This is a very common problem or so i have heard mine has been doing it for two years and its still fine. what i do is buy some gunk oil treatment or i hear seafoam works good too. put it in 5 min before oil change and it will clean the build up in oil passages and free the sticky valves then use mobil one full synthetic oil its much better plain oil wont help it ive tried. and the noise will go away untill its time to do it again. i usually get 4-5 months noise free then it will start again.

I think it would be your values or rocker arms tapping. Did you ever get it fixed? I just bought a 1996 honda passport and it also has this problem..I'm trying to figure out if it is worth getting fixed or not.

Oil light is on car is full of oil engine is making taping noise is the oil pump gone bad on a 2000 crysler concord with a 3.2 engine


The oil light comes on when oil pressure falls below 7 pounds of pressure. A tapping noise from the engine is an indication of poor oil flow/pressure supply. You may have an oil pump failure or if high mileage, excessive bearing clearances that can cause oil pressure problems.

If the engine light came on, there is a trouble code present. Most parts stores will scan for codes at no charge. please post codes for more information. With the tapping, I would definitely check the oil level.

Tapping noise coming from the engine on a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country


Maybe.
Carbon buildup is a common problem with today's engines and the fuel we use.
The computer would have ******** the spark timing when the tapping was going on which would have caused the power loss on acceleration.
Its possible you have damaged the bearings and valves from running on low oil, especially by the previous owner. The engine can run on one quart of oil as long as it makes enough pressure to keep the warning light off, but still not have enough volume to reach the valves on top of the engine.

NOISE WHEN COLD THEN GOES AWAY WHEN WARMS UP,SOMEONE SAID MAIN BEARINGS GOING BAD


Hard to say over the internet but I will try to explain. If the noise is a distict KNOCK KNOCK and it sounds like it is coming from the bottom of the engine, then it most likely is a rod or main bearing. If it is a TAP TAP noise that sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine, then most likely a valve lifer is failing/failed.
the fact that it goes away when the car is warm, makes me lean towards a bad lifter. Normaly if a bearing is bad and knocking, the noise doesn't go away.

The KNOCK noise will be somewhat hollow sounding and the TAP TAP sound will be more solid. If the KNOCK KNOCK is solid, then a rod or main bearing has most likely failed to the point that a new/reman engine will be needed.

Oil light came on and there was a moaning tapping noise....... then the check engine light came on... then there was only a slight tapping sound... i added a qt of oil and tried to drive the car home and...


Was the oil low before you added any? What computer check? You went to a shop to have it scanned? Have the code issues repaired first then move on to the noise issues. Not a very new car I hope your not the original owner because you should not have these problems if you maintained it over the years and don't have 250,000 miles on it. If that's the case get rid of it
