The sound may be a CV joint when the fource is applied to it from acceleration.You should also hear it when you make a sharp turn left or right louder when given little acceleration if the CV joint is unservicable...........Hope this helps.

Heard a constant "clack, clack, clack, clack" then didnt want to accelerate. Died & now wont start. Any ideas??

Check the oil. nothing on the dipstick? happens on these 3.4 engines. Also could have way to much brown oil, intake gasket blown. Clacking is the rod bearings. Replace the engine.

2000 Chrysler 300M V6 with 150k miles started giving a clacking noise from the engine area after getting an oil change from Jiffy Lube. I was less than 2 miles from their shop when it started clackin

Sounds like your valve lifters. It's possible that they drained the oil and never refilled it. This does happen when they go on break or lunch half way through a job. They think they added the oil, but did not. Out you go, Mr. Clack-Clack.

Checked oil. it was 1 to 2 quarts low. no idea for how long. seems as though the top of the engine makes a slight tap or clacking sound when accelerating. what is the least that the problem could be. and...

It sounds like bearing noise to me. you ran it to low on oil and ran a bearing dry. you can try a thicker oil. if it doesnt go away your gonna need a motor job.

Clakking sound when i accelorate especially when its warmed up

This is not a good thing. A clacking sound on acceleration that gets worse when warm, in other words, when the oil thins out, is often a sign that a wrist pin bushing is worn out. The wrist pin is what connects the piston rod to the piston. With the vehicle in park, give is a couple of snappy revs and see what happens. If it clacks quickly and then dies down every time you do that, it is almost certainly the wrist pin. Now, without hearing it, it is difficult to be sure of the sound. If it is more of a sound like marbles hopping around in your engine, especially with hard acceleration, or going up a steep hill, get your timing checked, and make sure you are getting gasoline with a high enough octane rating for your vehicle. It's always good to go with a higher octane fuel than the recommended one.

Theres a strange noise coming from my 99 millenia's motor but seems when i accelerate it the noise goes away but wen idle the cars just clack clack clack even when driving it makes the noise unless you are...

It sounds like you have a valve or rocker issue, I would run an engine cleaner through the engine. I suggest draining 1 quart of oil, pour in the cleaner and run engine for 5 min. Let engine cool and drain the oil. Pretty much another oil change. This will hopefully clean a sticking valve if this is the issue. But I also would check for anything hitting the pulley's or fans that may have came loose. I've seen this a lot. Good Luck. It may take 2 cleanings for the engine, so don't get disappointed.

My car is sounding like a diesel engine some say it must be shimmed and others say its the timing please help

When is the clacking sound herd? Starting up only,idleing,on a pul, or on acceleration ? Can you pin point where the noise is comming from,front of engine, top,ect? Does the oil lite flicker at idle,or is the oil pressure low after running by the guage readout? What engine do you have? 4 cyl or v6? Is it high mileage? Valves may need adjustment,if they are not hydraulic type.need to know what engine you have!

Well you might be talking about a cam shaft noise or a crank-shaft noise. How does the oil look?
Is it over-due for an oil change?
What else can you tell me about the cars symptoms?
