If the oil level got too low, it may have caused serious internal damage.
If that is the case, the noise usually gets louder and/or faster, the faster you rev the motor. Only an experienced mechanic can determine for sure exactly what the extent of the damage is.

98 ford escort ticking never loses power nor sluggish.pulled each each sparkplug ticking never stopped.what could it be


You mention a "ticking" sound,,is this from the top or bottom of engine..?

Does the ticking go on acceleration or increase with engine speed..?

A ticking noise from the top usually indicates camshaft/valve noise..

Run your engine until at normal temperature, then turn off and leave for 5 minutes for oil to settle..

Make sure your car is on level ground and check your oil level..wipe dipstick and check it again, make sure you push the dipstick all the way in an re check oil level. Top up if necessary.

The best thing to do is remove old oil filter. Drop the old oil and fit a new filter, top up with new oil, run the car and check oil level again, top up if necessary.

Low oil and old oil can wear thin and cause ticking noise from top of engine, and will also NOT PROTECT your engine...oil is the blood of your car, check levels weekly at most and change every 12 months or as recommended by your car booklet.. Use the BEST oil you can afford.

Tip

Ford Expedition


If you are having a ticking noise at start up, and have tried numerous other remedies to fix it then you may need to have the oil filter changed. The filter has a "valve" that keeps oil at the top of the engine. If this "valve" goes bad or weakens, the ticking comes from oil not staying at the top and the engine ticks until oil reaches the top end.

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,

Top end engine noise to Ford C-max


Sounds like you might have starved the bearings of oil which in your words , you've got a knackered engine. Probably too late for a pump.

Hello I have a Ford Focus 02 ghia 1.6 when driving it makes a loud ticking noise that has got worse in the last few days. I checked the oil a month ago when it started and it was V.Low I topped it up but...


The ticking noise, if related to your engine would get faster and slower "with" your engines' RPM. If it isn't matching the engine then I would be wary of a possible wheel bearing getting ready to take you for the U-Turn of your life! Try pulling (very hard) on the top of the tire closest to that area to see if you can feel looseness or "play" ...cuz there shouldn't be any "play" or noises at all.

My jeep is making a very loud tic noise coming from the motor...does this mean my motor is gone? How much am I looking at fixing this problem


ticking can be a few problems that are not terminal first check oil if low top off and see if noise quiets down if oil good than have oil pressure checked -may be clogging or bad oil pump-check check where the ticking is coming from if its the head area than possible need to clean repair or replace a valve train part-[clogged push rod ,bad/need adjustment rocker sticking /bent valve oil return clogging /sludge] if coming from front of engine check the pulleys and water pump or fan for damage or debris a ticking noise usually is a noise that can be repaired just need to pinpoint the location

A fairly consistent tapping noise from the top of the engine between 50 - 70 mph. After 70-75 mph in seems to quiet down.


sounds like a lifter is bleeding out or starving for oil at low revs
check oil level and oil pressure
if thats good lifter or tappet clearance next to check
is engine seviced regularly?
slugde build up can cause problems also
if V6 petrol see a lot of worn valve guides causing noise worse when warm and noise comes in and out at 1200RPM
tappet clearance issue noise would be there all the time
lifter can also come and go while holding revs up

Ticking noise from engine


You might have a bad hydraulic valve lifter (assuming this engine has them)... you could try an aftermarket product designed to unstick valve lifters.... any auto parts store carries them.

ThenI start my engine it sounds like diesel and no power


how is the oil level and pressure?, how many miles on engine? is this a loud knock or rather a clatter/ticking noise? knock is engine rod or crankshaft bearings, clatter loud ticking is valve follower noise. how long before it (the noise) goes away?
