The clicking sound is your lifters starving for oil. Now that it is surging, you have a collapsed lifter. You will have to do a top end rebuild on the engine and replace all the lifters. But make sure you fix the oil leak so you don't have the same thing happen again.

2006 Toyota Corolla, every morning there is squeaky sound when I start the car. Later, it goes away. It is for the past six months. Is it serpentine belt causing this sound, if so how I can loose...


The problem is the rear motor mount is filled with hydraulic fluid that leaks onto the accessory drive belt. The motor mounts fail prematurely and the fluid makes the belt squeak. Toyota dealership I took my 2006 Corolla to replaced the motor mount and belt free of charge.

I have a 100 series landruiser which is making a bad ticking type noise on start up ,it sounds like it is coming from the water pump or the air con compressor but not really sure.It stops making noise...


try this,when you change the engine oil and use a flushing oil before you finally fill with 10/40 semi synthetic,add stp/wynns oil additive or molyslip. the ticking is possibly a sticky cam follower(they are self adjusting with oil pressure)the water pump/air con comp cannot "tick"but they can squeel.....

I have a 1990 Toyoto Corolla with 1.6 EFI engine. I can't find the oil pressure sending switch. I need to change it as my oil pressure light on the dashboard flashes when I stop.


OK, first check your Idle and make sure you are within range. The sending unit is on the front left half side of the engine. FYI the oil pressure switch on this car has changed it is made out of a new rubber so if you need this one do not buy OEM replacement the original had a weak diaphragm make sure it is the updated one ask.

Motor ticks


Lifters sound like they are bleeding down. Try changing the oil with a multi viscosity oil. chk oil Pressure. If lifters are over adjusted the lifters can't pump up properly or retain the oil properly

Tick In motor every few seconds after intake gasket changed


Sounds like when they did the intake,They drained the fluids but forgot to fill them back up and since the oil was near empty,I would say it's a lifter.But they can be reprimed or replaced a whole lot easier than some other possible causes.

HELP


Coolant that goes down, but is not leaking visibly (check for puddles after parking), is probably a head gasket problem. Have u been checking the oil level? Is it going up, or not using as much as before? This is usually an indication of a bad head gasket, which allows the coolant to leak into the oil. The ticking noise can actually be the head gasket also. As the vehicle warms up, things expand, and any leak in the head gasket will close up and the ticking noise will not be noticeable. As time goes on, the 'ticking' will last longer, and get worse. Have u noticed if this ticking is lasting longer than when u 1st heard it? Let me know how u make out. countrycurt0
