Hello I have a carpigiani van 1 machine I've just had it regased and now I've got a screeching noise coming from under the bonnet can anyone help


Sounds like the orifice (expansion Valve) is plugged , resulting in a stalling of the compressor, screeching is the belt slipping.

Audi a4 1998 tapping noise only when idles under valve cover


Sounds like a bad valve lifter or a valve out of adjustment. It's probably a bad hydraulic valve lifter. In idle, when the oil pressure is lowest, it is not filling with oil. When the motor revs up, oil pressure rises and fills the faulty lifter.
If you do have mechanical lifters, the valve is probably out of adjustment. If you do car work, pull the valve cover and see if it's adjustable. Of course, you'll need the specs from VW/Audi.
Otherwise, it's probably a shop job.
Sorry.

1993 nissan altima what could be causing a screeching


It probably is a belt. You should look under the hood and check for a loose belt. Tighten as necessary. You should not be able to deflect the belt more than 1/2" in the center of the span of the belt.

Brakes will also make a screeching noise when they are worn out. This noise will also go away when you stop (of course). The sound is quite different than the belt sound.

Engine has knocking noise. Oil is good. Started


Engine knock Huh? In order to qualify the term "Knock", Let me get you to perform some simple task/observation. Typically, if you hear a noise on top of your motor that can be described as a light knock, usually going tap, tap, tap, tapping along at double the tempo, of your motor spinning, Your oil pump may be having trouble getting oil to the top where the valve's and rocker arms are. If you hear a "Knock" by bending over or kneeling beside one of your "front wheel well's"and stick your head up to the well, providing a vantage point to "hear" whats going on at the lower part of the engine. A knock from here will/can indicate a potentially overheated, under lubricated, rod or crank bearing that could seize the motor. This (theretical) crank bearing would be sounding off at half the tempo of the rocker arms above., with a deep, dark klunk that would defintly present itself as the sort of noise that damages metal parts. Now, that being said.....common sense goes a long way, people....1.) Most people are aware of the maintenance that has been performed on a particular engine, the quality and quantity of that maint. and when the last time it was ran out of oil or water. For those who fall into the " lack of maintenence" catagory, you probably already know why your engine or driveline sound as it does. If you happen to take particulary good care of your car, there is a good chance that whatever noise or "happening" might be going on, it'll be much easier to remedy. There are always exceptions to every rule. Remember, its not what will happen, it's what can happen. Take care of your car, and it will take care of you. Theroad

89 volvo 240 dl when i put the car into gear i hear a clinking


need more info. I've had a few 240's come in that made noise when putting into gear. It was more of a KLUNK, then a constant rattle/buzz type of noise.
I turned out to be a combination of two noises, that were related. The motor mounts were shot and the exhaust heat shield above the rear muffler, was loose.
It seems that the broken mounts allowed excess exhaust pipe/muffler movement, which in turn came in contact with the loose heat shield. This was the KLUNK and the RATTLE.

Screeching sound at the back of engine at the top of head


Check all the bolts and fastenings for the heat shrouds around the exhaust manifold to make sure they are there (and firm). If you can undo them without snapping them, take the shrouds off to check for gravel trapped in that area. It could also be a failing cat converter, but a lot less likely. My next step would be to remove the rocker cover and have a look......
