I would defiantly not run the vehicle. If your oil pump went you'll be running it without oil. BAD!!!!! Take it to the dealership or garage and have the cause determined. Your valves are ticking because you have a lack of oil or an upper end problem.

My 1995 nissan pickup is ticking and smoking from exhaust. Seems that oil is coming out of exhaust. 4cyl. 5-speed. 160k


if its burning oil then you could have a pcv valve problem(plugged) and changing it could fix it.the other things are bad rings,bad valve guides or valve seals.it could also be a cracked head or a bad head gasket leak by the oil drain passages and combustion chamber drawing in oil and burning.the ticking noise is either to thin of oil(dirty) by not changing it frequently low oil level or worn engine components that will need repair.

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.

My ford Explorer make a ticking sound at low speeds


Does it sound like it's coming from the engine? If so, you may have a valve sticking. The sound will pretty much go away as you pick up speed because the valves are working faster and harder. The best solution I can give will be to buy an engine cleaner that is added to your oil. drain about 1 quart of oil from the engine and add the cleaner to the oil. Start the engine and let it run for about 5 min. Drain all the oil and replace the oil filter and new oil to the engine. Sometimes this will have to be done 2 times but usually 1 will do. One other issue could be a spark knock, low grade gas causes this. If I run in to this problem I usually suggest buying prestone octane booster, which increases the grade of gas and cleans the fuel system at the same time.

My valves are ticking on my 97 doge 2500 pick up it has the 360 magnum can i adjust them or not .....


Ticking sound is normal from a health diesel engine is normal.

Diesel engine that does a lot of towing or carry large payload can use a head adjustment every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I would keep tabs on the valve cover for oil leak.

Take it in the shop when the valve cover start to leak.

Do the valve adjustment,the valve cover and oil change at the same time.

Shell ROTELLA T Multigrade SAE 15W-40 is my prefer motor oil.

98 Volvo V70 GLT - Oil Pump or Valve Job?


Most common cause of ticking in these is the oil pick-up seals. Remove the pan and replace the oil pick-up tube seal, the two seals for the tube in the pan and the 2 O-rings on the right side of the pan. And dont use silicone to seal the pan back up, because it WILL leak, I highly recommend the Volvo sealant

My 1993 rodeo makes a loud ticking noise until it reaches 2000 rpm's . Then it just shuts off like a switch. My mom had one and hers done the same thing. It sometimes doesn't also rev the rpm's down when i...


That ticking your hearing is most likely a valve lifter or tappet that is dirty or failing.At low RPM the oil pressure is lower, as you increase the engine speed the oil pressure rises; with this the lifter sees more oil pressure too and it fills fully with oil thus the ticking stops. You may be able to fluch the oil system in hopes of cleaning out any debris; my gut says the lifter is beginning to fail and should be replaced. If you have the ability and tools this is something you can do in your garage; pick up a manual and review the procedure before tearing into the engine.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Engine has ticking sound, oil light came on, and it's full of oil


The ticking could be a spark plug wire shorted out to ground of which you can watch in the dark while the car is running and see if you see a plug wire jumping to ground which will look like a lightening bolt hitting the ground. It could also be a lifter making noise. Could be a exhaust leak. What is your oil pressure? Does your gauge tell you pounds of pressure or is it just a light?

2001 Buick Century Ticking Noise


Okay, lets hope it is something simple. Remove the underhood light bulb. At night, in the dark, start the engine and look under the hood. You may be able to see sparks jumping. This would be bad wires. If you can see where the spark plugs go and one has a spark jumping it is just one bad sparkplug. Turn off car-replace underhood bulb.
If you see no sparks then it is most likely the valve train. If you have adjustable lifters they need someone to tighten them up to specifications. If they are not adjustable you may need to replace worn parts.
Make sure you keep fresh and plenty of oil in the engine. It can not repair worn parts but if the oil is low or dirty you will have bigger problems.

'97 Dodge Dakota 5.2l oil pressure problems


How many miles? Sounds like its time for a motor rebuild. I would do a leakdown test, puts the cylinders under pressure and it is supposed to hold it for a certain amount of time. Or if you do not have access to a leak down tester, a compression tester. Sounds like the motor has quite a few miles. If you want to limp it to its death, put some thicker oil in it. 20w50.
