I get a noise very similar to what you are describing when my oil gets a little low....been told it is the tappers.

If you can see a visual spark from the coil, replace it. You may also have some loose wiring at the coil connections. Finally, the cable that goes into the distributor may be faulty. Go through your basic tune up guide lines for replacing plug wires, plugs, and coil, rotor and cap. I feel confident you will fix your problem with basic tune up know how.

This could be the engine is not firing on all its cylinders, there can be compression problem or spark plug not firing. Check compression dry and wet tests.

How much for lifters on a 1998 izusu trooper? And will that make you engine nock?


Lifters generally make a tick, tick, tick noise. If you have a low tone knock, you may have more severe issues, or what you may have is heavy carbon build-up on the pistons, contacting the cylinder head(s). What I suggest first is to use fuel injection cleaner and add it to the fuel tank a few times. You can go to your local part store and see what other products they have, such as "Seafoam," to assist in carbon removal. Extreme conditions may actually require the removal of the cylinder head(s) to gain access to the top of the pistons to physically scrape the carbon from them.

Blend door actuator nocking sound nocks for a minute or so then stops everytime i enter vehicle


This is a very simple fix for the actuator on the passenger side. Simply drop the glove box down, and the actuator is located behind it. you can even feel it when it is clicking. you can find the replacements online or at an autoparts store for 25-35 bucks. it will probably take less than 30 min to swap it out.

If you're getting ticking-type knock, I'd first look to the lifters. if it's a real hard knocking, it could be your main bearings on the lower end

Blinkers not working on 99 saturn SL1 (hazards not working either). All Other electrical (radio, headlights,brake lights are working) appears ok,fuses are good. Whats the problem? Blinkers went out without...


Check/replace the flasher control unit.
This unit is usually located under the dashboard. (It's the unit that normally sounds the audible 'click- click ' when the indicators flash).
