Carried my 2005 free star to local shop and they said they thought it was a lifter or a rocker arm problem it makes a loud knocking sound..


Takes about 1 1/2 hours to figure it out. I can remove both valve covers in about an hour. 15 to 20 minutes to see which one is bad, if one of them are bad. Lifters and rockers arms usually make a ticking sound. Knocking is usually the piston rod. could be bearings at the crank or the wrist pin at the top of the rod. I've seen valve springs broken and only cause a ticking noise.

Motor knock sounds like rocker arms or lifters?


If your engine is knocking the sound with be at the bottom of your oil pan but if you have lifter or rocker arm problems the sound will be at the top of your engine. One other thing you said your car has 315k it might be time to change your oil pump.

2002 2.7 liter chrysler has a knock in the engine. sounds like it is coming from the valves


if the car has alot of miles on it , a little bit of top engine noise is nothing to worry about. if the car does'nt have alot of miles on it or the noise is real loud then you may have a lose valve or need rocker arm ajustment.

I have a knocking noise coming from the front of my 3.7 liter engine on my 2004 Jeep Liberty have a check engine light with code 304 the knock sounds like tap not fast during idling the sounds gets a...


I HAVE SAME JEEP SAME PROBLEM...I have found out after research that all these jeeps like yours and mine have a common problem with engine clogging and the valves sticking and the rocker arms coming off.....This is true I pulled my valve cover off and the rocker arm had come off because the valve was stuck ....Pressure between the rocker and the cam and the valve is the only thing that will keep the rockers from falling off......And when the valve starts to stick the rocker falls off.....This is sad but true.....Also it is badly clogged with black chuncks of burnt oil....I dont know what causes this other than the wrong weight oil....but I only used the wrong oil maybe 2 times...
There should be a recall on these because the rocker arms shouldnt come off.....I think the rockers are wrong from the factory....I am a level 2 chrysler tech.and also ASE certified.......It makes me angry that they built these so weak !! ....All you can do is remove the heads and have a complete valve job done and clean the oil pick-up tube in the oil pan as well....then a complete engine flush..
.....ONLY use 5w20 weight oil also........If you dont have the cash dont tear it down cause I almost guarantee you have the same problem as I.............Hope this helps.................Metalpoet

2001 jimmy makes a knocking noise when cold. as it warms up the noise gets quieter then stops. It sounds like the rocker arms are tapping?


Most likely it is the rockers tapping the lifters. the crankcase has only leftover oil in it at the start, and has to wait for the oil pump to get it there.
I would add a stablizer to your oil...like LUCAS. It may help a bit with a cold engine.
If the knocking is in the piston, then you should see some indication on the spark plugs...like oil or blow-by build up.

Pontiac sunfire valve noise


If it's a ticking noise that speeds up with the speed of the engine, it's a worn valve lifter.
You can try tightening it down by taking the valve cover off and tightening the bolt on the rocker arm, but don't tighten it too much, you will end up with other problems.
