Why is it loud while accelerating, then when I get to desired speed it quiets down?


It's loud when it's working hard and quieter when there's less load on the engine. That said, it doesn't explain what's happening. Everything I can think of, like torque converter, probably needs looking at by a specialist. It might be best to take it to one.

Loud Knocking noise coming from engine


Most likely the engine harmonic balancer on the front of the crankshaft is coming apart. This is a fairly common issue.

What does a loud clicking noise indicate that seems to quiet as the engine warms when cold starting a fuel injected dodge pickup indicate


The oil may be to thick or a partially blocked pick up (check the sump for a big dent) Lack of oil changes will also cause it as the oil starts turning to sludge & partially blocking things. As the oil warms it gets thinner allowing it to pass around the motor easier. I DON'T recomend the oil flushes. The motor may have to be partially disasembled eg: sump off to clean pickup or tappet cover off to replace lifters etc... Start by changeing the oil & filter with the recomended grade.

I have a 2002 bora tdi 100 s and the engine is quite tappy and loud, is there anything i can do to quiet the engine down or stop the tapping noise??? the engine itself runs and goes fine, i have been told...


hi,the first thing to do is an engine flush,then refill with10/40 or 20/50 oil, semi sythetic,not forgeting to change the filter.this particular engine is quite loud but the noise should die down after about 15/20 secs if its tappy.i would also reccomend adding wynns or another oil additive to help the self adjusting tappets quiten down.An oil blockage would show up as a loud knock (big end rumble)and the oil warning light would show on the dash.
after you do the oil change rev the engine to 3000 for 30 secs.this will help to get the tappets right.

98 sierra p/u 305 vortec trys to fire but dies let sit 20-30 min. and would start know that dont work trys to fire but less than befor new ign. control mod and starter what else could it be?


I would have a close look at the fuel pump.These are one of the weaker links in the vehicle.Key On -Engine off will run this intank electric pump for 3 seconds.This gives you an opportunity to listen for the pump and how it sounds overall(in a quiet place ,like a closed garage)...Sometimes a failing pump sounds a bit squeelish and loud,somewhat labored.A good working ,fresh pump sounds very smooth and quiet.Fuel pressure diagnostics might be in order as these pumps seem to work about like they sound....good luck

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps
