from the lifters. They get dirty and partially collapse. They do have stuff called valve medic, thats helps clean these up. Bottom end noise Is the rod /main bearings. These can only be replaced. Basically an engine rebuild or replace.

In my 2000 expedition, there is a clicking noise on driver's side, at idle but worse when in gear. WHen I put a stethoscope on it the noise is loudest when i touch the exhaust manifold. Also noise is...


The egr vavle could be on the verge of freezing up. When it does the check engine light will come on. However, I think it may be a sticky valve or lifter. Try changing the oil and replacing one quart of oil with one quart of Marvel Mystery oil. This will help lubricate better. I do this in my 2000 Expedition and have never had any problems with it. CD2 is a product designed for sticking valves and lifters if you would rather go that route. I have used it too on an old mustang but not in my expedition.

Intermittent noise not a misfire sounds internal like a rod or valve or lifter. No check engine light, car has good power. U only hear noise after car is warm and not all the time. Could it b my belts? Any...


After it's warmed up to operating temp, if it makes the noise at idle but goes away reving the engine, I would guess that a lifter has gone bad. Rod bearings as a rule knock all the time. It's hard to diagnose these things over the internet, because there are so many variables when it comes to noises.

You need to warm the car up and then while it is running, open the hood and try to pinpoint the source. lifter noise will sound like a "tick" and come from somewhere near the top. Rod bearings will sound like a 'knock" and will come from the bottom of the engine.

1997 nissan pickup 4wd, just had timing chain replaced , now have noticeable knocking noise coming from valve cover ? mechanic says need new stack shims on valve rockers ?


Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.

Lifter clicking sound in 4.6 engine


it could be your tensioner. it sounds like a clicky squeak. sometimes it may go away but it always comes back. thats what mine is but i havent fixed it yet. i doubt you can grease it, you probably need it replaced. not expensive, at least the part should be under 100 bucks
