Possible coolant blockage in engine. Fan does not run because temp sensor is located is part of coolant that is not getting hot. Describe loud noise please. You are likely facing terminal engine failure, however, try back-flushing coolant passages on engine. This may be tricky, but you could remove thermostat and try running engine, or fabricate a rubber stopper on the end of a garden hose to put in hole where thermostat goes, remove lower radiator hose and flush water as hard as possible. A big rust flake could be blocking coolant flow. PS: have you recently had any work done on cooling system? I have seen some stupids use so much sealant when replacing a water pump that excess blocks coolant flow. Lots of luck. "The rusty one"

Ticking sound upon acceleration. worse when cold


When you start the car with cold engine the oil light indicator is on even after the engine started?
If the sound comes from the engine itself you could check the oil level with cold engine before start.
If oil level is ok ( between low and maximum marks on the dipstick ) then could be 3 posible causes:
1. Bad oil
2. Faulty oil pump
3. Worn camshaft bearing, worn crankshaft bearing, or faulty piston bolt.
It may help if you bring on some more details like since when is making that noise, in what circumstances appeared and so on.

I have 2001 bmw 740il and when i cold start my car in the morining, engine makes very loud roring sound and then calmes down.


This is due to a clogged oil pan filter and gunked up lifters. Remove oil pan and clean screen filter. Use and internal engine cleaning solution before your next few oil changes to clean valves and lifters.

Engine light comes on and says engine overheating


Could be three things: Hopefully the first...
1. radiator fan not blowing. (most likely)
2. Radiator clogged (not likely)
3. Head gasket blown... (very possible)

If #1, system cannot detect fan not blowing. It may be the fuse or the relay switch, disconnecetd wire at fan, or burned-out fan motor.
If #2, Flush radiator
If #3, you will see WHITE smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water drops.
Your new oil will have a "milky" look (check the oil dipstick). That is water.
When engine is COLD, remove radiator cap and start car. You will notice high-pressure "bubbles" squirt out of the radiator, even before the engine warms up.

I hope it is #1. and that this is helpful.

Leaking coolant from engine..


Unfortunately, This Problem is Going to Be Either a Blown Head Gasket or a Cracked Block. Just in Case, Check all the Hoses and Check and see if your Model Has a Transmission Cooler Installed, Hopefully on of these is the Culprit. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
