Could bad a lifter gone bad or dirty, start with the simple and add a bottle of http://www.marvelmysteryoil.com/ to your engine oil. This free up and lifters that may have dirt in it, it the noise is still there. The most likely your going to have to have your rocker arms or lifters replaced.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

I have a 2000 s500 Mercedes Benz i try to tap into my radio for power with a aftermarket radio and loss all power air unit alarm not working fan running high


The yellow wire is for memory on the radio. You have to tap into a key on power source for the on/off button on the radio. Sounds like you may have messed up other components by tapping into a data wire. You can unhook the battery for about 30 minutes and see if they reset. If not, you most likely have to replace them. Send 12 volts to the wire wire and you can burn up many other computers.

if its kknocking thats not a good sign thats usually a motor rebuild but if its a tap then it could be a lifter or something loose under the valve cover ive had the tapping noise and knocking happen to me tapping on a 67 chevy truck turns out it was the lifters then knocking in a 92 honda accord turns out it was a bent rod so it had to have the motor rebuilt as far as power loss it may have a clog in a fuel line or something shouldnt be the pump unless the vehicle doesnt start or it shuts off while driving, and the smell of gas on the oil dipstick im not to familiar with that but im positive that thats not good;

MOTOR HAS TAPPING NOISE AND SLIGHT LOSS OF POWER..


more than lickey you need to have a new oil pump or oil sending unit installed. the tapping is due to not enouph oil to either the top of the engine or the bottom of the engine. if you do not have enouph oil pressure it will cause you to have low compresion and you need the compresion to move..... if you have some but not enouph compression than you will loose power trying to take off in fast paced traffic or up a hill and from a stop light....
