Question about Jaguar XJR

Engine noise Lower end noise in the engine. It sounds like there is no oil moving through the engine. What is the factor that caused this? Is the car drivable? What needs to be fixed? Is it a costly repair on the engine or block? Thanks

It ran out of oil and now it makes loud noises and only runs for 2 minutes. What engine parts might be damaged?


Any moving part relying on lubrication can be affected by lack of oil.

Sounds like the engine is FUBAR!

Would likely require a complete tear down and rebuild of the engine. A loose piston rod will cause a loud knocking noise. You said very very loud, so I think that would be the engine lower end, a rod or crankshaft or piston problem.
If that's the case, you'd be better off just replacing the engine.

Kia 2.4 optima 07 engine makes knocking noise when I press fuel pad to move..I can't press fuel pad strongly the knocking noise increases more and may broken the rings


Sound like you have spun a bearing do to a blown head gasket. Does the oil on the dipstick look almost like a chocolate milkshake in color? If so your coolant has reached the oil pan and that can definitely cause the engine to spin a bearing causing a loud knocking sound.

Loud clacking sound on 2003 mazda 6. possible axle? happened after oil change. sounds like something is loose.


This noise can be caused by a defective outboard (wheel end) front axle constant velocity joint (known as a "CV" Joint). This would be louder on turns, more noticeable at lower speeds and sharp turns. Next it could be valve train noise, this would come from the top of the engine and this could be related to the oil change if a piece of dirt got into the oil supply to the hydraulic camshaft followers. At this point you need a professional to listen to the noise to determine the exact cause.

Rattleing nose in front of car when excelarting, the more gas given the louder it gets


I have the same car and when she got around 200,000 i had to start running a heavier grade of motor oil. If you have high mileage then the cam support bearings, crankshaft support bearings have excessive oil clearance. Listen to the knock with the hood open. If the sound is a deep low tone knock then it is the lower end of the engine. If the knock is high pitched like a tic tic sound it is usually in the top end. Lower end is where the crankshaft and pistion are located and the top end is where the valves and camshafts are located in that engine. You can take a broom stick and probe around the engine (careful not to touch moving parts) and put it to youe ear with a little presure and you can hear different sections of the engine to see where the knock is the loudest. Kinda like a doctors stefascope. If it is more like a grinding noise it could be a tensioner pulley, idler pulley, alternator bearing, a/c compressor clutch.

What does it mean when car says low oil pressure stop engine.


Hello, That message means there isn't sufficent oil lubricating the moving parts of the engine. This could be caused by little or no oil in the oil pan. Using the dip stick(yellow handle under the hood front passenger side) pull the dip stick out wipe off with rag, re-insert it and check on lower end and see where level is. It could also be a failed oil pressure sensor. It could also be caused by oil pump failure. If you have run the engine a lot it may have severe internal damage. Thank you.

Hi, i have a toyota fielder 1.8cc with a some problem which has now come up. when i switch on esp in the morning after staying overnight, it produces some really annoying sound from the engine. when the...


If it is a 'squealing' noise it's probably the alternator/power steering drive belt. Before you turn on the engine in the morning, lightlt smear or spray some oil on the inside of the drive belt to lubricate it. If the squealing stops/disappears, then that's the fault ..

That squealing noise can be caused by an incorrectly tensioned belt, or a worn belt. Replacement is the only option.

The other frightening sounds can best be described as 'rattles' or 'tapping'. When a car stands overnight all the oil drains back into the sump (oil/pan).

There are two things (usually) that can be cause the rattle/tap:
1. Because the oil hasn't been pumped around the system, at start up worn big end bearings can rattle and tap on the crankshaft until the oil 'fills the gaps'. The tapping/rattling goes away as the engine warms and oil is pumped around the lubricating system.

A 'bottom end tapping' is a symptom of worn big ends (they are bearings at the bottom of the piston and fit around the crankshaft).

2. A rattle/tapping from the top of the engine can either be a worn camshaft or 'lazy tappets'. Again, when the engine warms and oil gets to the camshaft and tappets (also called 'hydraulic lifters) the noise will disappear.

If your car has this rattling/tapping noise - identify whether it is coming from just under the rocker box (ie the camshaft/tappets..) or the bottom end of the engine (big end bearings).

If the noise is coming from the top of the engine, try an oil change with a can of thick 'additive' included. A lazy tappet (lifter) isn't too much to worry about. A worn camshaft will affect the performance of the engine, though continue to do its job. An oil change with an additive included may help in quitening things down.

A bottom end tap/rattle (or 'knock') - the sooner that is sorted out the better.

Clicking noise from engine when accelerating


The fact that it happened after you got it serviced is obvious that there something that was not done right. Check the engine oil, cuz clicking noise is sometimes caused by not enough engine oil or no oil at all!!
