It sounds as if the hydrallic lifters are bleeding off pressure after it sits. Which means the lifters somewhat collapse until they start getting oil pressure from the oil pump after you start it. You might try an oil change and an A/C oil filter. If it is the lifters, they would need to be replaced.

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...


Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Engine ticking on cold startup


There are additives for the oil that frees sticking lifters. Try putting some in the oil first. If that doesn't work then you'll have to replace all the lifters . Never just replace just one.

I've got a slight ticking noise, but not at start-up. After the engine warms up, it will start out very faint and gradually get louder. After about 2 - 3 minutes, it goes away. This is a High M


This sounds like a tappet (cam follower/rocker arm) is at max clearance. This can be the sign of cam lobe wear or follower wear on its internal clearances or valve tip wear.

Makes like a ticking or light knocking noise at start up, whether it's hot or cold outside. I usually let the truck idle for a while and it goes away.


Usually a sign of needing an oil change. My Dodge Dakota does the same thing, when I change the oil it goes away. Every couple of oil changes I use kerosene to clean out the gunk, just put kerosene in place of the oil, let the motor run for a minute then drain, replace the oil filter, and fill with oil, then you're good to go.

My 2000 malibu has 116,000 mile on it . at about 114,000 miles there is a ticking when first starting up . after a few minutes for warm up it goes away. is it something that i should have checked out?


on the 3.1 it is normal unless the ticking does not go away when warm. just keep oil clean and all should be ok. my 2000 malibu does the same thing. all 3.1 engines do this when cold.

Starts and ticks over fine for about 1 min then cuts out


I believe you are stating when you start the vehicle you hear a ticking sound from the motor. After a few minutes it goes away. I ahve 2 grand vitara's. A 2001 and 2002. Both had this issue. On the 2002 it was a faulty cam belt tightener that was taking too long to tighten. This was replaced under warranty as it worsened over time. The 2001 still has the issue but goes away. Some times this is also and can be a sign of oil not getting circulated quick enough once you start your engine. I believe this is the problem with the 2001. It now has 300000 plus kms on it and still does it. No long term issues with this vehicle. I would suggest you have someone look at it regardless of comment I have posted.

First start car ticking noise after 5 minutes it


This is the tappets on the top of the engine ticking cause they havent got any oil yet. When you first start it take a few secs to get the oil to the top of the engine...It is a warning of impending trouble, but it may or may not be quite a ways off...

Ticking noises only when you start then goes away


Depended on the mileage and if the truck has been worked hard. It could be a few things, A worn out hydraulic lifter, a worn crank bearing, old engine oil that needs to be changed, or maybe a tired oil pump. Try using a stethoscope to narrow down where the ticking noise is loudest. From there you will have a better idea what the cause is. Take a look at the oil pressure, see if it takes to long in the morning for the oil pressure to start building. Every time you look at something different it will help bring you that much closer to the solution.

Load ticking at start up and continues for a while on my 04 F150


If the ticking sound sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine them most likely one of the lifters is bleeding off while it is sitting. If the ticking goes away after a few minutes of operation then the lifter has pumped its self back up and is operating properly. There is not any damage you can do to the engine by not replacing the lifter at this point, just the annoying ticking sound when first starting. If at some point the ticking continues after running for a few minutes the lifter has malfunctioned and should be replaced. Just remember, if you replace one lifter you should replace all of them.
