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,

1993 3000GT LIFTER TICK


generally a car of that age is going to have a lifter ticking. it's usually nothing to worry about but can be fixed. basically you will have to take of the manifold covers and unless you know which one is ticking you will need to adjust/replace all of them. just don't get a lifter ticking confused with an engine knocking.

2003 dodge ram has light tick for a minute at cold start then goes away


The 'light tick' is most probably a valve lifter. The valve lifters in the engine are hydraulic, and are pressurized by the engine's oil pump.
When the engine gets some mileage, say 60 or 70 thousand miles or more, the engine is just not as tight as it once was. What happens is that the lifter loses its pressure when the engine is not running, because there is some wear. When you start the engine, the lifter takes a few moments to pressurize, and makers a ticking noise until it does. The 'ticking' is the sound of the valve being hit by the push rod, which is being pushed by the lifter. Once the lifter is pressurized, the 'ticking' sound stops. This is a very common thing for engines, it will eventually happen to nearly every one.
Sometimes, thin, old oil can cause this. If you have not changed the oil/filter in a while, you should do it now.

This is nothing to really worry about right now, but it is a sign of engine wear. Just be sure to run the proper oil in the engine, and do all the proper maintenance.

When i spped up my truck makes a ticking sound ..what could that be?


It is more than likely the lifters ticking. After a lot of miles then the hydraulic lifters don't hold oil pressure and start ticking. Engines will run for a very long time with the lifters ticking. I have a 1972 Nova that the lifters have ticked on for about 10 years and it still runs fine.

2000 Plymouth grand voyager ticking issue


YOU NEED TO ISOLATE TICK TO FRONT OR REAR BANK OF ENGINE..A MECHANIC'S STETHOSCOPE CAN HELP YOU ISOLATE..THEN REMOVE FRONT OR REAR VALVE COVER AND PUSH ON EACH ROCKER ARM..IF A LASH ADJUSTER(LIFTER)IS BAD,IT WILL BE SOFT OR COMPRESS WHEN YOU PUSH ON IT..LIFTERS ARE IN ROCKER ARMS ON A 3.0L AND IN BLOCK ON 3.3 AND 3.8L ENGINES

Engine ticking


Yeah its a hydrolic lifter or the big end bearing (hopefully the hydrolic lifter as its much cheaper to fix) does the ticking go away after 5,000 rpm?

yes it is a lifter or a rocker arm, add a can of a chemical called Berryman's chemtool, drive it for a day or so and drain the oil, if that doesn't cure the noise u are going to have to replace the lifter, rocker as nessararyt,
