Sounds like lifters worn out to me,but if you want a manual to www.alldata.com and get an online manual there better than the ones you can at any auto parts store.

Before you go and change the oil pump. I would try using ValveMedic in the oil. This is something that you can pick up at the parts store. It could just be sludge build up in the lifters, or oil system. Put the treatment in before you change the oil. Run for about 100 miles. Change the oil and see if helps. I have used ValveMedic for the same problem before, and it works great. Also, It is a lot cheaper than an oil pump, gaskets, and all of that.

Cranks good but hard start


Could be a number of things, but I would start with the engine coolant temp. (Ect) or air temp sensor. These will control your air fuel ratio and make it hard to start. I had a vehicle which started great when cold, but started hard when warm.

1996 GMC Yukon will not start after hearing intermittent clicking noise while running


Sounds like you lost the serpentine belt, which runs the alternator. When you heard the ticking sound, did you notice if the battery light came on, Check the belt and fully charge the battery. Do not jump a dead battery. Wear safety glasses when servicing a battery, an explosion and acid hazard exist

When I start up my truck it makes a slight reving noise. The RPM fluxuates just a little. But it only started since it has been really cold.


Pretty typical in cold weather. Computer is compensating for the outside air temperature. It should slow down after it runs a bit. Mine does the same thing this time of the year. . .
Good Luck

How often are hoses and belts change on a 2001 Yukon? Thinking of buying a 2001 Yukon..has only 64k miles, but 2nd owner said he has not done anything to the car other than regular oil change. He bought...


Hoses about every 6 years, Belts every 30k And if its that clean, Drive it and make sure it shifts out ok warm and hot, Get it up to 50-60 mph with all sounds off and listen for a whine even a slight wine, If none heard id say buy it, The whine i spoke of is rear diff noise by the way.

2001 FORD FOCUS LOAD TICKING NOISE


it very well can be that depending on the severity of the ticking noise, if it sounds like its coming from the top of the engine, place your hand on it only when you first start it up and if you can feel it knocking slightly and if the noise dies away once warmed up id say its your lifter, if its a heavier knocking rather than a ticking and comes from below or bottom end of engine it may be big end bearing, not good. try putting some engine treatment through the engine oil and make sure you run it in as directions state then change the oil and filter and see if that helps :)
