Change the oil before you do ANY driving, with a good quality oil and filter, one that has an anti-drainback valve like purolator, K&N, Bosch, Wix-you don't say how many miles, what year or model car, but it probably calls for 5W-30-it will not hurt to put in 10W-30 (or 10W-40) especially if it has high miles. make sure the car is warmed up before you drain it, and do not overfill it.

Hi sir madam I got a getz and theirs a sound coming from the front not sure is it the tensioner or the tappets how can i digonoise


Tappets usually make a 'clicking/ticking' noise which comes from the top of the engine.

A tensioner or pulley/belt tends to make a constant whirring/squealing noise.

This sound like you have either delay on internal lubrication to tappets,most probably due to correct oil either change or viscosity.
In how many miles you do change the oil ? Just do an engine oil flush and a engine oil & filter change using also a viscosity improve and follow for a different engine behavior.

Loud ticking noise coming from motor


This is probably tappet noise from the top end of the engine. However you should have it looked at quickly as these engines had a severe problem with oil sludging, even when recommended services were done.
This caused all sorts of problems, so see if you can get it fixed before the engine develops something terminal.

A loud ticking noise?


No I would not chase to the pistons, these vehicle were very comon in creating HLA noise hydraulic lash adjusting valves, meaning the valves pump up with oil as the oil gets thinner they dont pump up as fast and create a very loud ticking noise, I would not express a great concern over simplicity, dodge was famous for this, they really were.

2003 Ford Ranger ticking noise, not a ping or knock. It is coming from the engine.


THE ticking noise coming from the engine ..is it just a 1 tick on idle at about each rev of engine,,and does it make any differance to the running of engine ,,Does it get softer when it gets warmer.
As it sounds like a loose tappet and being a oil adjusted tappets this thought of thing does come in now and again. and the best thing to do is to get a small plastic tube 25mm (or 1' ) and 2ft long and put it to your ear and listen at the top of the rocker cover ans see if the noise gets louder in a certen place ,as you will hear it if it is there..
Other wise it could be a Small end on the conrod which the piston is connected to.... lets hope not.
So let me know as soon as poss the answers to all the above. Ron
