How do i fix my 2001 740i bmw it makes a ticking sound win idleing


could possibly be a lifter tapping (Ticking) ,depending on how many miles the vehicle has on it might be time for lifters to be adjusted,most foreign overhead cam engines must have lifters adjuster periodically ,if you turn on the air its puts more of a load on the engine causing a louder sound (also check oil level an engine low on oil will start to tick too.. the more wear the engine gets the looser the lifters can get over time ,look in your service manual if you have one and see what the intervals are on lifter adjustment this can give you an idea.
possible only if
the ticking sound is coming from the top of the engine usually comes from under the vavle covers where the lifters are located,

Clicking or ticking sound coming from the rear


sounds like a malfunctioning relay in the wiper controls and youd better get that battery charged back up before it freezes and the water in it turns to ice.. it will kill that battery really quick..

Why is my engine making a ticking sound?


If there is no noise in the engine at idle but when you drive off then it is the movement that i9s causing the ticking sound. If you have a front wheel drive vehicle check the cv joints for wear or check u-joints for dry and worn on the tail shaft.

There is a ticking noise when moving


The ticking noise could be coming from a CV joint. Does the ticking noise go away in reverse? A loose brake pad (Anti rattle clip missing or broken) will move back and forth in it's mounting, a warped rotor will enhance this effect, the ticking noise will come when the pads moves upward into it's mounting causing a metal on metal tick.
Does the ticking noise get louder when you are turning the vehicle? If it does this would indicate a worn CV joint.

Ok so my engine is making a ticking sound in the far back what is it?


My guess is that it's a lifter. It's best to talk with a dealership mechanic about the best course of action with your specific vehicle. Usually a engine will last a very long time with a lifter tick. And don't forget to always check for recalls on all the cars you own. Here is a couple I found for your call. In this case it has nothing to do with your ticking problem but for future reference its always a good idea to make sure it's not part of the problem.
Auto Recall Date:MAR 23, 1994 Vehicle Component: POWER TRAIN:MANUAL TRANSMISSION Estimated Vehicles Affected:31295 1992 Subaru Legacy Defect Summary:WHEN THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN CONTINUOUSLY UNDER EXTREMELY COLD TEMPERATURES (-22 DEGREES F.) AND HIGH HUMIDITY WEATHER CONDITIONS, THE TRANSMISSION BREATHING (AIR) VENT CAN BE BLOCKED DUE TO MOISTURE FREEZING AT THE OIL LEVEL GAUGE. IF THIS OCCURS, PRESSURE INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION CASE WILL INCREASE AND PUSH OUT THE REAR OIL SEAL, CAUSING TRANSMISSION OIL LEAKAGE. THE LACK OF LUBRICATION CAN BURN THE INTERNAL COMPONENTS OF THE TRANSMISSION, CAUSE THE TRANSMISSION TO SEIZE AND THE VEHICLE TO COME TO A SUDDEN STOP. Defect Consequence:SUDDEN STOPS WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING CAN CAUSE VEHICLE OCCUPANTS TO BE THROWN AROUND THE VEHICLE AND CAUSE LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL WHICH CAN RESULT IN AN ACCIDENT. Remedy:DEALERS WILL MODIFY THE OIL GAUGE PIPE AND MODIFY THE OIL LEVEL GAUGE (DIPSTICK) OR REPLACE IT, DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF DIPSTICK IN THE VEHICLE. Notes:SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. Auto Recall Date:APR 01, 1992 Vehicle Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY Estimated Vehicles Affected:9500 1992 Subaru Legacy Defect Summary:A MISALIGNMENT OF THE REAR SEAT CUSHION LATCHING BRACKET REINFORCEMENT PLATE TO THE FLOOR REQUIRED A MACHINE TAP TO CLEAR THE OPENING FOR A MOUNTING BOLT. THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK MAY HAVE BEEN PUNCTURED WHEN THE TAP WAS USED. Defect Consequence:THE PUNCTURE IN THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK COULD CAUSE FUELTO LEAK, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A VEHICLE FIRE WHEN LEAKS OCCUR NEAR A SOURCE OFIGNITION. Remedy:INSPECT THE FUEL TANKS; REPLACE THEM IF THEY ARE PUNCTURED. Notes:SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC.

A motor runs with no one in the car


The cooling fan on the radiator is being turned on by the radiator temp switch. This is normal. It keeps excessive heat and pressure from building up inside your engine. Excessive heat can cause radiators to overflow or hoses to burst. It is NOT a bad thing for that fan to be running for 2 - 3 mins.

I'm buying a 88 Iroc-z Camaro.. It has 97000. mi


That ticking is usually a loose rocker arm. Use a mechanic stethoscope and you will find which one needs adjusting or replacing. A push rod may be partially clogged and caused excessive wear. Older vehicles which have been in storage often have oil leaks and related. This happens if the vehicle has not been started on a regular basis. Nonuse causes seals and gasgets to dry and shrink so be aware and look for leaks.

2004 Lincoln Navigator, Strange ticking noise coming from rear passenger 3 row area over wheel well some sort of computer box. only when turn ignition or vehicle running, sounds like clock ticking


This is caused by a blend door actuator on the rear a/c unit. There are 2 located on the case. Take it to a dealer and they will know what you are talking about.

Ticking noise


It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
