Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

The pecking sound does not sound like a rod or anything in the motor itself, the sound seems to be coming from under the motor towards the transmission. The pecking is quite loud while the vehicle is idleing. Also the pecking does not occur 100% of the time. 2001 toyota 4runner

I had this same problem about 6 years ago and it drove me nuts,, I separated the transmission from the motor and found that one of the flywheel bolts had worked its way out and was sitting in the bottom of the bell housing and the flywheel was hitting it as it turned. this is something that I have only seen once in all my years of working on vehicles,, so it is a long shot -- but from what you said - it sounds like the problem that I was having.

Rebuilt the whole motor even a new head gasket problem burning a whiteish gray smoke and theres no oil pressure and the oil is still full and clean temp. gauge is normal and thers a pecking noise at the...

When you rebuilt the engine, did you replace the oil pump? Not replacing it a common mistake people make. If your have no pressure and it's pecking, don't continue driving it until the pump is replaced or you'll spin a rod bearing and ruin your crankshaft at the least, your block at worst. Good luck.

Having a "clicking" sound coming from engine, or dull "thumping"

could be anything from belt noise to lifter tick to rod knock..lifter tick is under the valve covers..rod knock sounds like hitting the block with a hammer..if its rod knock see what your oil pressure is.. should be around 30 to 45 psi cold..warm will be as low as 15..depending on oil type..most lifters can be adjusted by removing the cover and doing adjusting depending on the vehicle..good luck

Knocking noise in the engine

uuuoohh sounds bad knocking is usually a rod if its more of a pecking it could be a lifter. a rod will work its way through the block and its game over. a lifter can be freed up maybe on its own with a little help from seafoam after a few oil changes sry for the bad new best of luck

Hi :) Well it could be that you have blowen a timing chain and the pistons are hitting the valves or a connecting rod has broke and is banging agaist the inside of the block.

Motor makes a pecking sound at 2000 rpm only under a load.does not do it while reving parked

Noise out of the engine. Noisy valves? Low oil level? Is the sound like tick, tick, tick, tick......that's how bad valves sound. I don't know if you have solid lifters those have to be adjusted after some mileage. Hydraulic ones are self adjusting. Only a good mechanic can tell for sure.

92 Accord. Driver door not opening. Lock works. Took inside cover off. Rods going in to the Lock don't seem to be grabing any thing to open the door?

It sounds as though one of the rods (the one leading from the inside door handle to the latch, called the release rod. The other is called the lock rod) has slipped out of the latch at the door closure. Since you have removed the door liner (and the plastic skin, I assume) you should be able (with your window all the way down) to see what the situation is through the access hole near the lock/latch portion of the door. If the rod that hooks into the inner door handle doesn't feel as though it is connected to anything (when you pull it toward the front of the car) then the other end of that rod (the latch connection) has either broken or simply slipped out of the hole that it goes through (and may have fallen down some). There is normally a plastic rod retainer or something of that sort at both ends of that rod, to keep the rod in the holes it's supposed to go through. Sometimes they break of work loose. Take a careful look and you will probably be able to see if that is the problem. You say that the lock works. Does the outside door handle work? If so, that tends to indicate that there is nothing wrong with the latch itself.
