2001 azteck 49000 miles use very little once every


The 3.4L engine has special pistons that are designed to expand as the engine heats up. When the engine is cold, the pistons make a knocking sound that resembles lifter noise or piston slap. As long as the noise goes away after the engine warms up, don't sweat it; this is normal.

My 2003 x5 bmw 4.6is, makes a knocking noise in the Engine upon stating it up, but usually goes away after a few seconds.


Sounds like excess bearing clearance, when the engine sits overnight the oil between the bearings and the crankshaft is able to run back into the oil pan. When you first start it up it takes a few seconds for the oil pump to fill the spaces back up and you get some clatter.

Loud ticking noise when first staring, engine stalls sometimes when starting it unless I hold the gas pedal down


The TPS would be what I would do had that problem once myself solved the problem. as for the ticking noise sounds like a lifter is bleeding down as long as the noise goes away you will be ok. But may I suggest that if you are going to keep the vehicle for awhile longer you might want to have a set of lifters put in it.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

Tapping/ticking noise when rpm goes above 2000 with check oil warning on my chevrolet lumina ls 2005 model


You will have to take an oil pressure reading and compare to specifications. It could be that the pick up screen is plugged. Do not drive the car as damage to engine will occur.

I just turned on my car after being out of town for a few days and it made a loud knocking sound and the service engine light is on. It has never made this sound before. It's not the weather.


alot of times when you let a car sit for a while, the oil will slowly drain down into the oil pan. When you start the engine, the knocking you hear is all the metal parts flying around, waiting for the oil pump to start spraying the oil everywhere. If you start it back up, let it run for a minute and listen for the noise to quieten down, it should eventually go away. You can help prevent the dry start as you are having by using good synthetic oil, and sometimes adding in LUCAS oil treatment.

Why does the oil light come on for just a few seconds after engine has been driven 50 or so miles? If i rev the engine it goes out. There is plenty of oil and changed every 3000 miles.


It's possible you have an oil pressure sender going bad. On several late 90's Jettas I have worked on this was the case. Eventually your oil light will be on continuously and then eventually start blinking all the time.

Make sure the oil is at the right level first and then as long as you are sure you have no other problems test the oil pressure sender unit.

Ford Escape engine light on/blinking, faint knocking noise


If your check engine light came on when the problem occurred, then you need to have the diagnostic codes read. I am cheap, so I would suggest going to an Advance or Auto Zone, they will read the codes and interpret them for you in hopes of selling you the part that will fix it. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!

Thumping in Transmision


Could easily be torque converter internal broken part. This is a common problem. I would check the transmission oil filter and the pan to see if there are any metal filings anywhere. If so, you need new trans and torque converter. Rick
