Mazda 6 problems 2006 when i start the car it makes a ticking noise but after warming up it go's


what you may need is only a high mileage oil change only.you should be using a castrol [in cold weather only] 30weight oil. i suggest a fram oil filter. i also suggest you use lucas oil treatment in with the oil change. your vehicle holds a 5quart oil change right? use 4 quarts of castrol oil and 1 quart of lucas oil treatment in with it that leaves one quart out.add the fram oil filter. if you are a do it your selfer you know what i mean. if not, do this,do not go to wal-mart,or a quick oil change place. use a local garage that you can trust. buy your supplies in advance, at autozone or advance auto,nappa auto, or wherever you trust for the best buy.all you need to pay for is labor only for oil change but demand they use your supplies and watch them to insure they do! the oil change is regular,but the lucas will cost $10.00 more on top of the oil change.you can get a DEAL on fast track oil change,yeah right! do this once, and you will never use fast track again!you will get top engine lubrication which will remove that clatter. you will also gat 10.000 more miles between oil changes! you get what you pay for right? i have a 1994 ford explorer with over 400.000 miles on it now. just trying to see it i can go a million miles with it.i do my oil change every 45.000 miles. with no oil added in between oil changes.change your oil,use 30weight castrol oil in winter,use 40weight castrol in summer usea fram oil filter, the chatter will go away when you first start it. your engine will be lubricated well and you will be happy not hearing the chatter during the first start. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are always here!

OIL SMOKE AFTER MAKING CORNER TURN.


two things Is the oil overfilled? Has the oil been changed recently enough? A fuel injector leak can put alot of gas in the oil. The valve covers may not be draining back to the crank case. The oil cap off just after its been running it shouldn't be full of oil. The oil stick may not be right, and the oil may need to be changed and only put in the right amount(5 quarts with the filter) and then run the car and then check the oil with the stick to see if the stick is right. I'm guessing that the oil smoke is coming out the tailpipe? Ifit's comingout from underthe hood then the motormounts may be broken enough to let the motor hit the belts to the engine bay side or the timing chain (worn out is grinding thoughthe timing chain cover and the oils coming out ( this usally takes alot of miles and many missed oil changes.

My oil is leaking from right below where the filter screws on


The oil filter sometimes starts leaking from old age, and if its been a while since your last oil change, just have your oil changed. On the other hand, your filter could be loose. Grab a rag in your hand and try and tighten the filter by turning it to the right. If it's loose, tighten it hand tight.

Ticking noise. Oil change was past due. Changed oil, tick still there. Removed valve cover on side ticking seemed to come from. Everything appeared to be in correct working order. What else could it be?


Change oil-right now. Use Havoline or Valvoline 10w30. Use only a wix oil filter. Nothing else. Get a can of "Seafoam" at your parts store. Follow directions(EXACTLY!) when putting in oil. At 500 miles, change oil again. Use same high quality oil and parts. Do not use "Seafoam" this time(It cleaned your engine of carbon and junk on the 1st o/c). Then buy a bottle of "Lubeguard" engine treatment. This will fix you right up. Do not use cheap oil or filters on these Fords. It will cause problems. Good Luck.
