These cars are known for the lifters going out, or getting plugged up, try running some engine flush thru it, and changing the oil a couple times to get the crud out this usually works for me buy some motor flush and follow the instructions on it I've also substituted a quart of atf for a quart of oil for 50 miles or so and then change the oil, this also seems to work

2000 crv honda just got a new timing belt and water pump after a couple of days now it make a noise (loud clicking noise) when I start it up


The noise you describe may be due to hydraulic tappet leak back form a oil that is of the incorrect viscosity or a cheap oil filter that doe's not have an anti leak back valve in it .The noise is until the oil pressure builds up and makes the hydraulic tappets work properly.

I have a loud humming noise comming from the front end of my 1996 pontiac sunfire constantly help please.


Does the humming noise reduce or change in pitch slightly when turning a corner?
Most likely a wheel bearing failure. Also, when one wheel bearing on one side fails, the other is not often far behind. I often therefore replace in pairs.

If your car has hydraulic tappets and low low oil pressure at engine speeds then it can make tapping noises. Oil pressure is needed to maintaine the tappets clearances, excessive cleaeances will produce noises.

How can i make a tappet clearance of honda vtec 98


You will need a "tappet gauge/blade" and then here is what you have to do:
1. open engine head, its the cover of engine where HONDA is written.
2. Now jack up and one side of the car and put the car in 4th gear
3. Start from any one side, if the tappet is not in "UP" position then rotate the wheel (the jacked up side of car) and once the tappet moves up, stop there.
4. Loosen the nut of the tappet and put the tappet blade in between the tappet gap. Now using screw driver, tighten the tappet so that blade fits snugly between the gap and without moving anything (blade and screw driver) ask a helper to tighten the tappet nut finally.
5. Repeat above procedure for each tappet.

If you do it carefully, there will be no tappet sound at all.

Engine noise on 1995 Buick Riveria SC 3.8 L V6


remove the supercharger belt... check for play in the supercharger pulley... there is a plastic coupler that connects drive from the supercharger cone to the main body of the supercharger... these wear out ... it is a problem on both the series 1 (1995) and series 2 (96-99) supercharged 3800 engines

1997 pontiac sunfire - I'm hearing a clunking noise occassionally - could be from the front right side, could be from the back right side of the car. Noise has been heard when changing from reverse or park...


Could be a bad c/v joint on the end of the drive axle but can also be just about any of a number of things. You need to get under there and do a good visual inspection. If the rubber boot on the joint is split or torn it's a safe bet that the joint has failed.
