A clicking sound could be stuck lifters. try an oil additive designed to clean sticky engines. it may also be preignition so you can try a higher octane fuel. lastly it could be somthingelse and not the engine at all. use a 1/2 inch rubber tube to listen to individual areas of the engine to pin point the noise

Why is the transmission slipping when first started?


Sounds like dirty fluid and filter in the transmission. A filter and fluid change might help a great deal. The quicker the better

Replace lifters


First how many miles on the vehicle and how long was the car run low on oil? Most cars today have an integrated fuel pump that will shut off if the engine is low on oil. Most likely you have either gotten some dirt into the lifters causing the noise so I would start with a fresh oil change and filter and add a good oil additive to help clean the insides of the engine. I personally like Rislone products because I have had good luck with them but any good additive that quiets lifters will have a detergent to help clean the lifter and help prevent lifter bleed-down.

Knocking noise when in drive and stopped.


Hi,
1st thing - DO NOT DRIVE as you may be low/out of fluid.

Check both your automatic transmission fluid and your engine oil level. Both should be described in the owner's manual.

My pajero manual transmission 4WD has a clanking noise after you have driven it for a long time. when the transmission becomes hot the clanking noise appears. but when i step on the clutch the noise...


hi.
a transmission problem when hot, but ok when cold, would suggest that the oil in the gearbox is getting too thin when it heats up.

you say that the transmission has been pulled out but do you know if the oil was actually changed in it.
if the oil has not been changed, drain it and replace with the specified oil.
if it was changed recently, then i would consider using a thicker grade transmission oil instead.

changing gearbox oil, is normally a matter of removing the drain plug on the bottom to drain the old oil, and then refilling using the level plug on the side of the engine.

I have a 2002 Saab 9-3. A couple of days ago I started hearing a clicking sound coming from the engine area (don't know if its actually the engine, just in that area). At first, only made sound when...


If the 'clicking' sound changes with engine speed you need to check your oil, and pay attention to your temperature guage-it might be a lifter making noise and an oil change would possibly help. If it is a steady clicking noise, it might be a loud fuel injector, possible but not likely.

Has a noise in front end also wont shift into low,second or overdrive.


SOUND PROBLEM IN TRANSMISSION OIL PUMP OR TRANSMISSION TORQUE CONVERTER.SINCE YOU NEED BOTH OF THEM EITHER ONE MALFUNCTION THERE WILL BE NO LOW DRIVE GEAR OR OVER DRIVE.MAKE SURE TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL NOT LOW. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD. YOU CAN CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND CHANGE FILTER FIRST TO SEE IF HELPS ANY. IF NOT TAKE TRANSMISSION TO SHOP.THEY NEED TO RUN OIL PUMP PRESSURE TEST TO SEE IF OIL PUMP BAD.

4 whell drive roar starting at 25mph


that really sounds like you need to verify the level of the trans-axle oil and/or the transmission oil. if you are unsure, or if you didnt perform the change of the oil at the required intervals, you should stop in a pep boys, jeffy lube or similar store and have the fluid levels check.

the transmission oil is easy to check with a dip stick in the engine (not the same to the engine oil), and the trans-axle oil, you will have to remove a bolt in the axle and check with your finger if it is in level.
