SOURCE: Ac compressor. is making a ticking noice

This is normal, the compressor is spun by the fan belt, and when everything equalizes the pulley stops moving. This repeats over and over again.

Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!

SOURCE: A loud ticking noise?

this sounds like its the piston (small ends,,,)
when its reving hight its very loud? ticking over not very loud?
if it was big ends there would be noise from the bottom of your engine and a loss of oil presher,
small ends are were the pistons have a pin through them holding them onto the con rods,, they dont normaly wear out this fast though!!!

SOURCE: easiest way to fix lifter tick/tap on a 1991 300zx

open the valve cover and feel all your lifters to see which is loose.

spin your push rod with your fingers while tightening your rocker arm(should be 5/8) once you can not spin the push rod any more give it 3/4 of a turn and your good to go repeat for any loose rocker arms.

Can lifters be replaced


Oh yea, lifters can be replaced , best if you replace cam an lifters together ! Loud knocking is not usually associated with lifters , they usually make a ticking noise ! Knocking noise is most usually in the bottom of the motor , main or rod bearings . most of the time rod bearings !

2008 oil leak and engine ticking


An engine used oil for lubrication and colling. If there is no oil then there is no lubrication. No lubrication means lots of heat and friction. Is it a ticking or banging noise? I do believe it is an ohc engine so it couldnt be a lifter ticking. It is probably a rod knocking. It so then it will more than likely need an engine

Blue smoke when starting van & engine ticking very loudly in gears1 to 4


Blue smoke is caused from the engine burning oil along with the gas and oil. This indicates an INTERNAL oil leak. An external oil leak is one that makes spots on the driveway.
The ticking is probably from low oil or low oil pressure. Id have it checked pretty soon by a professional mechanic. It may be time to spend serious money.

My car has a loud ticking noise coming from the engine, i was told it was a lifter is this going to cause my car to shut down?


Get an opinion from a mechanic. If it is a lifter a professional needs to adjust it because it must be within thousandths of an inch. You would need the correct tools and experience to do this job.

I just bought a 2008 Sienna w/ 44,000 miles. When the engine is cold, doesn't have to be really cold, I hear this ticking noise (not loud) when engine is under slight acceleration between 1500- 2000 rpm....


Sounds like you are describing lifter noise. Go to the car store and buy a pint of Berrymen's Chemtool. Next time the engine is cold, pour the Chemtool into the engine oil. Do your normal driving for the next few days or weeks until you have 150-200 miles (none of them should be highway miles) on the engine, then have the oil changed. Drive for 2000-3000 miles, and do the same thing all over again. Repeat this a couple of times. If the lifter loosens up, your good to go. If it doesn't, then it will have to be repaired by tearing into the engine.

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

Ticking sound


A sound that is deeper than a lifter or rod bearing is usually a main bearing, though it's possible that a cracked flywheel can also make a similar noise, and won't make noise when under no load. You have identified it as engine related and not a c/v joint or other driveline item?
I suggest that you bring it to a shop known to have older experienced techs...only long term experience can train your ear to be able to tell the difference in noises like yours. I'm leaning towards a flywheel at this point but possibly actually hearing it would change my mind. (forget the lifter thing... I may have mis-read original post.)
